You’ve been invited to Google+ , created your profile and added Mark Zuckerberg and Google CEO Larry Page to your circles. You love it, except you hate getting all of those annoying notification e-mails that fill up your Gmail. Here are a few steps, thanks to this Social Media Today post, to help you opt-out of some Google+ settings.
- E-mail notifications
A new window pops up that displays notification settings. Uncheck those that you wish not to be notified about, and the setting is automatically saved.
Your Gmail address is not exposed, but anyone on the web that finds your profile can send you an e-mail. If you don’t want e-mail from strangers, opt out by following these steps:
Repeat steps 1 and 2 from above.
Click on “Profile & Privacy.”
Click “Edit visibility on profile.”
Under your photo and above your circles information, there is the “send an e-mail” box with an icon next to it. Click on that icon.
- Photo GeoLocation
Photos taken with smartphones contain the geolocation information. If you don’t want this to be public, follow these steps:
Repeat steps 1 and 2 above, and scroll down on the e-mail notifications to Photos.
After opting out of these settings, you will surely have a better managed profile and will enjoy the Google+ world much more. If you need additional help with Google+ or any other social media site, connect with us at mRELEVANCE.
