10 reasons why you should get a Gmail or Google account


If you haven’t gotten a Gmail or Google account you should rush and get one ASAP. A Gmail account will give you access to many services and applications that Google offers. I was one day just like you, with only a Yahoo account, am not trying to blow the trumpet for Google because all of you use it on a daily basis to do searches on almost everything. Some very weird search phrases. When they say you can find almost everything you imagine of in the internet. I believe its very much possible.
Besides using Google for such I will show you some of the major useful services that you can use to make use of your Google account some that you know and some that you never knew.

1.Gmail
Gmail is email service for Google for sending and receiving mails. When you sign up for a Gmail account you get access to almost all Google services. So these should be your first step.



2.Gtalk
Free service for chatting with your friends on you Gmail friend list. You can download the PC version to just like the Yahoo messenger. The best part about Gtalk is that you can chat and send SMS for free to mobile numbers of your contacts.


3.Google reader
Google reader is an RSS feed services that delivers feeds from websites and blogs that you follow. Unfortunately Google is facing off the service; I wish I never included it here because am also going to feel the loss. You can read blog posts on Google reader on updates on websites that you follow without leaving the page.


4.Google drive
Google’s platform for sharing and storing documents. Upload and download files from anywhere by logging in to Google drive or installing the application on you computer. The best part of Google drive is when installed on a computer it synchronizes the documents on the Google drive folder on my documents and keeps all the documents up to date. Maximum storage offered is 5GB.

5.Blogger
Free blogging platform from Google. Best free blogging tools that you can get from the internet after wordpress. Blogger gives you the power to blog and produce content. I also use it and would recommend it. It’s very easy to set up and manage even for none tech savvy people. You can later purchase a private domain to gain more authority.


6.Google chrome
Ever wondered what the fastest browser is. Look no further. Google chrome is one of the fastest and trendiest browsers in the market. I have come to like the browser due to its chrome webstore applications that are accessible after logging in. It also has a variety of themes to enhance the look and feel as you browse the internet. You can add all your favorites applications and games on the homepage.e.g  Dropbox,Need for speed,twitter,Evernote,Facebook,tweetdeck,angry birds e.t.c

7.Google playstore
central market place for movies, music, magazines and Android applications. You can find all the latest applications being developed for android phones both free and retail.


8.Google docs
Google docs is an online version for accessing your documents. Mostly word processing documents excel worksheets or presentations on PowerPoint. it can be very frustrating when you want to open a Microsoft word document and the computer doesn't have it installed, Google doc will enable you to copy the documents and in some instances edit them. Also viewing the documents.



9.Google Picasa

is a Photo sharing service by Google that lets you upload, tag, and share photos. To access the service you need to have signed up with Google + for a free account. You can organize you photos in albums. It also gives you the option to edit the photos. Another advantage is you can link to the photos from your Picasa albums on blog posts or on your websites.
