The Digital Reader is now on Google Plus

This is just a quick note to let my readers know that I have succumbed to the Google. I now have an account on Google+, which you can find here.

I know that I'm probably the last person you'd expect to join Google+, given how much I have foamed at the mouth, but let me share the 2 words that changed my mind:

Google Authorship.

I have been told by a number of people that not setting up a Google+ account can negatively affect my blog's search result listings.  I don't know for a fact whether this is true, but I've read it from enough different sources that I have to take it seriously.

    I am not a particularly prolific blogger, but I have been musing aloud about how social media has been trying to co-opt content producers. http://www.imaginaryplanet.net/weblogs/idiotprogrammer/2014/01/sucking-up-bloggers-into-the-social-media-tractor-beam-and-trying-to-break-free/
