  • Google+ share link

    Sharing content is the lifeblood of any social network.

    Here's the view a Google+ user gets, with options to share links, photos, videos and location. Google+ differs from Facebook with its Circles layer, meaning you must specify who exactly you are sharing a post with. The system defaults to the last combination of people or Circles you shared with to save time, or you can add different people or Circles.

    New Google+ users will quickly find themselves bombarded with notification emails, or SMS if they add a mobile number, such as when another user adds them to a Circle or comments on one of their posts. The deluge comes because the settings check every notification option apart from geolocation by default.
