Since last Tuesday the test version of Google + was announced and released , one can say that the social network has experienced a turnaround and users have done everything possible to try this new Thing. Proof of this is that Google itself had to close invitation system due to the large demand, and was no longer possible to invite more people, but now it’s open for most of us.
The lucky ones who already have access can start tinkering with the network and apply a few tricks and shortcuts that are emerging. I decided to collect some different tricks, I hope you enjoy them.
Facebook in Google +
Have you tried Google + for days and more convincing than you Facebook? ¿ Would want to take the leap and leave the social network for the new proposed Google, but your friends are not yet in Google +?
No problem.Here is an an idea of what would not give up reading your feed on Facebook, because by this extension available for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome, we can make it appear Facebook in Google + . This is Google + Facebook , and install is as easy as visiting the page and press a Red button Get.
Once installed, and as you can see, will add a button to your Google + from that you will be able to see your Facebook Feed. Interesting, right?
Google + photography portfolio
This trick is ideal for photographers and designers. It’s about changing the look of our Google + to make it a photography portfolio, where we can show off out best of our photographs.
To do this just go to your profile and edit it. In the About Tab of Google + it let us add up to five different photographs. Simply select from your albums in Picasa that will automatically be linked to new social network, and added to the new collection of Scrapbook , visible on our profile.
If you want to customize it by adding or removing tabs, simply go to each and change, the visibility of these tabs can be set by the box Show this tab on my profile .
Color Bar Changer: Changes color of Google Plus bar to green, pink or blue.
j: In the stream, you can click ‘j’ to navigate down to the next item
k: Navigate up.
@ or +: mention someone in a post
q: While on the Home tab, press twice the q letter on the keyboard to search and add people to your chat list.
Space Bar: Scroll down stream.
Shift + Space Bar: Scroll up stream.

Enter: Hitting Enter when focused on a Post opens up the comment box.

Surely over the next few days, as more people will use Google + , we will see new tricks, and maybe even several of these changes. Google is now focused working on their new social Networking Hub.
