Just started using Google+. I think there is a few kinks they need to work out to make it intuitive and easy to navigate. I have seen improvements over the past few weeks. The great thing about G+ is that they are incorporating other Google services and their search engine into this social media platform!

I have been G+ since just about the very beginning. I was an early beta tester and was pretty much blown away from the start. I had a lot of issues with how Facebook worked and the lack of privacy options. Facebook keeps getting worse and now I use just G+.

I am going to use the #Beekeeper tag to start a beekeeping circle. It's always fun to start a new circle of friends.

I signed up a little while ago, but am still trying to figure out all its features. Where do I put this #beekeeper tag?

@Fireguy
I added you to my beekeper circle. I have not had much luck finding anyone else. I tried the #beekeeper tag but there must not be many using it. The privacy features I love so much may also prevent us from finding each other. I won't be able to find your beekeeping posts unless you make them public unless I am already in one of your circles.

For anyone who would like to add me you can find me here: (Well this is sad. I am too new here to post a link. Maybe if Fireguy circles me you can find me through him.)

I would really like beemaster to start a G+ page for those of us who don't use facebook.

I updated my google+ profile, etc, but I don't know where to use the #beekeeper.   Help appreciated. 

This should take you to my profile.  In theory.

That link seems to bring up a blank page,  but https://plus.google.com/u/0/107432379312624796207/about  seems to work.

Thanks for the fix!   Still figuring Google + out.

I figured out the #beekeeper tag! It works just like with Twitter.

When you write a post about beekeeping, just add #beekeeper to the end of the post.

When you want to search for beekeeping, go to the top of your home page and enter #beekeeping into the search box. Posts about beekeeping will be shown on your screen.

I originally thought that I could add the #beekeeping tag to my profile, but it doesn't look like Google+ works that way.

Great, thanks for filling us in on #beekeeper.  I'll start using it.

Thank you, Jeanette!    I kept thinking I should add it in the profile, somewhere.    This is very helpful.

Yep we are using for the blog and podcast.  Its pretty good, some good communities on their.

I like the fact that at the moment you don't need to pay to reach all your friends or followers, so it is helping to get us more traffic to our articles.

See ya...Gary
