Helping businesses and individual with video, community management, and social media – Andrew Ledford 562-423-1691
I have found the new Google Plus collections a useful new G+ feature. The one caveat is that they do encourage me to spend more time finding and posting interesting content. While content curation is less time consuming than content creation, it does require a considerable investment of time. I have started spending a bit more time curating and posting to collections than I would like.
While the new feature does take more time out of the day I am happy to report one of my collections is getting some fairly good traction. My History and Archaeology collection gets quite a few new followers a day. I am guessing it gets between 50 and 100 new followers a day. I am planning on experimenting with posting a new video series in the History and Archaeology collection. The new series I’m working on will be called “Who Speaks For The Ancestors.”
I have always said my Google plus profile stream was like a virtual museum.
The new collections feature has changed how I use Google Plus. This new addition to G+ has also encouraged me to change my daily social media behavior. Instead of having a separate page for posting my Video, social media, and business posts I now post them to separate collections. This does make my main stream busier than I would like it to be. I’m not sure all my G+ friends want to see everything I post. I will probably make future collections opt in only. Right now all of the collections are set to public.
On the up side I do like having a separate place to curate video and social media content.
