2016 WRITE: P2P: BLOG: Search makes Google Communities more useful

Search makes Google Communities more useful
Google+ communities now have a search bar.  Now you can find things there. 
Search bar in G+ communities
  • Did you notice that search bar in your G+ Communities?
  • Neither did I.  I don't know how long it has been there.
  • I used to consider G+ only of value for current info.
  • Anything over 3 days, and I won't be able to find it.
  • Now I can probably find something as long as I can remember where I saw it.

Building blog content

  • I usually remember to put things on my Google+ stream if I think they are important.
  • So I look there when I remember reading something and want to find it again.
  • I don't see an easy way to search the entire stream.  
  • But I can use search on page to search the more recent items.
  • Chrome search on page: Ctrl+f; search bar appears in upper right.
  • If i want to be sure I can find it again, I put it in one of my blog drafts.
  • Often it fits into one or more drafts, adding to the content there.
  • If not, I start a new draft and expect to find a place for it later.
