Ready for your close up: Profile Management

The profile editing section is the brains of the Google+’s privacy, providing a versatile interface that allows you to customize how you share each and every nugget of your information. Those who want to really be open can share personal details and their demographics with billions of Internet users. For the more reserved, there’s an option to share only certain information with certain groups of contacts. For the truly detached, there’s an option to make some information you share only visible to you.

If you’re nervous or unsure of how your profile will appear, click the “View profile as…” button to see just how any of your friends, regardless of what circle they’re in, can see your profile. If you’re worried about strangers finding your profile, scroll to the bottom of the Edit page to disable ‘search visibility,” blocking search engines from indexing your profile.
