Here's a list of reasons to be sure you have a good photo in your G+ profile which will accompany a wide range of information about your activity here.

I've been using my dog, Benny, as a test account, and here's what accompanied an email that came from him today to my gmail account. It includes:
- his most recent Google+ post,
- a link to Pawfun Blog, the source of the post,
- click to add him to my G+ circles,
- click the camera to start a video call with him,
- +1 his post, email him,
- click the dropdown menu to see his most recent emails to me,

- which of his circles he shared the post with, and when
So clearly, your Google+ content plays a huge role in your online presence. Make sure you're making every post count.
VIDEO - Beyond Social Media Show #37 -Coca-Cola’s Social Media Guard, AT&T’s Home Security & A Load Of Crap http://beyondsocialmediashow.com/coca-colas-social-media-guard-atts-home-security-a-load-of-crap/270
Ready for a custom background for your Hangouts and YouTube videos? http://wp.me/P4buDb-183
Everyone is doing shows via Hangouts and making videos for YouTube, but most of them look awful because of messy backgrounds.
I did a lot of research before I bought mine and learned that there are many that are cheaper. But those are made of flimsy materials that curl, crinkle and tear easily.
The one I use http://wp.me/P4buDb-183 is made of heavy duty material and it rolls down easily into the cassette which then fits into a carrying case about the size of a tripod case.
I live in a small NYC space and can't keep the background up all the time, so the roll down solution is great.
Take a look and see what you think. I'm on a crusade to banish cluttered, ugly backgrounds. :)

I've been helping brands incorporate new media into their marketing since 1995.
Currently, I'm CEO of Maximum-Plus.com which uses Google+ to create online events and train educators, brands and associations on how to use the platform I think is the biggest advance in online communications since the interactive website
I've been blogging since 2002 at What's Next Blog, http://whatsnextblog.com and I also write for AdAge Digital Next, Social Media Today and others. On Twitter, I'm @whatsnext
I co-host the weekly 1/2 hour HOA Beyond Social Media Show
I'm looking forward to meeting and learning with all of you.
Today's pitch from hell: in reverse chronological order. The essence of sloppy marketing:
Today: my response:
apparently you know nothing about me or my sites and you don't want to spend 3 seconds doing the research.
I was passed your details from my colleague Sandra to discuss the opportunity to work together in more detail.
Are you able to send across a list of sites you have available?

Monday, July 14:
Just wanted to ping you a quick message to see if you are open to working with some of our clients?
> Generally they like to either produce some content for you or pay you to produce some content for them on your site. They are very keen to work with good quality sites like yours and would love to explore ways that we can start that.
> Can you let me know if you would be open to: -
> Taking some content from us
> Writing a post for us
> Talking about our client on social media
> If you are open to that then what sort of arrangement would suit you? We are very keen to work with you and hope we can find a way to work together.
> Let me know!

Edelman PR goofed, big-time with a post that explains how to "join the national conversation" about Robin WIlliams' tragic death.
Translation to plain English, via Gawker: how to get publicity from a celebrity suicide.
Edelman had to apologize.
Happy Caturday to all from me and Noni Kitty Ochman aka The Nonster, here in a sweet moment when he isn't walking on my head.
That's Benny Bix Ochman Labradoodle - the dog with better Google juice than most companies.
