Turn Off New Feature in Google Plus–Don’t Want Gmail from Everyone

Google recently announced that Gmail users can email anyone on Google Plus without knowing your email address. I have my Inbox under complete control and definitely do not want to suffer from email overload. Here’s how to change this default. I turned it off, but you can choose any setting.

Conquer email overload and stay in control of your Inbox!

Unfollow Posts That Have Lots of Comments–Google Plus

If you’ve ever commented on a post on Google Plus that’s popular, you may want to stop the notices you receive every time someone else comments. You can do this by muting the post…similar to Facebook’s Unfollow. This graphic shows you how easy it is to do it.

So don’t hold back your comments for fear of being inundated with updates. Listen in for awhile, add your two cents, then mute if you need to.

How to AutoPost Your Blog to Other Social Media Accounts for Better Time Management

When I write a new blog post, I don’t want to have to visit all my other social media sites to post it. When I publish a new post, it automatically goes to Facebook (personal and business pages), LinkedIn, Twitter, and Google Plus. Here’s how I autopost (times vary and posting isn’t always immediate so be patient).

Facebook: From your main page, search for the app, Networked Blogs. When it comes up, register your blog and be sure to syndicate it for automatic publishing. Create auto updates to your personal and business pages.

Google Plus. The WordPress plugin, WPGPlus will autopost your new articles to your Google+ profile. After you install the plugin, go into Settings and add your Google Plus email address and password.

LinkedIn: Add the app, Blog Link (or WordPress if that’s your platform). They both link directly to your blog from LinkedIn. To find the app, click More, Other Applications, choose Blog Link or WordPress.

Twitter: If you use WordPress, try a plugin such as Tweetilyto automatically tweet your new posts. After you install the plugin, go into it’s settings and make desired changes (I changed the “Minimum age of post” to zero and the Random Time to 1.)

Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter auto updates: Twitterfeed.com is another option to autopost to Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. When you use a bit.ly link, you can track stats.

Take a few minutes now to set this up and save time later. If you have other ways to autopost, please leave a comment below.

PEACE.
