|Fashion Streams : Plus One And The Stream For the Fashion Industry|
Welcome to the Fashion Streams website. When we reference, "fashion streams" we are primarily talking about the Stream system from the Google+ project and how it is relevant to the fashion industry. If you are familiar with Facebook, you may find similarity between what they currently reference as your "wall". The "Stream" area on Google allows you to place comments, photos, videos, etc. into a convenient location for all to see. In addition, others can add to the stream in a similar way that members on Facebook can add to a news feed or wall.
Another website that offers similar features is the Fashion Industry Network. FIN (Fashion Industry Network) is specific for the clothing and textile industry, in contrast to Google and Facebook that allow members to be from any industry.
Please read below to learn more about the Google+Project as it relates to Streams.
Update January 2019: Google has CLOSED the Google+ social network to the public. Learn why Google+ closed on the Fashion Blog.
We have removed most of the links from below because they are no longer active pages at Google. Below is for historical reference regarding the failed Google+ social network project.
The purpose of below is to provide a place for members of the fashion industry to learn about the stream from the Google+ Project.
First, let's figure out the answer to the questions, "What is a stream?". And no, this is not regarding a river or brook with running water.
Brief Summary that we found for you on the Google site:
"When you first sign in to Google+, you're taken to the stream and shown stuff that all your circles have shared with you. This could be content from people who've shared with you specifically, shared with a circle (or extended circle) you're in, or shared publicly."
Here are a few tips that may help you better understand the system:
When learning about the system, it would be a good idea to develop an understanding of the page layout. As of July 2011, the Stream was set up in three primary sections. A left hand column, center column and right hand column. This layout may change, but using this example will help you get a feel for learning about page layout.
Main Stream Column (Center)
It is important to note that the above details of the stream system is time sensitive. You should check directly with Google to learn the most current information about their program. You can learn more about the Stream at the following support page.
In regard to "Fashion", we feel that the Stream from Google will provide the fashion industry with a another good resource to stay in communication with one another. As we learn more about how the Stream is properly utilized, we will try to add the information to this website to keep you informed. Hopefully, we can use this site to make it easier for members of the fashion industry to find each other and communicate via Circles, Streams, Hangouts, Huddles, Sparks and other Google+1 features.
