One of the most annoying things I ran into when I first started using G+ was that I didn’t know how to share stuff that my friends would be notified of. It was nice that on facebook, I could tag someone in a post and the would be notified of that post. Recently, I found out how to do this on G+!
- Click on the “Share what’s new” box to start sharing
- Click on “+ Add circles or people to share with…” to add friends/circles
- After choosing a circle/friend, they will show up as a blue box. Click on this blue box to display a box that will allow you to “Notify about this post”
- After you check that box and “Share” your post, your friend/circle that you checked that for should receive a notification about your post!
