As I hope you are aware I have a Gurteen Knowledge Community discussion forum on LinkedIn that now has over 3,500 members and is very active.

Earlier this month Google+ rolled out a new feature called Google+ Communities, which is similar to Facebook Groups. Google+ allows you to create public or private communities.

Up until now I have not been a big user of Google+ but the communities might just make all the difference and so I have created a Google+ Gurteen Knowledge Community.

I am not too sure how this will develop given the active LinkedIn forum but let's see. I much prefer the implementation of the Google+ communities to the LinkedIn Groups as they are easier to use and more functional. There is also not the annoying Linkedin limit where you can not be a member of more than 50 groups.

Incidentally, there seem to be a number of interesting communities emerging on Google+. This one on Conversation I particularly like.

You may recall that I am getting married on 27 December to Leni so this Christmas is going to be a very special one for me and my family. Here's wishing you a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year too :-)

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
