He occasionally enlisted the help of the Baker Street Irregulars, the "unofficial force" that could "go everywhere, see everything, overhear everyone."
So too it would seem that the new Google+ Sherlock Holmes Community aims to have us do the very same: to share what you know and what you see about Sherlock Holmes - on the web, in books, on the screen - and create content and lively discussions. The Google+ platform is open to anyone with a Gmail account, and if you don't have one, it's free to create.
When you're there, you'll have the opportunity to share photos, videos and other links from the web, as well as create posts and discussions. In addition, you can create events, add them to your calendar and invite others - think of the possibilities when running Sherlock Holmes society events!
The Sherlock Holmes Community is divided into a number of categories by media type, interest, etc. and can accommodate just about anything that the average (or above-average!) Sherlockian throws at it.
If you're in doubt about how it can work, here's a brief overview video from Google:
It is a public group and all are encouraged to join and invite others. "The game is afoot!"
When you make purchases from the links we share, it provides us with a stream of revenue to help keep this site running. Thank you for your generosity.
