Why do I like Google+ even in Medicine?

I’ve been playing around Google+ for the last couple of days and I have to admit it I really love it. Why? I’ve been using Facebook as a source of professional information but I have to add those people I like to follow as friends even if in most cases we are not friends. A few reasons why I use Google+ now for this purpose.

  • In Google+, we can easily create circles and start following people who we are not friends with.
  • It’s easy to determine who can see the information I share (everyone, only circles, only people in my contact list)
  • All Google tools are integrated.
  • I can search for people with specific words in their biographies through Google.
  • I can use Spark for following expressions.
  • It might make it simpler to create private circles so then medical communication can take place.
  • I can see the notifications even in GMail or GDocs.

This is a real professional networking site, while Facebook is just a playground for friends.

  1. He encontrado 2 ventajas para la docencia universitaria: (1) los círculos, con los cuales rápidamente se pueden formar grupos con los alumnos y (2) la integración con todas la herramientas de google.que nos permite tener trabajar desde la misma ventana.
