Will you ever settle for a Fizzy soda when you can relish a Cocktail with Honey, milk,cream and a never ending list of additives ?
Google’s latest Cocktail “Google plus” has got many surprises than we can wish for. Their grand success is mainly because of their ability to integrate their available resources into the Social media wheel. They have made socializing very easy and one such feature is the ability to Share your thoughts through SMS to a Circle or just an Individual.
Is it the same old way of sharing through SMS? Absolutely NOT!!
Here are a few Xtras that you can do using this SMS feature
First you need to register yourself to enable this feature (This is covered in later on… First lets look at the new features)
1.You can share your updates with a select circle alone
2.Can i share them with Extended circles? Yes you can
3.Can i share some thing to the whole world? Yes (they can even be made visible in Google search!!!)
4.Share your update with just your beloved one.
How to register ?
Once you log in your account Click on the Settings Icon on your Screen’s top Left Corner
Next step will be adding your Phone Number.
Now you can add your Mobile Number (Unfortunately this facility is as of now available to Indian and U.S users only) . Once you receive your verification code you can verify your ownership over the Number
Now you are almost Done ..
Now Google plus adds an extra feature of “Security pin” which will be your key to get your Posts published to the Google circles. For example if you set the code to 123 then your SMS should be like
123 Hi iam now goin to SMS to my G+ circle
Remember this is an Optional feature.
How to make the update reach your Desired Circle/Circles?
Compose your SMS from the number you registered in the previous step and send it to 9222222222
