Google+: An infographic to ease your privacy-concerned mind

Google+: An infographic to ease your privacy-concerned mind

Summary: Worried about Google+ and privacy? The Super Group Network serves up a fresh plate of privacy in the form of an infographic explaining some of the features that will help you understand your options.

SHARE:

In a very short amount of time Google+ has reached 10+ million users. While the fast growth I believe is mostly due to the fact that they host email for several million users, many people have also created their first Google account just to try out Google+.

Facebook's bane of its PR existence has been privacy and security. Google+ plus allows more control in many cases regarding who can see what, however, being that it's a new social network for us to get used to, it's hard to know right off the bat where to go to put all of your privacy controls in place. Below is a little ditty pulled from the Super Group Network explaining and/or reiterating some features, tips & tricks for those new to Google+.

Topics: Apps, Google, Social Enterprise

    #5 sounds like entertainment just waiting to happen...
    poor design.

    • ...what would be better?

      @rgcustomer@...
      For all you say it's poor design, what would good design look like? Forcing you to pick every single time?
      The shear inconvenience of that would drive most right back to facebook.

      ...it's like Winston Churchill's take on democracy; "it's the worst kind of government, except every other one we've tried."

      It actually makes sense to do it that way, so that you don't have to constantly remember who to send to, but it could obviously lead to unforeseen consequences. The thing is, that's a better outcome than the Facebook model, where all your posts go to [i]all your friends[/i] by default.

    Not a bad infographic in my opinion. It's a little sparse on details on how to do this stuff, but it gets the points you need to be concerned about well enough.

    At least in #5 it WARNS you of that 'feature' that some might want to call a 'bug'.

      If enough people find it to be a 'bug' then Google might hear enough cry and fix it so it's not so 'helpful'...or at least reminds you to check the setting.

    The advice in the poster is fine for a recluse who doesn't want contact with anyone not already an acquaintance (in which case stay on Facebook and set the privacy settings there appropriately), but if one is on Google+ to meet like minded people one does not already know and to widen one's circle of influence taking these privacy measures will defeat those purposes.

      @shoshndavid@... Excellent point. To that end, I've always found it funny when people join a 'social network' with the goal of figuring out how they can be as socially elusive as possible....
