Feature highlights

  • Google+ Profiles: Create a profile with information about yourself. For example, you can add information about your classes, campus activities or groups, projects and expertise. You can choose which information is visible to others inside or outside TCD. The only exception is your name, which is always publicly visible. Learn more about Google+ Profiles.
  • Circles: Share information with specific people by organising your contacts into circles. For example, create circles for friends, classmates, courses, projects or special-interest groups on campus. Learn more about circles.
  • Hangouts: Connect and communicate in multi-way video rooms called hangouts. Hangouts provide screen sharing and integrate with Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides for collaborative editing. When you start or join your first hangout, you’ll be prompted to install the Google Voice and Video Chat plug-in for your web browser. You’ll also need to connect a webcam and use a computer microphone (preferably a headset). Learn more about hangouts.
  • Picasa Web Albums: Because Google+ uses Picasa Web Albums for photo sharing, we’ve also turned on this service for your Google Apps account. When you share photos, they’re stored in Picasa Web Albums, which you can access at picasaweb.google.com
  • Mobile access: You can use Google+ on mobile devices, using either a native app or a mobile web browser. Learn more

Important reminder

  • Because you’re signing up for Google+ with your @tcd.ie email address the College’s Policies, in particular the Social Networking and Social Media Policy, apply to Google+ usage.
