How to see what others can see on your Google+ page

One of the nice features of Google+ is the ability to see what other people see when they visit your page. It's called *View profile as: Public*

To get to it, select the little tiny arrow next to the words *View Profile as:* as select *Public* from the pulldown menu. By the way, if you don't see any posts, it's probably because you haven't posted anything publicly. And, in my opinion, your posts should all be public, because that's kind of the whole point of using something like Google+. You can be sharing with a very large audience, not just exchanging with friends like on Facebook.

So, if you're following something interesting, for example that great Phoenix, Arizona Historical Images page, and you want people who are viewing your page to see it, be sure to share it to your page. Just because you can see it, doesn't mean the public can. So share!

Oh, and by the way, if you see a page you like, click *Add to Circles* and select *Follow* in the drop-down menu. Don't be concerned with *Circles* or categories, or any of that stuff. If a page is public, you just get to see that page, but that page doesn't get to see your stuff. This isn't Facebook, where people have to ask permission, and be *friends*. This is an open place of sharing, a public place.
