New York City By The Bay Message Board › Join the "NYers in SF" Google+ Community page!
San Francisco, CA
Greetings, New York City by the Bay:
Hello from one of your co-chairs. You're cordially invited to join this Google+ Community page I set up on Google+, called New Yorkers in San Francisco. Full disclosure: Okay, I work at Google. But I really do think this Community page could be a good forum and will help us connect with other ex-New Yorkers who aren't part of the group or Meetup. Plus there are some nifty features like Party Mode (which lets everyone post all their event photos to the same place) and Hangouts (group video chats). I'm still learning all the ins and outs of it (bear with me: I'm an editor, not an engineer), but it could be a fun tool for the group.
How to Join
The fine print is that you have to have a Gmail account.
Click here then click "Join Community." Then you may want to fill out your Google+ profile if you haven't already (email me directly if you have questions about that: email@example.com). More on Google+ Communities here.
You can toggle with the Notifications (if you don't want to get emails every time someone posts to the Community page): Just click on your name or photo in the upper right corner of your Gmail screen and select Privacy. Under Accounts select Google+. There are whole bunch of notification options there.
How to Post
There are a few ways to post. You can:
What to Post
Whatever floats your boat, as long as it's at least vaguely related to SF/CA/NY. Just a few ideas:
Note that when it comes to Meeetup ideas, logistical discussions, and things you want all members to see it would be best to use the Meetup discussion board Jeff just sent around, which is here.
Apologies if this all sounds like a G+ ad. Hoping this helps create a New York-y dialogue and that people find it useful.
p.s. Hope to see you at the happy hour tomorrow night (Thursday) at Cassanova, 6 to 8pm.
