Google+ for artists and illustrators
Pooja Srinivas’ live presentation for students of the Make Your Splashes – Make Your Marks! course streamed on this page on Thursday, August 16, 2012. We covered Google+ profile and pages (and why they’re so important), using Google+ circles, integrating Google+ with your other social media and networking, sharing artwork, photos and videos on Google+. There was also a bit of discussion on starting your own Google+ Hangouts and using Google+ apps and other Google tools, such as Google Drive in your freelance art and illustration promotion and work. Pooja also answered questions in the session.
