Being an early adopter of Google+, I pretty much learned how to use certain features by simply “clicking” all over the place and see what happens, lol. As new features are being added nearly everyday, it is very easy to loose track of them, and although, you may think that you already have a good grasp of all of Google Plus’s features, you might want to think again :).
From circles, to sparks, to hangouts, to photos, to plugins, there are already countless guides and tutorials on how to best use Google Plus network. Things you can do in your stream, cool and creative ways to feature photos, slides, videos, and just about anything else, can make you wonder if you do really know enough about G+.
That said and to make things a bit easier for you, here are some cool guides and tutorials that I have come across since Google Plus’s inception. Take your time and read as much as you can. You don’t have to digest this all in one time. Bookmark this page and come as often as you can, as I will be updating this post regularly.
