|Bobo Fett||370||Those of you flocking here from the horror that is Facebook, or any that have been here for a while, or maybe even never a part of FB, some pointers to get you started.First thing to know if you type a question mark pretty much anywhere (as long as you don't have a text field in focus, in other words a blinking cursor where you would type text) in G+ you get a little pop up that gives you some handy basic keyboard shortcuts.If you are new here and and you are looking to make your feed more active, click the two little circles labeled Find people in the icons down the left side of the G+ page. There you can search for people you know and add them to your circles. Circles are what G+ uses to allow you to organize your friends list. G+ starts you off with a few default Circles to use, you just need to add people and/or pages to things you enjoy to one of those circles. Once you have you will see grey buttons at the top of your main feed (The page you get to if you click the big Google+ icon in the top left hand corner). The first button is the default All circles button, here you will see all of the posts of every person/page you have added to any of your circles. Next to the All button you will see buttons with the names of your circles. If you click one of them you will of course see just posts from people/pages in that circle, but also on the rightish side, not quite at the top of the page, you will find a button that says Settings. That is a drop down that gives you two check boxes. One is "Show posts in home stream" the other is "Get Notified of new posts". They pretty much do what they say, and "get notified" means any posts from this circle will make the number between your name and the + Share button in the top right hand corner increment and go red. You can click that number at any time (even if it's red and 0) to get a drop down window which will show a condensed version of all posts from circles you get notified about. It will also notify you any time someone circles you back, and any +1s you have received in posts or comments you have made. As well as, comments in posts you have also commented on. On this Settings button you will also see a grey area that says Amount. If you hover over that you get to choose More, Standard, or Fewer. Which controls how frequently the posts from that circle appear in your feed.If you combine the above tools with the fact that you can change the name of any circle, add as many as you like, and also have people in more than one circle, you have very granular control over what posts you see and when, and exactly who can see your posts. You can also share your circles with other people, as I have done below. If you click the View shared circle button below, you will be able to see all the pages in a circle I call, go figure, Pages. You can look through it and if you like everything you can just add the whole circle as a new circle. Or, you can pick and choose which things you find interesting and add just them to your own circle that you already have or create a new circle. Moving stuff from circle to circle is as easy and dragging the rectangle for that particular page/person and dropping onto the circle you want it to be in. You could also just add this circle in full and then just delete the stuff you don't want (little x in top right hand corner of each rectangle when you hover over it). Or just view this circle to get ideas for what sort of stuff can be searched for, and use the search box at the top of the Find people/Circle page to find stuff you like.Now once you have some friends added to circles, and pages/people you would like to follow added as well, your feed will get much more interesting. Now on to posting your own stuff. In the Share what's new... field at the top of pages, you can of course type anything you like||2013-05-03 19:55:12||143||0||0||1||CC G+|

I"m going to share my other circles, invite the members to join MVA, and then I'm going to delete all those circles so I can give more attention here. I will keep one circle of people like the +Dalai Lama and +Richard Branson who I would love to have join MVA but I don't want to lose track of if they don't. And that's it.

|Hugo van der Merwe||925||My Pages circleMy G+ Home stream is pretty overwhelming, it would not be possible to read everything if I hadn't significantly dialled down some circles. I can and do read everything in my "Friends" circle, not too hard as many people aren't very active. ;) (I also limit my "Friends" circle to fewer than 100 people: I have an Acquaintances circle dialled down to the recommended "most posts", rather than "every post").A large portion of my Home stream consists of news-related posts from pages, with a good dose of geek and personal interests mixed in. I have a couple of non-overlapping circles that I use specifically for pages. A "Google Pages" circle contains, you guessed it, a whole bunch of Google pages. I also have a plain "Pages" circle which doesn't contain Google pages. In fact, here I'm sharing my "Pages" circle, for what it's worth. It is not particularly well curated, it's a mixed-value bag, but some of the pages in this circle are highly recommended! ;) What are your favourite pages?(BTW my pages circles are dialled down to one notch above zero, i.e.: "Show some posts from Pages in your Home stream".)||2012-11-08 21:45:19||32||3||0||0||CC G+|

"The resolution reaffirms a core principle of international human rights law: Individuals should not be denied human rights simply because they live in another country from the one that is surveilling them."

Here is EFF's initial response to the White House's NSA review group's 46 reform recommendations. A lot of the proposals are excellent, including more transparency, stopping the encryption sabotage, and critically ending the government's collection and retention of data on everyone. However, we're disappointed that the group left the door open for future mass surveillance.

"Since the Arab uprisings erupted, the authorities handled online calls for street protests in Morocco first through propaganda, mass negative comments, intimidation, then physical repression. Online censorship was not at the top of the list per se because the priority was to control the crowds on site. If anything, “watching” the internet helped them know when/where it was all going to happen via accessible Facebook pages and events, whereas censorship would have rendered that harder.
However, as the numbers of protesters shrank due to police violence, arrests and intimidation, the authorities had regained control of the streets and tried to control the Internet."

Google removed the excellent App Ops privacy interface from Android. But that feature could have protected against NSA collection of location via apps, and against tracking by creepy apps like "Brightest Flashlight", which was punished by the FTC last week. Google, please bring that privacy protection back! https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2013/12/google-removes-vital-privacy-features-android-shortly-after-adding-them

Google deleted the awesome Android privacy feature we praised yesterday, saying its release was "accidental". https://eff.org/AndPrivFail Users who would, for instance, like to install apps such as Skype or Shazam or Brightest Flashlight without having their location trackable, should consider avoiding the update to version 4.2.2, although this has some other problematic security implications :( :( :(
