APOLOGIES
I have been over zealous with political comment lately so have now accepted the offer to assemble and write for two blogs on the WatchingUK website. The "Good News" blog is for items where we have benefited from the Brexit referendum vote and the "Bad News" blog is where others have tried to damage our chances of leaving the EU.

Ampers prefers Google Plus: Here are eight Quick Tips and Tricks

Getting started with Google's new social networking service? We have a few quick tips to get you oriented.

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.
Tweak your email notification options. By default, Google Plus will spam your Gmail account with notifications for practically anything involving your new account.

You can go to the Google Account options to uncheck all of the ones you don't want to get, thereby reducing your Gmail traffic considerably.


Google Plus profile sharing settings. Change your profile's field-sharing settings.

Your Google Account has certain basic fields that it can share with anyone--but you don't have to go along with maximum sharing.

Open your Google Account Profile and privacy settings, click Edit visibility on profile, and then click the individual profile fields and determine how public you want to make them.

Take a look at the other six tips.
