I've always found Google+ to be a great social media tool. To me it is a community of people who want to learn and share regardless if they actually know the people they are interacting with.

Google+ is a commonly overlooked social network. I’ve been charged with managing the social media for my company and I have noticed that not many people have taken to using Google+. I enjoy the ability to mark myself as an author for some of the blogs I write for and the clean design of the network. However, I will admit that I get discouraged when it comes to generating engagement. While many people in my network have Google accounts, very few see the value in this particular social network.

Timothy, thanks for that post and the other great links. Lately I've become a bit frustrated with the direction LinkedIn is heading and I've been encouraging folks to take another look at G+ and have even suggested they consider Google Communities as an alternative to LinkedIn groups.
While I certainly don't advocate a complete withdrawal from LinkedIn, I don't think it's wise for any company or individual to keep all of their eggs in one basket.
I think one of the first aspects of G+ that must be mastered is the use of circles to sort contacts. There are some real advantages to this unique system for targeting posts to specific contact groups.
Circles also help control the incoming tide of information. New G+ users often feel overwhelmed by the information chaos after they begin to follow others, and using circles can slice that raging torrent into quiet streams.
I've created a LinkedIn ex-pat group on G+ and have shared the link to this article there. I think it will be very helpful.
