How did you originally get invited to Google+?

Various friends and acquaintances invited me, and I didn’t notice until yesterday because I never check my gmail account. In fact I only got a gmail account 2 weeks ago, when I got a new Android phone. Clearly, I will be using it more now.

What benefits are you seeing from being in Google+?

Image quality is much better! I do a daily comic strip, Mimi & Eunice and Facebook would never create graphic thumbnails for links, because FB is biased against images it deems “too horizontal.” This is not a problem with Google+, which makes my comics much more shareable. That alone is worth the price of admission.

How does Google+ fit into your life or career?

The more culture is shared, the more value it has. As an artist I want my work shared as much as possible. Google+ makes sharing much easier.

A particularly interesting story or thoughts you may want to add regarding Google+

I used it as an example in this article I just wrote about anti-rivalry on my blog.

Where can I find more information about this fabulous woman?
