If, like me, you’ve signed up to Google’s new social networking service Google+, you’ll be wondering how — if at all — it applies to your job; how it compares to existing social networking and/or micro-blogging services; and how best to use it.
As a result, and after a suggestion from Sara Hussein that I do so, I’ve put together this (hopefully useful) primer for journalists using, or interested in using, Google+. If there’s anything you think this primer is missing, drop me a line either via e-mail or in the comments below.
First off, if you have not yet received an invite to Google+ and would like one, let me know and I will send one to you.
And a little bit of self-pimping: You can find me on Google+ here.
NOTE: This post was updated on July 20, 2011 to incorporate remarks and concerns highlighted by the Committee to Project Journalists and the Future Journalism Project, both of which I missed in earlier readings.
