Go to your profile's About tab, click on the Edit under the box that displays your circles and uncheck the "Show people who have added me to circles".

To change who can see the people in circles, click on the Edit under the Circles box.

If you wish to hide who follows you, uncheck the "Show people who have added you to circles".  

You can also customize the view, if you wish to display none, all your circles YOU follow on your profile or just a part of them.

"Periscope is Twitter's new live-streaming video app, not to be confused with the recently launched Meerkat, also a live-streaming app. It allows you to watch and broadcast live video from all across the globe, meaning you could switch from watching a peaceful wander across the beaches of Cornwall before switching to a protest in Egypt.

One of the key differences between the two is that Periscope saves the video streams once you are finished, so that anyone can view them for up to 24 hours; Meerkat's live video disappears once you choose to end the broadcast.

Both Meerkat and Periscope are pre-dated by other attempts at live-streaming apps, all of which fell by the wayside. But now, with more open Wi-Fi networks and faster 4G mobile networks than ever before, live streaming looks set to become as regular a part of our lives as Googling and Snapchatting..."

+The Lady from Uncle tells us how it goes:

"You now simply enter the information, agree to the terms which you have read and understood and pick a type of Google+ product from the two types available and Bob's your uncle. Easy. Until you realise that you don't get to pick a custom URL anymore... :O

Because THAT is a topic for another video, MWUAHAHAHA!"

The app is the latest addition to Instagram’s focus on visual storytelling.

Interesting Social Media testing post from +Buffer

"Some notes about testing:

We wrote at length about some of the best practices for A/B testing as well as some of our favorite A/B tests that we’ve tried on the Buffer blog and the Buffer social accounts (testing headlines is one of our favorites).

Here’s a brief summary of a few questions we like to ask ourselves when testing:

- Which one thing will you be testing?
- What metric will be my best measurement of success?
- Do I have enough data to assume this result will be true and repeatable for everyone?

"Hashtag: a word or phrase preceded by a hash sign (#), used on social media sites such as Twitter to identify messages on a specific topic."

You can click on them (when blue) and they will take you straight to the "Explore" tab, showing posts with the hashtag in question.

Using Google+ own search for a certain topic can be done with or without the # and a keyword: You get slightly different results with either method, I've noticed.

Using hashes is a good way to get your posts noticed by the public in search, not just in photo themes but on any topic, works also inside Communities. 

Of course getting the most out of hashes means posting in Public or public communities, otherwise only those with whom the post was shared can see the results (members in your circles or private communities).

You can also use your own unique hashtag (like my #Jaanatip or the more public #Plushelp ) and find them later. You may also share posts only to yourself or your own private community and easily find the posts in the Google+ search. 

Hashtags don't work on Google+ comments very well: They are clickable but don't come up in the search.

Remember: Your public posts show also in the streams of all who have you in their circles, depending on their settings. No need to post limited unless you really don't want anyone not in your circles or  outside Google+ to see your content.

Public = Everyone

- who has circled you, looks at your profile, stumbles upon your content in Google+ search or elsewhere...  Even if you have blocked someone they still can see your public posts when they log out of Google+, use the Chrome Incognito mode or use a business Page to check your profile.

Beware of spamming

If you tick the Send also email to -box when sharing to Circles then your post is pushed to those people you are sharing the post with. This is very close to spamming, so be careful. Read more about this feature in the linked article.

Sharing in private or to circles

When you share something, you can identify exactly who you want to send that content to by specifying specific circles or people.

You can also choose to share with your extended circles or share publicly OR share to a Community. The people in your Communities won't be able to see your posts to circles unless they belong to those. The Community posts will show up in your own profile unless you hide them from the Settings; The private groups' posts are only visible to the members in those Communities.

Posting in Public

When you post publicly, anyone can see your posts when visiting your profile.  Any people or pages who've added you to one of their circles will see your update in their stream unless the circle you're in is muted, in which case they have to visit that circle's stream or your profile to see what you post about. 

The circlers have control over how much they see from any given circle by adjusting the visibility in the Circle stream.

Visibility of your posts

Your posts will be displayed on the Posts tab of your profile and are visible to anyone who you have granted the access to see them (Persons, circles, extended circles, Communities or public). If you share a post to your Private community, only you can see that post in your stream / profile. 

If someone else shares a limited (private message) post with you, that cannot be reshared in public.

Public posts may appear in search results. If your public post is very popular then it may appear on the What's Hot stream. Then anyone who has not muted that stream may see it in their Home stream.

"Even if you're not looking for a new social network, that little red logo for Google+ does a lot of things for you.

You use it to log into websites without filling out the same 20 questions every time you want to comment on a blog. It unifies your experience across the Google platform, from commenting on YouTube videos to leaving a bad review on the Play Store or Google Maps to bringing in results from your circles whenever you do a Google web search.

"Short but intense, the bright, warm, lush Finnish summer arrives every year like a miracle after the long period of darkness and cold.

Summer is a natural phenomenon, yet it is also a state of mind: The world is again full of possibilities, joys and pleasures. The change is dramatic. Mother Nature, who so recently lay dormant and frozen under a blanket of snow, bursts into wild blossom as summer arrives.

The onset of summer is also reflected in people. They can finally cast off their heavy winter clothes. Shoulders long hunched together against icy winds can finally relax; steps become lighter and faces brighter.

The Finns make the most of their summer..."

"Last week was the annual pilgrimage to SXSW Interactive in Austin, Texas. Increasingly, SXSW is attracting big brands as a marketing venue to influencers (this year, even McDonalds has a presence) and as part of the search of the next new thing.

Famously the launchpad for Twitter in 2007 and Foursquare in 2009, this year SXSW had everyone talking about Meerkat, a live-streaming app. Not to mention the robot petting zoo, drones, virtual reality, and wearables of all types.

It’s important for marketers to remember that it’s not the tech that’s cool; it’s what’s enabled by the tech. It’s tempting for marketers to get so excited about technology that they lose all sense of perspective..."

Own a camera or a mobile device with a decent camera?
That's all you'll need to create your own stock photos.

Think sharing no matter where you go: I took this pic in a supermarket with my phone.
Not in a tulip field. :-)

Could've fooled many?

Keep your eyes open and your camera ready.
