Dear LJ friends,

It's time for LJ and I to part company.  This will be my last entry to show up on LJ.  It's been an amazing 12+ years but it is time to go elsewhere due to moving of the servers to Russia and their criminalization of LBGT materials.  I am exporting everything to Dreamwidth - you can find me over there under the same name.

I plan to post about once a month and I am definitely reading what you write.  Hope to see you there or on Facebook or even in "real life" one of these first days!  Au revoir!

Here's a very helpful Google doc all about Google +
with very easy to watch videos, and simple explanations, tips and terms etc.

A Mute button! This is something we've wanted on FB for ages.

You can shut off getting further comments on a post you comment on!

So go ahead and say "Congrats" then click on the little arrow to the right, and mute it. You won't see 65 other people saying the same.

YAY!

Ten thing I like about Google+

1. It's not Facebook
2. You can edit a status update after you post it
3. The photo editor built in
4. The mobile app lets you upload photos automatically to an unpublished file
5. You can upload photos easily in groups from your phone gallery
6. You can send a status update to anyone's email
7. You can have a conference chat
8. You can have people in more than one "group" circle
9. Links display area on your profile page
10. Cool button on profile "how would it look to..." so you can test privacy settings easily
11. Easy access from the toolbar on Google

Terms
Stream = newsfeed
Circles = groups of friends (people can be in more than one)
easy drag and drop to add people
Hang-outs = video conference chat
Huddles = group text messaging/chat
Sparks = interests groups that gives you stories, videos or photos
+1 = Like

Stream posting tips:
• _ italic text _ ➜ italic text
• * bold text * ➜ bold text
• - strikethrough text - ➜ strikethrough text
•@Alex Quinn or +Alex Quinn ➜ +Alex Quinn (press @ or + to link to a person in a post or comment)
• After you post, click the little dropdown arrow (▽) in the upper right of the post to disable comments or disable resharing (i.e., for things you don't want to spread beyond your specified audience).
• Press "k" or "j" to move up or down in the stream.
• Press Tab then Enter after writing a comment on a post to quickly submit it. (faster than clicking the Post Comment button every time)

FYI - LJ is having trouble sending email notifications when people comment on posts. As I understand it, they've been blacklisted as spammers by several big ISPs, like Yahoo and Comcast. And they've been working to undo that, but it takes time. It didn't hit me until yesterday.

But if you depend on email to let you know if people are commenting, you should check back on those posts, because that may be the only way you can tell for awhile.

I've been responding to people's comments, and hope you see them!
