Awesome, easy to follow G+ overview. Nice work. I recently moved a good deal of my social activities (obviously most of my time is spent here though) to Google Plus. :)

Thank You I Love Google+.

Thanks so much! This was very beneficial. I have a Google + account but have not taken full advantage of all the benefits.

I try use my Google+ daily. I don't even have to look for contacts anymore. Provide some interest information and people will follow you. Just follow up. I like to use Pinterest and articles I think people will relate to.
you know I'm not the internet savvy, and have seen this google sign up, pop up every time I go on, thought nothing of it, just didn't realise how useful a tool it is until now

Wow, you have some cool thoughts here. I had not yet started to use Google+ beyond setting up my account. So now i am doing that. I signed up asap for gplusgotogal, and i can see there's a lot to learn from her. She is really oriented to using G+ for marketing success online. It will be fun to integrate her teaching with the wealth on WA.
Thank you for the tutorial, It's very concise and easy to understand. I'm sure it will help a lot of new members.
