Google+ has been slowly but surely revealing itself as a great social network destination for Geeks and Techies. It has the right balance of media and text to make it easy to share videos, images, articles, and text updates without the noise of everyone and your Grandma(literally) being a part of it.
I’ve enjoyed hanging out in Google+ and I plan on spending more time there in the future. And it’s for that reason that I decided to add Google+ to my list of account roundups like I’ve already done with Twitter and Facebook.
The following list is one that I’ve personally curated from people, places, and communities that are currently active on Google+. These are the essential pages that you should add to your circles in order to stay up to speed on the latest in the tech world.
Before we begin, I’d be remiss if I didn’t do some shameless self-promotion and mention my own Google+ profile first: Matthew Rodela.
