Ryan Hanley13,451*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. That's why I asked @115904906255790884130 and @101696764219780312734 two of the *ABSOLUTE BEST* Google Hangouts on Air hosts rocking the Interweb to join us and share their secrets on creating amazing Hangouts. Seriously, this show is going to be ridiculously valuable to anyone with a Hangout show or currently considering starting one.

How many followers did you lose today?

It looks like Google+ has started with the spring cleaning and has removed many spam/fake/whatever accounts.
Our follower number dropped by 781 followers and as you can see in this chart [http://www.circlecount.com/weather/] the average follower growth dropped as well.

Do you need to worry?
No!
Absolutely not! These are not people who have unfollowed you because of anything you have said or posted.
Normally Google+ is removing profiles that are spamming or fake accounts that are never used. This means that you have never get any activity from the profiles that have been removed now.

Check out for example the average on our posts here:

+Eli Fennell is very successful with his Google+ Collections.

Check out his article with some very good tips about how to use Google+ Collections.

My Tips For Using Google+ Collections

Google+'s new focus, ever since its recent 'Material Design Makeover', has been squarely on two areas of the network: Collections and Communities. It has now become far easier to connect with Followers along a particular topic or theme than to attract Followers to your Profile. (By all accounts, including +CircleCount's extensive data about Google+ users and trends, Profile and Page growth has virtually flattened as the emphasis has changed to Collections and Communities.)

It is no longer optional, if your goal is to build a large and engaged audience on Google+, to place your focus on these areas. Admittedly, I've never been very good at running a Community of my own (though I do moderate a few), but when it comes to Collections, I've had several of my Collections Featured by the network, three of which have over 100K Followers, with one Collection achieving over 300K Followers since debuting last year.

In the following article, I offer a few basic tips for creating and getting the most traction from your Google+ Collections.

An update on the search here on Google+

Much needed! The search still needs upgrades, especially because Google should have some knowledge on searching.

G+ Search Update April 15
We're continuing to improve Google+ search this week with another update (on Web, Android, & iOS) that removes nearly identical posts in search results. These occasionally show up because two different branches of the same company have posted similar content. With this update, we're tracking down such near-duplicates so you shouldn't see them popping up in your search results anymore.

As always, please send us your ideas/issues using our Send Feedback menu item as that's the best way to ensure we'll see them.

CircleCount is tidying up
first big step towards a new CircleCount

As the server costs are rather increasing instead of decreasing and the PRO subscriptions are not increasing as fast as we wanted we are forced to act.

As Google+ is drastically changing and we want to become faster and more agile, we decided to get rid of a few very performance intense tasks.

Almost all of our features regarding rankings are going to be removed in the next couple of days to weeks. So do not be shocked if you do not find them any more. They are not used as much as they used to in the old days. Also we are going to focus more on the individual user and his crowd than the whole network itself.

Just to make sure nobody totally freaks out. All the functionality regarding your profile still remains. So your dashboard and everything associated with it remains fully... more »

Just to make sure nobody totally freaks out. All the functionality regarding your profile still remains. So your dashboard and everything associated with it remains fully functional. The historical numbers (followers, views) we have collected so far for the profiles who have logged in on CircleCount will also stay and won't get removed. The same for the pages that have been used to login or have been added to a profile on CircleCount.

As always, feedback is very welcome. ;)

More Controls - Less Spam

Google+ Communities got an update.
It's great that community moderation got some some love!

via +Luke Wroblewski
h/t +Frank Rodriguez

Keep connecting with other people in Google+ -- and keep more spam out with our new content controls setting.

Our Communities are great places to share and discuss the things you love. Unfortunately, spammers are also aware of how communities bring lots of people together, and they target all manner of spam or racy and inappropriate content to many of our most active communities.

So today we’ve added more protection to our communities with stronger content filters & controls. Now we can be more aggressive in identifying inappropriate posts in a Community. When this setting is on, Google+'s content filter is more likely to flag posts that are questionable, so fewer of them will show up in your Community. Check your moderator queue to see these blocked posts.

Stronger content filtering will be on by default when you create a community and will be gradually enabled for many existing communities, so we can keep your communities great!

Have you ever used Nik Collection?
It's free now! Will you start using it?

Tell us more about it because we just now that it is described as a great tool.

Also a nice move that there is a refund for everyone who has paid for it this year.

Today we’re making the Nik Collection available to everyone, for free.

Photo enthusiasts all over the world use the Nik Collection to get the best out of their images every day. As we continue to focus our long-term investments in building incredible photo editing tools for mobile, including Google Photos and Snapseed, we’ve decided to make the Nik Collection desktop suite available for free, so that now anyone can use it.

The Nik Collection is comprised of seven desktop plug-ins that provide a powerful range of photo editing capabilities -- from filter applications that improve color correction, to retouching and creative effects, to image sharpening that brings out all the hidden details, to the ability to make adjustments to the color and tonality of images.

Starting March 24, 2016, the latest Nik Collection will be freely available to download: Analog Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro, Viveza, HDR Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro and Dfine. If you purchased the Nik Collection in 2016, you will receive a full refund, which we’ll automatically issue back to you in the coming days.

We’re excited to bring the powerful photo editing tools once only used by professionals to even more people now. ___Have you ever used Nik Collection?

Google+ Create

An hour ago +Daniel Raynaud announced Google+ Create a new program for Google+.

You should check it out if you have "themed Collections" with "high-quality content" and "new posts weekly". At least these are the points Google+ is expecting for the Google+ Create Members.

What do you think?
Do you agree with the very positive feedback on Daniel's post?

We are very proud that one of our PRO users is already a Google+ Create Member.
Congratulations +Paolo Amoroso!
Any relation to your PRO account?
just kidding ;)

Introducing Google+ Create

Today we are launching Google+ Create (g.co/PlusCreate), a unique program that gives amazing content creators the recognition and audience they deserve.

When we introduced Google+ Collections last May, we were blown away by the amazing things people began sharing, from the beautiful (goo.gl/ryi0jv) to the breathtaking (goo.gl/n0KpR6), from the profound (goo.gl/XfBB0y) to the playful (goo.gl/zdDVsf), from the whimsical (goo.gl/zLOMgy) to the wonderfully eclectic (goo.gl/kgtI38).

And people on Google+ agree. Since launching the redesigned Google+ in November, Collection follows have more than doubled.

But these Collections don’t create themselves. Behind them are fascinating individuals who bring their flair, imagination and craft to engage and inspire others. There are food alchemists like +maria nasir in Lahore, Pakistan, writers and woodturners like +Ellie Kennard and +Steven Kennard in Nova Scotia, and daredevil acrobats like +Randy T on a mountain top near you.

We want to celebrate these inspiring creators and amplify their unique voices. Google+ Create members get a verified profile, early access to new product features, a private channel with the Google+ team, and special opportunities to build their audiences.

Visit g.co/PlusCreate to meet some of our members, learn about the benefits, and apply to join if you’re interested. Or just immerse yourself in the diversity of Collections already on Google+ (g.co/Collections).___Google+ Create

CircleCount PRO - Massive Price Drop

As you all probably know, we are struggling with our server costs.
Since the response was not as big as expected, we figured that the price was probably the biggest obstacle for our great community to support us.

Because we believe in our great product, we decided to massively decrease the price, so it really becomes affordable to everyone! :)

So feel free to check out the free trial: http://www.circlecount.com/pro/

Also stay tuned, because there is some big change coming (something a lot of you are going to love) in the not so distant future…

How many followers did you lose today?

It looks like Google+ has started with the spring cleaning and has removed many spam/fake/whatever accounts.
Our follower number dropped by 781 followers and as you can see in this chart [http://www.circlecount.com/weather/] the average follower growth dropped as well.

Do you need to worry?
No!
Absolutely not! These are not people who have unfollowed you because of anything you have said or posted.
Normally Google+ is removing profiles that are spamming or fake accounts that are never used. This means that you have never get any activity from the profiles that have been removed now.

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.

I think the added feature to upload multiple images at once to a post is something that was asked a lot.

btw: We love images and we will help you soon to present your best photos in a beautiful way.
Just saying ;)

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!___

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.
