How To Create a poll on Google+

1. Create a Post with your poll question.

To begin, you create a post with your poll question and share it with whoever you like.

2. Disable Comments

At this point, I’d suggest disabling comments to make the poll choices more visible when they are added. This is not necessary, but recommended.

3. Add your poll choices in the Comments

Next, you add your poll choices as separate comments on your post and let the voting begin. Basically you will use +1′s as votes, and whichever choice with the most +1′s is the winner.

4. Conclude the polling with a Comment

When you want to end the poll, its a good idea to add one final comment and perhaps some additional information, like declaring a winner, and/or stating next steps based on the results. Here’s an example of a completed poll from +Mike Elgan.

Overall, this is a simple and effective polling method for Google+.

How to Tag Someone In A Post

Tag Someone In A Post

In a comment box, type + or @ followed by the person's name. A box should appear containing the matching name (if the person exists). Note: Typing the name too fast may make the box disappear causing the mention attempt to fail. In the event this happens, backspace all the way back up to and including the + or @, and try to repeat the attempt again.

Once the name becomes a tab, you're done! Posting the comment will send a notification to the person that they were mentioned. The notification is sent regardless if a person mutes a thread.
If you want to prevent mentions from triggering, turn off the reshare option (but do not mention the person in the opening post since turning off reshare does not protect against mentions in the opening post).

Two Ways To Export Your Facebook Friends To Gmail

One advantage to export Facebook friends to Gmail is that you can manage them more easier, but Facebook doesn’t allow you to do that, for it wants to protect user privacy, which is bullshit.
Since you can view your friends’ email addresses, phone numbers, websites and any other information they share will you, to export the information is just an easier process than to write down them one by one, and what is more, it allows Yahoo to export your friends with their email addresses in deed.
Well, whether Facebook likes or not, there are two ways for you to export your Facebook friends to Gmail.
1. Yahoo Mail
Export Your Facebook Friends To Gmail with Yahoo
Just log in your Yahoo Mail, import Facebook friends, export them as a CSV file, and then import the CSV file to your Gmail account.
With this method, you can only export the names and email addresses of your Facebook Friends.
And if you don’t want to export any other contacts except your Facebook friends, you can create a new Yahoo account, or export and remove the exist contacts first.
2. Facebook Friend Exporter
Export Your Facebook Friends To Gmail with Facebook Friend Exporter
Facebook Friend Exporter is a Chrome browser extension, with which you can export names, email addresses, phone numbers and websites of your Facebook friends.
After installation, you will see an “Export friends!” button on your Facebook’s toolbar on the top, clicking the button, then you can follow the instruction and export your Facebook friends to Gmail directly, or you can download the CSV file and import it to your Gmail manually.
But every time you can only export about 30 friends and you have to change the Facebook language to English.
None of the above two methods is perfect, damn Facebook should offer an easier way for users to export their friends to Gmail as soon as possible.
