    Google has recently launched its social network platform Google+ for users, which people in the world all think is a strong competitor to the present social network giant Facebook. Today, we are not going to talk about the advantages or disadvantages of Google+ and Facebook. We just take a review on how to begin Google+ when you have received the invitation from Google. The below is a slideshow made by Kristin Burnham, a PCWorld writer. Let’s just learn something from this.

    Google+ Tips for Beginners

    You just got your hands on a Google+ invite–but what next? Check out these 10 tips to get you started on Google’s new social network.

    The Background

    Google Plus (aka Google+), Google’s new social network, might offer the right mix of sharing and privacy to woo you away from your Facebook account. If you don’t know how to use it, though, it’s just a confusing mess of circles and contacts. So we’ve assembled a few tips to help you get started.

    Tip 1: Mute Annoying Post

    Mute Annoying Post

    A post you commented on could quickly become popular and suddenly you find responses to it are spiraling out of control. Fear not, Google+ has a “Mute” function. To stop receiving updates from a post and remove it from your stream, click the arrow at the top of the post, then select “Mute this post.” To un-mute it, follow the same steps and select “Undo mute.”

    Tip 2: Keyboard shortcuts

    Keyboard ShortcutsGoogle+ has designed a number of keyboard shortcuts that let you quickly maneuver through your Google+ stream, as well as format your posts using bold, italic and strikethrough fonts.

    Tip 3: How to Claim a Vanity URL

    Claim A Vanity URL

    Unlike Facebook, Google+ does not yet offer vanity URLs, or a shorter URL that you can use to point others to your profile. Enter gplus.to: a service that shortens your Google+ URL into something more simple.

    Visit the site, choose a shorter username. then copy and paste the string of numbers identifying your Google+ page. This will create your vanity URL: gplus.to/yourusername.

    Tip 4: Double-Check With Whom You’re Sharing

    Double Check with Who You're Sharing

    Sometimes it’s easy to forget who you’ve put into which Circles. If you ever have doubts when posting an update or sharing a link on Google+, click on the “Limited” link at the top. You’ll see photo icons for each of the people who will be able to view and share your post with their connections.

    Tip 5: Tag Someone in a Post
