Featured G+’er : Jett Galindo
How did you originally get invited to Google+?
I signed up for beta access quite early on. Fortunate enough to get an invite early. I always try to get myself updated with the latest Google services.
What benefits are you seeing from being in Google+?
Within 2 weeks of its debut, Google+ has already sparked user conversations that are more substantial than those on Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr.
And these Google+ conversations are not only within its ordinary users–you do get so much more opportunity to network and converse with people who are experts in various fields. Celebrities have already tapped into the highly successful Hangouts feature of G+. Photographers and artists are starting to get a wider audience just by sharing their artworks in G+.
The opportunity to reach out to people seems to have amplified without sacrificing substance here in Google+. Even at this early stage of G+ development, I’m already looking forward to conversing with people in G+ rather than on Facebook and Twitter
How does Google+ fit into your life or career?
I’m currently an international student taking up Music Production & Engineering here in Boston, MA. Google+ fits into my life and career path seamlessly. Filipinos are known to be very much attuned to social networking and my friends and relatives from back home were quick to jump in on the Google+ bandwagon. Conversations with friends and relatives have been more in-depth and satisfying within the Google+ interface.
As a budding sound engineer, I’m very much passionate about pursuing this career path and I’ve since begun using Google+ as a means to share my everyday experiences as a sound engineering student here in Berklee College of Music. It’s also offered me a more effective medium for communicating with fellow audiophiles and sound engineers who share the same passion as I have with music and audio. Aside from networking, I also end up using Google+ as another means for me to learn more about audio engineering by simply conversing to fellow audio engineers and musicians.
A particularly interesting story or thoughts you may want to add regarding Google+
During my 2nd day in Google+, I was able to join a Hangout conversation with Mr. Vic Gundotra (Google, VP Engineering). Who knew there’s such a thing as being starstruck in a video conference. It definitely was a sign of greater things to come for Google+.
