Google+ Enochian Magick Community

If you're interested in Enochian resources and discussions and spend time on Google+ I hereby invite you to join my new Enochian Magick community. The community can be found here. It's public so anyone can join, and I am in the process of putting together a solid collection of Enochian links and materials for reference and discussion.

I've been doing more on Google+ lately because Facebook is becoming both more annoying and less useful. With the introduction of the "promote" feature, one of the key advantages of promoting books or blog posts or whatever over there is now gone. In order to make money off this new feature - which actually sends a post to your whole friends list for a fee - they have by necessity had to limit the reach of free postings to a small subset of your full list. The biggest advantage of Facebook used to be that you could easily reach tons of people for free, and apparently now that's gone. The annoyance factor is more subjective, but let's just say I'm not all that interested in what my friends have for dinner or what games they play.

Google+, at least for now, has a couple of advantages in terms of reaching people. First of all, the level of traffic there is simply not as high so whatever you post is more likely to be noticed, and second of all, as far as I know there are no limits to how many people you can reach. Now that all may change soon enough, especially if Google decides they want to try and cash in on circles just like Facebook does with friend lists. But from what I've seen there's been a substantial backlash to "paid promote," and if Google can avoid that trap I suspect that it stands to gain a lot more active members.

At any rate, there are a couple of Enochian groups over on Facebook, one of which has more than 800 members. However, on Google+ I discovered that the largest occult community there was a general forum with 60 members. Furthermore, there was no Enochian magick community to speak of! Since such a thing clearly will not do I created one, and have built up a membership of 40 after only a couple days of invites. I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but remember, the largest occult group on there had a membership of 60. If things keep going like they're going Enochian Magick could be the biggest in a matter of a week or so.
