Google Plus communities

The goal of this assignment is to familiarize you with Google Plus communities and Internet communities in general.

I have created a CIS 275 community for this semester.

Join the Community and turn notifications on.

Click "see all" members (lower left) and print and turn in the Community page being sure to show both your photo and the indication that notifications are turned on -- circle or underline your photo.

Play around for a while -- be sure you know how to post comments, search through past posts, etc.

Write a post introducing yourself to the community. Be sure to put it in the "Member introduction" category.

Print and turn in a screen shot showing your member introduction.

Find another community on a topic you are interested in and join that.

Print your membership picture and state why you chose that community to turn in.

Think about what ways we might use our class community. What might we use it for? Print your suggestions to turn in.
