Yifat Cohen78,561*What if....* Google+ is not a social network at all - never intended to be a Facebook killer, nor a Twitter wanna-be and definitely not in a rush to keep up with everything else out there...? *What if....* Google+ is Google's way of analyzing our personal relationships across all their products (because relationships can't be faked) and use that knowledge to fuel services like Google Now, Nest, Home automation and Driveless cars...? *"So what the fuck is Google+ for anyway?"* @102034052532213921839 is an ex-Google employee who helped design the UX of Google+ before he left Google a year ago, and whose name came up again on the Plus stream when he shared his *Thoughts on Google+* asking [quote] "So what the fuck is Google+ for anyway?" and got the community talking. *SO LET'S -TALK- HANGOUT ABOUT IT.* Chris is very disappointed with Google+ because he expects better from Google. But maybe he's expecting the wrong things? @113117251731252114390 rebutted Chris' post and defended Google+ in a Google+ post that was shared 524 time and sparked conversations across the Plus (https://www.gplusgotogal.com/MikeElganRebuttal1)  Chris responded - https://www.gplusgotogal.com/ChrisMessinaRebutal And Mike claimed that Chris lost the argument because he didn't answer the main questions: "What site has 1) a better community; 2) better troll control; 3) better photo tools; 4) better integration with a leading wearables platform; 5) better conversations; 6) better monetization; 7) better search?" (https://www.gplusgotogal.com/MikeElganRebuttal2) Basically, comparing Google+ to Facebook again. (_sigh_) *IS CHRIS USING GOOGLE+ WRONG?* Chris, who was an integral part in the development of Google+ for 3.5 years was told by @107742059751171695340 that he was using Google+ wrong. He should have been talking and listening to Top Contributors (which Jaana is one) who have their ears to the ground: _"Which is the direction it's taking? That depends. Also on us, the users.  Google listens."_ (You should definitely read the comments on Jaana's post, where she and Chris get into an agreement - https://www.gplusgotogal.com/JaanaNyströmGooglePlus) *IS IT ABOUT THE SHARED INTEREST GRAPH?* Perhaps the best insight is that of @105103058358743760661 who read between Chris' lines and brought up the point of Big Data and information networks: [Google+] "should have been 1000% focused on helping people build a rich information network around the things we care most about - our interest graph - and then to use that interest graph to connect us with *new* people who share those interests with us - our "shared interest graph." And if it's about the interest graph, then who's better than @115620878851836664537 to remind us that that takes time: _ It requires building a bunch of things, integrating them and then waiting to see how people will use them and what the data will show you. This means that we have to wait to see some results (many of which will impact search) andGoogle Rebuttal - Chris Messina's Perspective.2014-12-11 19:00:00173

Included in the discussion will be opportunities we see (and are creating) for entrepreneurs in the G+ Community (and especially Ronnie's *Hangout Mastery Membership*). For example, one of these upcoming Events (on April 25-26) is a Mobile Hangout On Air called #razorfest  which will be held at Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville Arkansas - http://www.jimshankle.net/mhoa-razorfest.html. This is a big Event, initially created 10 years ago by _Champions for Kids_ and Sponsored by #kellogs   #walmart   #tysonfoods   #unilever  plus a number of other Walmart and Sam's Club Suppliers. We will attempt to further advance the technology and production capabilities that Ronnie and @110581056743381299062 pioneered at #sxsw2014  last month. Even more important, it will give us an opportunity to expose the capabilities of Google+ in Northwest Arkansas - _*"The world's largest concentration of Brands*_. While this Event is designed principally for students taking a Seminar on Entrepreneurialism, feel free to come join what should prove to be a different type HOA that deals with _"life applications and lessons learned"_ from 3 Google+ masters. *Links:* _Event_ - https://plus.google.com/events/cn6vs30l287loeaalp03bkut1r0 _Youtube_ - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbdLoqpq0mwG+ Opportunities for Entrepreneurs...JBU Seminar on Entrepreneurialism Presents "Hangouts, Helpouts, Hirls and Mobile Hangouts On Air"2014-04-11 22:00:0068

Join me & @115620878851836664537 in this insightful discussion. _What follows are some questions to ponder before the event:_ *➪ Are first impressions really that important now-a-days?* ➪ How does participating in a HOA help or possibly hurt your online efforts? ➪ What is the difference between online and 'offline' impressions? ➪ How does this all play into Search Results and Authority? ➪ What does the semantic web demand in terms of making a real impact? _Leave some of your thoughts and questions in the comments please.

If you are viewing on Mobile here is the link to the video to watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=if23ZsHfvp8 *If you will be a featured guest on someone's HOA Live Broadcast then this discussion is for you.* We'll cover the most common issues you'll run into and how to overcome them. We will also talk about what are the *top 9 things you can do to prepare* yourself to make the best possible impression on the viewing public. This HOA Event is aimed at the Google Plus Community called *Plus Your Business* http://goo.gl/qwIf4 but anyone interested in doing hangouts well is more than welcome to attend. One of the best ways to master the Google Plus Hangouts tool is to watch others use it and learn from what they do right and what they do wrong. The hangouts experts in this event have seen many shows and can tell you what works well and what does not. It is a good idea to be a part of other people's HOA shows before you host  your own, and one way to do that is to be a filmstrip guest. Learn what it takes to be a great guest & you will get invited into live shows again and again. Doing many shows will get you used to the HOA structure and ready to run your own or simply be the best guest you can be to make a great  impression. _Feel free to leave comments on what you think makes a good or bad HOA performance. We may use some of those examples in the show._ #HOAtips  #HangoutsOnAirTips  #GooglePlusTipsHow to Be a Great Hangout on Air Guest... You in the Filmstrip2013-06-20 20:00:00113

NASA2,457,914Having trouble watching the event? Try watching directly on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8LI5JiWEfs --------- Have you ever asked a question to someone in space? No? Well now’s your chance. In a first for the agency, NASA will host a Google+ Hangout live with the International Space Station on Feb. 22 from 10:30 a.m EST to 11:30 a.m. EST. Google+ Hangouts allow people to chat face-to-face while thousands more can tune in to watch the conversation live on Google+ or YouTube. This unique opportunity will connect you, our fans, with astronauts living and working on the orbiting laboratory 240 miles above the Earth. During the event, several video questions will be selected and answered by astronauts on the space station and on the ground. Additionally, NASA will ask real-time questions submitted by our followers on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. Unique and original questions are more likely to be selected. You can view the Hangout live on the NASA Google+ page or the NASA Television YouTube channel to watch the astronauts answer the questions. SUBMITTING REAL-TIME QUESTIONS To ask a real-time question during the event on Google+ or Twitter, please use the hashtag #askAstro. You can also post a comment on a thread on NASA’s Facebook page that will open for questions on the morning of the event. WATCHING THE GOOGLE+ HANGOUT To join the hangout, and for updates and opportunities to participate in upcoming hangouts, visit NASA's Google+ page at http://plus.google.com/+NASA. During the hangout, astronauts Kevin Ford, Chris Hadfield and Tom Marshburn will answer questions and provide insights about life aboard the station. Station crews conduct a variety of science experiments and perform station maintenance during their six-month stay on the outpost. Their life aboard the station in near-weightlessness requires unique approaches to everyday activities such as eating, sleeping and exercising.NASA Long-Distance Google+ Hangout to Connect with Space Station2013-02-22 16:30:008329

My dear +Google+ and +Bradley Horowitz

Now is the time to give us a glimpse of the Google+ future

A press release?

I'm tired of defending you guys / the platform everywhere in social media.
What will happen to Google+?  You can try and assure us in corporate jargon but it's not good enough.

I sent an S.O.S. via Twitter, too...

https://plus.google.com/+anilsabharwal/posts/cAYN5wJPcx7

If you’re still using Google+ Photos, now is a great time to make the switch. You may have seen a prompt in Google+ Photos on Android with a link to download the new Google Photos. Don’t worry, all your photos and videos will still be saved and available after you switch to the new, stand-alone Google Photos app. With the new app you’ll still be able to backup, edit, and share yourphotos a... more »

How to Collect a post

If you wish to add your own older posts to a Collection without resharing them as new posts and spamming your stream, here is what you can do:

There are two arrows at the bottom of a post.
The bigger one on the left reshares a post.
The smaller one on the right can reshare a post too but also moves a new (uncollected) post to a Collection you have created.

A post that has already been added to a Collection must be removed first if you don't wish to reshare it to another Collection and create a duplicate.

To remove a post from a Collection click on the top right menu dropdown and then click on "Remove post from Collection".

After this you can "collect" the post again from the top menu or from the small arrow at the bottom.

Of course, if you add someone else's post to a Collection, then you will get a new post appear on your profile and your followers stream.  You could uncheck the "People that have you in circles automatically follow this collection." from the Collection setting while you add more posts, that may help as the posts are visible only on your profile and for those who have clicked to Follow the Collection.

#GooglePlusLives     #GooglePlus  

I don't often share press articles about our products – they rarely seem to say much of use – but this was just such a good case of a journalist Getting It Right that I had to share. Google+ is very much alive, and our recent changes are focused on making it be the best product it can be for what it's best at: helping people meet people and have great conversations about things they're passionate about. 

One particularly noteworthy thing in this article is its discussion of the "majority illusion:" people tend to assume that their friends are typical of the wider world, but almost by definition they aren't – for one thing, they all have one uncommon attribute in common, which is being your friend in the first place. And since people don't choose their friends randomly from the entire spectrum of humanity, one's friends are always a distorted sample. 

So yes, we have here a tech press article which (correctly) uses an important result in cognitive psychology to explain why lots of tech press articles are nonsense.___Well folks:

Everyone in Twitter is busy sharing the negative articles about Google+, no-one has retweeted my Google+ positive Tweets...

Maybe they should look closer at home before jumping into conclusions?

Thanks for this, +Peggy K !

#Twitter     #SocialMedia     #GooglePlus     #EchoChamber  

Twitter is a ghost town (just like Google+)!

Even though Twitter is the darling of the tech press, it has a hard time attracting - and keeping - new users. And Twitter knows that in the long term it needs to change to attract the mass market.

“We have only reached early adopters and technology enthusiasts,” explained CFO Anthony Noto in an earnings call this week, “and we have not yet reached the next cohort of users known as the mass market.”

Of course, Twitter is not a ghost town for everyone. If the people you know and follow are active there it's a vibrant social network.

The same holds true for Google+. If you are expecting it to be like Facebook, with all your friends and family posting content, it may very well feel like a ghost town here.

As +Mike Elgan​​ points out in his latest column for eWeek, that perception colors the tech press's coverage of Google+:

The media in general, including the tech press, is obsessed with using Twitter. And that love of Twitter is often accompanied by a disdain for Google+, for whatever reason.

Most groups outside the media don't share that particular set of social media preferences. Yet the majority illusion convinces the press that "everybody uses Twitter" and that "nobody uses Google+." But what's true in the echo chamber is not true in the world.

For the general public who are not regular users of either Twitter or Google+, that sort of reporting influences their perception of both social networks.

Twitter is making major changes that they hope will make it easier for new users to understand what how it works and it's strengths.

Google+ has a similar challenge. The new Collections is a step towards making it easier for users to find interesting content to follow.

There are many users who have a Google+ profile created for Hangouts, or to share photos, or to comment on YouTube. As Google+ profiles are disentangled from those services, Google has an opportunity to convince such users that Google+ is worth using on it's own merits.

I am hoping Google+ is able to overcome the constant bad press and demonstrate what a great place it can be.

If you’ve been to a sauna in other countries, it’s nothing like that at all. After all, this is a SOW-na, not a SAW-na, if you really want to be authentic.
The Sauna culture is so entrenched into the Finnish mind that it’s almost impossible for them to imagine life without it. It’s not that the sauna is a luxury in Finland, far from it, it’s a necessity.

Indeed, it’s become the same for me in just two years..."

Everything in Its Right Place

It’s been a little more than a quarter since I took on leadership of a newly formed team, which we’ve christened SPS: Streams, Photos, and Sharing.

In that short time, I’ve had some time to reflect on the products we’ve built over the last few years, and also the opportunity to oversee the launch of our new Google Photos product. I’ve concluded that it’s time for a “pivot”... or more precisely time to talk more openly about a pivot that’s been underway for some time (and in fact is reflected in the name of the new team). We're going to continue focusing Google+ on helping users connect around the interest they love, and retire it as the mechanism by which people share and engage within other Google products.

Four years ago when we conceived of the “Google+ Project”, we made it clear that our goals were always two-fold: Google+ aspired to be both a “platform layer that unified Google’s sharing models”, and a product / stream / app in its own right.

This was a well-intentioned goal, but as realized it led to some product experiences that users sometimes found confusing. For instance, and perhaps most controversially, integration with YouTube implied that leaving a comment on YouTube (something users had obviously been doing successfully for years) suddenly and unexpectedly required “joining Google+.”

We decided it’s time to fix this, not only in YouTube, but across a user’s entire experience at Google. We want to formally retire the notion that a Google+ membership is required for anything at Google… other than using Google+ itself.  

Some of the consequences of this shift in thinking have already been deployed. Others we’re rolling out as fast as possible (e.g. the changes to YouTube we referenced today). And many more will roll out over the rest of the year.

What does this mean for Google+ the product? Relieved of the notion of integrating with every other product at Google, Google+ can now focus on doing what it’s already doing quite well: helping millions of users around the world connect around the interest they love. Aspects of the product that don’t serve this agenda have been, or will be, retired. But you’ll also see a slew of improvements that make this use case shine (like the recent launch of Collections - https://plus.google.com/collections/featured).

It’s been incredibly gratifying to see how this strategy has played out as realized in the recent Google Photos launch, a product which in many ways embodies and telegraphs the changes discussed above. Google Photos not only doesn’t require a Google+ account, but as much of the functionality as possible doesn’t even require an account at all. It was important to me that when we launched Google Photos, we stressed the product implements sharing by any means a user prefers… without compromise or agenda. This is the right thing for users and the feedback and usage has been extremely validating.

I’m excited to share this strategy with the world, excited about what it means for Google+, and most of all for all of Google’s users.___How can the "journalists" kill off Google+ based on this text?

A little bit of imagination and there you have it.  
Visit a market place, a beach, a harbour, a park, a supermarket...  Place unlikely objects in strange places and shoot.

I took almost 100 different pics with the help of this bouquet of roses which cost 4 Euros.  Snow gives a nice lively background. Cropping and editing will multiply the amount of usable images two times or more.

What is the difference between an opinion and a fact?

A snippet from this very intelligent article:

"There’s a common conception that an opinion cannot be wrong. My dad said it. Hell, everyone’s dad probably said it and in the strictest terms it is true. However, before you crouch behind your Shield of Opinion you need to ask yourself two questions.

1. Is this actually an opinion?

2. If it is an opinion how informed is it and why do I hold it?

I’ll help you with the first part. An opinion is a preference for or judgment of something.
My favorite color is black. I think mint tastes awful. Doctor Who is the best television show.

"It’s all too easy to imagine nature and technology as being engaged in a centuries-long boxing match, with the 21st delivering the knockout punch.

Sunsets obscured by selfies. Hundreds of thousands of tonnes of toxic ‘e-waste’ dumped in Ghanaian wetlands each year. Words such as 'acorn', 'adder' and 'willow' excised from the Oxford Junior Dictionary to make way for 'broadband', 'analogue', and 'cut and paste'.

I wanted to clarify a couple of points regarding yesterday’s announcement (https://goo.gl/TL0l6j) and provide some additional context:

1. The great photo and video sharing service that’s part of Google+ is unaffected. You can continue to post photos and videos, and your followers will be able to comment and +1 as before. No change.

2. All of the photos, videos, and albums you have already shared on Google+, including their posts, comments, and +1s are also unaffected. An easy way to find these is to visit the Photos tab of your Profile page.

3. The private photo management component of Google+, which includes backup, editing, creations, private album management (album management for shared content is still available on Google+), and sharing to other apps, is being replaced by Google Photos.

I sincerely appreciate for many of you #3 is still a hard pill to swallow. And I promise we don’t take decisions like this one lightly. The reality is that maintaining both Google+ Photos (the private photo management component of Google+) and Google Photos poses several challenges. Most notably, it is confusing to users why we have two offerings that virtually do the same thing, and it means our team needs to divide its focus rather than working on building a single, great user experience. 

We are working very hard to bring all the best features of Google+ Photos to Google Photos, and this focus will allow us to deliver even more features at a much faster pace.___

More about the Google Photos change:

Google+ Photos shutting down August 1 to make way for Google Photos

"If you’ve been using Google Photos in lieu of Google Plus Photos, you’re probably not alone. Today, Google announced it will begin shutting down Google Plus Photos on August 1.

The shutdown will hit Android first, then iOS and the Web “soon thereafter.” Google also notes users have been seeing prompts in Plus to switch to the new Google Photos service, so many have likely migrated or are using both.

This isn’t much of a surprise, though. At a small event after Google I/O this year, Google’s Vice President of Products Bradley Horowitz said its social arm was going through a “renaissance in thinking of what Plus is and for.” For Horowitz, Plus should be about connecting people with similar interests together, not a catch-all social service.

Google says those still using Google Plus Photos should download the Google Photos app soon “for uninterrupted access to all your photos, videos and albums.” If you fail to switch ahead of August 1, Google says you can find your photos and videos at its photos portal, and they’ll be available for export using Google Takeout."

Now you can search in Instagram on a computer, too

"Let’s face it, Instagram’s hub on the Web has traditionally kind of sucked. Thankfully, that’s finally starting to change. Recently, Instagram introduced a much easier-on-the-eyes design and started storing high-res images, and today it’s finally allowing you to search for images..."

Goodbye Google+ Photos, hello +Google Photos!

In May, we launched Google Photos as the home for all your photos and videos. With Google Photos you can store unlimited high quality photos and videos for free, find photos fast, and see them organized by what matters to you. Plus, you can bring moments to life and share anywhere with anyone.

In an effort to ensure everyone has the best photos experience we can deliver, on August 1st we’ll start to shut down Google+ Photos -- initially on Android, and soon thereafter on the Web and iOS.

If you’re still using Google+ Photos, now is a great time to make the switch. You may have seen a prompt in Google+ Photos on Android with a link to download the new Google Photos. Don’t worry, all your photos and videos will still be saved and available after you switch to the new, stand-alone Google Photos app. With the new app you’ll still be able to backup, edit, and share your photos and videos, with unlimited storage, automatic organization, and more.

Download the new Google Photos today for uninterrupted access to all your photos, videos and albums.  If you don’t update to the new Google Photos, Google+ Photos on Android will soon stop working, but your photos and videos will still remain safely stored and available via http://photos.google.com or for export using Google Takeout.
