Women of Google+ : Jessica P. Wallin
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 : Jessica P. Wallin
How did you originally get invited to Google+?
I was invited to Google+ through an ex-boss on Facebook.
What benefits are you seeing from being in Google+?
I love Google+ because it allows me to keep organized. Like most women, I fancy myself to be multi-faceted, and Google+ lets me separate all of the different facets in a streamlined manner. Thanks to Circles, I am able to read what interests me at a particular time instead of trying to wade through all the noise of places like Facebook and Twitter.
How does Google+ fit into your life or career?
As a photographer, I have “met” lots of other photographers from all over the world on Google+. Every day I see photos that inspire me and learn from all the varying techniques. I love that I can share things that only matter to certain people, instead of just blasting everyone with what I want to say. For instance, I share photos of local businesses with my hometown circle, reviews I write about beauty products with my lady circle, and thoughts on social media with my social media circle. I have become acquainted with people who do other things I’m interested in, like web developers, SEO experts, and other writers and reviewers. But G+ isn’t just about work for me; I can also talk with my friends, and I love that.
A particularly interesting story or thoughts you may want to add regarding Google+
I think that once the stigma is gone about Google+ being for nerds, more women will join. I don’t understand why there aren’t more women on here already; G+ seems to me like it was designed with women in mind. I love how easy it is to upload photos–drag and drop is so convenient! Women love to compartmentalize, and Google+ lets you do just that. I feel like it was made just for me, and hopefully more women will start to feel this way, too.
