Women of Google+ : Annie Lynsen
As we come across amazing women in Google+, we wanted to highlight some of them and give you the opportunity to find out how fabulous they are for yourself.
Featured G+’er : Annie Lynsen
What benefits are you seeing from being in Google+?
I really dig the ease with which I can segment messages for different audiences. I’ve always been manic about selecting specific groups to share with in Facebook, but their Android app doesn’t let you do that, and the feature is kind of hidden. With Google+, it’s right up front.
I also enjoy a less-restrictive character limit. To me, Google+ combines the best things about Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook into one interface.
How does Google+ fit into your life or career?
I work in social media, so knowing how Google+ works is important to my career development. It’s also handy for networking and sharing resources with people in similar positions.
A particularly interesting story or thoughts you may want to add regarding Google+
I love the “bragging rights” section of the “About” page. Here’s mine:
“I’m a member of Pirates for Sail, the house band of Piratz Tavern. I’ve toured the set of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and met all the major cast members. Jeri Ryan once posted a pic of me dressed as Seven of Nine on Twitter (and said I looked great). And I’m (very briefly) on the Britney Spears “Behind the Music” VH1 special.”
Where can I find more information about this fabulous woman?
I’m the Awesome Marketing Manager at Small Act (www.smallact.com – and yes, that’s what my business card says).
