Setting up a G+ account

I have used collapsible links on this page to keep things tidy. Here are a couple of how to set up a G+ account. They are web pages you might find more useful than what is here: here or here.

You can tell if you have a G+ account and are signed in.

You may have a Google mail or gmail email address but you may not have set up a G+ account. They are two different things. Yeah I know it can be confusing.

If you don't have a G+ account here are the steps to follow.

Go to Google as if you are going to do a search. You should see a page something like this. The Sign in option may be Sign up.
