Google+ Tips & Tricks to Get You Started – Part 3
Are you ready to get familiarized with Google+? If so, make sure you check out the other two parts to this article. If you have already read up on all of the Google+ tips articles I’ve written, you’re probably getting pretty tired and wondering when this series of articles is going to end. Well, I have some good news for you; this is going to be the last one! So, get your cup of coffee ready and those reading glasses one last time. This is the final chapter to my Google+ Tips & Tricks to Get You Started articles.
Sharing is something that is extremely straight-forward and shouldn’t throw you for a loop. If you have a profile on Facebook, you should definitely be comfortable with the Google+ sharing features. Also, you can add in your geo-location with Google Places. However, Google Places is actually disabled by default and I would highly suggest keeping it that way. If you are ever going to use that feature, I would suggest doing it while you are travelling. I would keep your home location private.
Google+ does enable you to be able to mute posts and remove them from your notifications. For instance, if a post gets commented on that you have already lost interest in, it could pop right back up in your notifications. If you don’t want this to happen anymore, just click on the arrow in the top right of the post and select the mute button. After that, you won’t receive notifications about that post anymore. If you want to unmute it, simply click on the mute button again.
Shortcuts are something that a lot of people don’t use, but if they did, they would find that they can be very beneficial to their browsing experience. Therefore, I am going to list some keyboard shortcuts you can use with Google+. Trust me, Google+ keyboard shortcuts are not something long and confusing that you will have to memorize. Instead, they’re fairly simple.
Q – Will enable you to open the chat.
K – Will enable you to scroll up in a post.
J – Will enable you to scroll down in a post.
Enter – Will enable you to start up a comment.
Tab – Will enable you finish a comment.
Space Bar – Will enable you to scroll down your stream.
That’s it! For now, you’re off the hook and won’t have to read anymore Google+ tips & tricks articles for a while. Now, you should be able to navigate and fully enjoy the social network known as Google+.
