Your Hover Card is your Google+ networking and branding tool. To make a terrific one, you’ll need the how-tos, tips and tricks I share in this video.

Your HoverCard is created from your G+ Profile and it shows up in at least 25 places on Google platforms, from email to YouTube to your Google+ Communities.

Your HoverCard will be seen when anyone hovers over your name on:
• Your posts on Google+
• Every comment you make on Google+, YouTube, Blogger and more
• Lists of people and recommendations from Google
• Your +1 mentions
• Your own posts, when someone hovers over your name
• Your comments on Events
• Community member lists
• Hangouts on Air (attendees and filmstrip participants card pops up when you mouse over the name)

To make your HoverCard, go to the drop down menu on the left side of your GooglePlus homepage. Click on profile, then about. Locate “Story” and click on “Edit”

Create a descriptive TAGLINE of approximately 45-50 characters.

Watch the video for additional tips and tricks.

Nobody knows why the tagline doesn’t show up in your Google+ profile, or why your education doesn’t show up on your Hover Card. You’ll have to ask Google to explain that. :)

IMPORTANT: Don’t worry. You can’t break anything by experimenting. You can always make additional changes. Now go get started on your Google+ Hover Card!
