If you like Facebook, you'll Love Google Circles!




I'm super excited about Google +

Would you like an Invitation?

I've heard a lot of buzz about Google's new social feature: Google Circles, and I instantly wanted to be a part of the small group lucky enough to get to test out this incredible new aspect that Google is rolling out.  I heard it was probably unlikely that I'd get an invitation for a while because they were just testing the interface with a small group.  Well, thanks to my techy friend, Karen, I feel so fortunate to have received an invite.  Karen, you never seem to surprise me with your cutting edge tech side and how great you are with tying in all of the fun tools into an authentic purpose for education that is pedagogically sound.  You're a wonderful mentor and teacher; thanks!

Because I firmly believe in sharing the wealth, I'd like to extend the generosity by inviting some of my virtual friends to join me on Google + and Google Circles.  I'm not sure how many I'll be able to accept; however, I'll certainly invite as many as Google allows me to.  To be fair, I'll start by inviting the first of my friends who leave a comment on this post.  I'll go down the list, in order, inviting as many as I can.

 All I ask, in return, is that you become a follower of this blog.  You can also subscribe via email and like us on Facebook and follow me on Twitter.  This way, we can stay connected through social media and share all of our great ideas in a larger network of teachers.  Also, I really believe in supporting other teacher bloggers - I'd really appreciate it if you'd do a brief post about this new feature on your site (please link it to this post on Kleinspiration), so that more of our virtual buddies can become a part of Google's new social networking feature... the more - the better!

So, if you'd like an invitation to this great new feature, please become a follower of my blog and leave a comment below: be sure to leave your email address so that I can invite you.  I look forward to connecting with you and seeing you 'in the circle.'

  42. Hi Erin,
    Thank you for your generous invitation. I am a teacher in Sydney and would be very happy to extend the invite to broaden the PLN further. I follow your blog and already follow you on twitter. I don't use Facebook a lot for education (as I use twitter a lot for PLN) but now I have started to see some teaching facebook groups which is inspiring me to use it more, but I will also follow you on Facebook.
    Thank you in advance. My email is acoure@gmail.com

  52. Wow you have alot of people. Never heard of this but I would love an invite. I couldn't find your follow button and the goggle icon only bookmarks (is that the same? usually there is a google follow button). If it comes back up or I missed it let me know and I will follow. I noticed alot have a gmail email. I have a google account but don't use an email service through them does that matter? If so I can go look to see if have one or how to get.
