Ryan Hanley13,450*Nervous About Hosting Your Own Google Hangout on Air?* _Everything you need to know host killer Hangouts on Air._ The best decision I've ever made for my personal brand was to begin recording the Content Warfare Podcast _(audio only)_ as a live Google Hangout on Air. _Is recording live, with an audience, on video, a heck of a lot more nerve racking than a prerecorded audio only show?_ Yes. _Does it make the experience 100x more Gangster (valuable) for Content Warfare Nation?_ Absolutely.

CircleCount PRO is out now!
Woohoo!

As a lot of you probably know, CircleCount is developed by just a few people on a voluntary basis so far. Since the cost for running the site is steadily increasing and our ad revenue is decreasing we need another revenue stream. 

We calculated that we need 100 paying customers in order to keep the service running for a long time to come. With your money we will be able to pay the server costs and be able to keep developing new CircleCount services. So please spread the word.

We would be very happy if you could order our PRO Service via this link: http://www.circlecount.com/pro/

As a little extra: The first 100 subscriber get a little surprise gift. ;)

Thank you very much for your support and the trust in us!

Kind regards

Your CircleCount Team

Here are some Circles to Count ;)

Gravitational waves, Einstein’s ripples in spacetime, spotted for first time

Long ago, deep in space, two massive black holes—the ultrastrong gravitational fields left behind by gigantic stars that collapsed to infinitesimal points—slowly drew together. The stellar ghosts spiraled ever closer, until, about 1.3 billion years ago, they whirled about each other at half the speed of light and finally merged. The collision sent a shudder through the universe: ripples in the fabric of space and time called gravitational waves. Five months ago, they washed past Earth. And, for the first time, physicists detected the waves, fulfilling a 4-decade quest and opening new eyes on the heavens.

A year ago we have submitted a bug in the issue tracker of the Google+ API.
It is about getting a list of the people who have reshared a post.
The documentation (https://developers.google.com/+/web/api/rest/latest/people/listByActivity) is still describing how it should work, but it still doesn't work.

If there is anyone who can push this issue or ask someone to push this issue, that would be great!

plus.people.listByActivity stopped working for resharers

We have submitted an issue here:
https://code.google.com/p/google-plus-platform/issues/detail?id=1084

I'm posting that here too, just to be sure that other developers can see that there is a bug (this community is the first place for me to check if there is a problem with the API).___A year ago we have submitted a bug in the issue tracker of the Google+ API.

Once again +Corina Marinescu is showing how easy math can be. With the power of circles

Drawing a regular pentagon is almost as easy as subscribing to CircleCount PRO ;)

Who is interacting with you?
CircleCount PRO will tell you

With our PRO feature My Interactors you can get a deep analysis of your posts.

For example I learned right now, that in our last 100 posts we received a comment or a reshare by
► 9 persons with more than 1,000,000 followers and
► 37 persons with more than 100,000 followers

You will also get a chart like the one shown in this post, where you can click on the bubbles to get a full view on an "interactor". You will see on which posts exactly she/he has commented or plusoned. Isn't that great? ;)
We have hovered the mouse randomly over a few names. Can you see your name in the animation?

Check it out now, either by subscribing to CircleCount PRO or by trying it out in the Free Trial:

A short reminder:
As a lot of you probably know, CircleCount is developed by just a few people on a voluntary basis so far. Since the cost for running the site is steadily increasing and our ad revenue is decreasing we need another revenue stream.

We calculated that we need 100 paying customers in order to keep the service running for a long time to come. With your money we will be able to pay the server costs and be able to keep developing new CircleCount services. So please spread the word.

Thank you very much for your support and the trust in us!___

The new Google+ is a complete rebuild from the ground up. Nothing has been removed. Some parts -- including some extremely important parts -- have not been built yet. Google knows the current version of the web interface is both incomplete and far from perfect.  

Now, where the first month of 2016 is almost over, what do you think about the New Google+? Are you using it or are you still using the classic Google+?

We have switched to the New Google+ and are trying to send as much feedback as possible to let the Google+ Team know what we are missing.

#LightsCameraHOA! Meet the Founder of Friends+Me, Alois Belaska!

Join us on Monday, January 25th, as our Featured Guest on our #LightsCameraHOA live-streaming broadcast will be Alois Belaska.  He is the founder of Friends+Me, the automated tool to use for your social media platforms – especially essential for your Google+ Profile and Google+ Page!  

This will be your opportunity to ask Alois any questions you have about the platform.  Alois lives in Zlin, Czech Republic, and he’ll be staying up late in his evening to introduce us to how Friends+Me can be a major help to those of us on Google+ who want to consider posting to our friends around the world during “their” time zones, rather than just posting for those within our own.  As our worldwide friendships continue to grow without geographical boundaries, this is a platform that can keep everyone in touch! 

If you would like to follow Alois on Google+, this is his link:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+AloisB%C4%9Bla%C5%A1ka/about

Take a look at the Friends+Me platform prior to our broadcast so you can have your questions ready!
https://friendsplus.me/

Select YES or MAYBE so this event is placed into your Calendar as a placeholder as a reminder.  Selecting NO will not give you any reminder notifications.

To find out what you need to get started, watch this video:
https://goo.gl/ir6lC3

Please watch the +Lights, Camera HOA Instructions and Requirements video:  https://goo.gl/7al3a4 to determine if you are ready to receive the Join Hangout  button for the live broadcast on a future Monday.

If you would like to be on any future shows, please send an email our way –
Meloney Hall at Meloney@bigupticksocial.com 

**** Guests who have requested to be on the show will receive the JOIN HOA notification 15-20 minutes before we GO-LIVE on-air to prep inside the “green room” (pre-show area).  Guests will also be invited to stay with us after the show for a quick “WOW, I Did It” release-of-joy moment!  

We launch our HOA’s from a G+ Business Page, which means you will have to “circle” it (add it).  This is the link to the page:

Analyze Your Collections!

We are excited to announce a long anticipated feature for all the PRO users out there today.
Introducing "Your Collections Analysis"

Since Google+ vastly shifted towards collections lately, so did we.

This new feature now lets you use the power of our CircleCount dashboard for your collections. Moreover you are able to compare the average Plusone, Reshare & Comment development per post betweens your collections and your own profile.

Like you can see in the attached screenshot, our CirclesCounted Collection is performing in average much better than our Page in total.
You see, you will get some very interesting stats and will be able to optimize your collection usage.

We have been asked many times why the plusones are disappearing. And every time we could only answer that we can't help.

Here is Google+ to help!

Thanks +Luke Wroblewski​ and everyone in the team for the ongoing updates!

Plus Ones Restored
Today some of you may notice a jump in +1s on your older posts. We had an issue earlier that resulted in some +1s not being displayed correctly. As of today, that's fully resolved and all your posts should show the right number of +1s.

Thanks to everyone who brought this to our attention and apologies for any problems~___We have been asked many times why the plusones are disappearing. And every time we could only answer that we can't help.

Clock Work, Blood Work by +Sean Walker
#CirclesCounted: 252

This animation uses a 12-12-3 Archimedean tiling, with circles as vertices. Three distinct arrays are constructed and used to rotate symmetrical sub-groupings of the tiling's vertices (3,6,18) during the animation. Because I tend to convert many of my 2D animations into 3D ones and because Processing's PVector class is irritatingly mutable, I use the 3-space classes from Apache Commons library for vectors and rotations.

This animation is dedicated to +Corina Marinescu for her impressive contributions on G+ and because she's a wonderful inimitable character

If you enjoy this animation, are interested in seeing others or would like to ask any questions, please check out Sean's profile: +Sean Walker

How many +1's did the most plusoned post in 2015 receive?

And: do you think you can post something in 2015 that will get more +1's? ;)

Join the Simple Science and Interesting Things Community and share interesting stuff! https://plus.google.com/communities/117518490246975838002

The basis for the modern understanding of orbits was first formulated by Johannes Kepler whose results are summarised in his three laws of planetary motion. First, he found that the orbits of the planets in our solar system are elliptical, not circular (or epicyclic), as had previously been believed, and that the Sun is not located at the center of the orbits, but rather at one focus. Second, he found that the orbital speed of each planet is not constant, as had previously been thought, but rather that the speed depends on the planet's distance from the Sun. Third, Kepler found a universal relationship between the orbital properties of all the planets orbiting the Sun. For the planets, the cubes of their distances from the Sun are proportional to the squares of their orbital periods

Too bad that the job is far away from here, but it's worth reading the description of the responsibilities to find this sentence:

That's exactly what we want to hear +Google! ;)

Shared memories made easy with Google Photos

They told us this is coming and now it's here!
Just in time for the holidays like +Bradley Horowitz said.

With the launch of Google Photos in May, we made it simpler to share images and albums by sending links over SMS, email, or messaging apps. With today’s launch, you can now make the albums you send collaborative. People receiving the shared album can join to add their own photos and videos, and also get notifications when new pics are added. You can even save photos and videos from a shared album to your Google Photos library, so that you can hold onto them even if you weren’t the one holding the camera.

End of CircleCount + Ads

Ok, that's probably not about what you thought after reading the title ;) Ads will stay on CircleCount, because this is our main/only revenue stream.

The linked article on +Search Engine Land is describing how the follower count will be removed again from the ads that are shown in Google Search.
Another sign that Google+ is putting the focus to collections and communities and away from the profiles/followers.

Have you ever seen a follower number on a search ad?

+Eli Fennell about +Friends+Me

When a great guy (=Eli) writes an article about a great service (=Friends+Me, which is one of our partners) it should get shared ;)

Are you using Friends+Me?

How I Use Friends+Me and Google+ To Rule Social Media
http://goo.gl/9O3q3G

I'm a Google+ User. I share to multiple social networks daily, but I do almost all of it just by sharing to Google+. For the most part, though, you wouldn't know it.

Go to Facebook, and I look active daily on that network. Go to Twitter, again, daily. LinkedIn, Pinterest, the same. I even look like I run a Tumblr blog of memes purely for fun. And I am active on at least some of those daily, reading posts and interacting with other users and responding to their interactions, but I almost never post to any of them.

Almost all that a multi network presence requires me to do is little more than share to Google+, thanks to a powerful, clever, and highly customizable cross-posting tool called +Friends+Me. Because of this, I can actually enjoy using multiple networks, instead of it becoming a chore.

Here is how I use Friends+Me to be almost everywhere online that I want to be, and how even the laziest person who wants to be active on multiple networks can benefit.

(And yes, before you ask it... this very Post will be shared out to my other networks, as well.)
