Nissan Leaf 2018

It's not mind blowing, but it is a big improvement on the original Leaf and with a real world range that will make a lot of people happy.

Bulk moderation for communities

Another update to G+! The Christmas spirit is well and truly here now.
Bulk moderation of community posts

Just in case you were in the mood for yet another update this week, over the next several days we'll be rolling out a feature for communities that allow moderators to bulk select posts for moderation in the Likely Spam and Held for Review queues.

Moderators can initiate the feature by clicking on Select Posts in the upper left of the queue. This will enable a multiple-select checkbox interface with an accompanying Select All option to apply ban/approve/reject moderation actions in bulk.

Delete, report and block

Possibly the greatest update so far to G+.
Delete, report, block

Hello folks, a third update this week. By popular demand, we'll be rolling out a feature over the next few days that will allow you to perform a delete, report, and block action on comments on your posts.

This is similar to the remove, report, and ban action we launched a while ago for community moderators:
https://plus.google.com/+LeoDeegan/posts/3NGFAhREovQ
https://plus.google.com/+LeoDeegan/posts/WjcFN66eRgg

The launch today, however, is to provide you an equivalent action on your own posts.

To invoke this feature, select "Delete, report, and block" from a comment. You can optionally select "Also delete recent comments by this user" if you want to additionally remove recent comments from the user on your posts.

Incidentally, this image is for illustrative purposes. I am not actually planning on blocking +Greg Wolfe, who is a valuable member of our team (and also the lead for this feature).

Kinder Christmas

Recently I spent time helping to man a market stall. Everything on sale was for charity, but importantly it was all produced with either recycled or natural materials.

Well the Kinder Living team have put together a free guide to help people make the most of Christmas without creating too much waste, either by making your own decorations or making more sustainable choices.

I like the USB bottles lights myself. They are very effective and unlike the ones with disposable batteries, they can be recharged.
Enjoying a Kinder Christmas

We have produced a free downloadable guide to making your Christmas not just special, but kinder too. There are ideas for decorations and food. Take your pick!

Visit the page to download the guide.

World Bank to end financial support for oil and gas exploration

This is a very welcome change in policy from the World Bank. Fingers crossed that others follow in their footsteps.

Electric car range may soon triple

And what a day it will be when it does. Battery technology is accelerating so quickly it is hard to keep up.

G+ Community Insights Dashboard

More cool stuff coming to a Google+ near you. Is Christmas early this year?
Community Insights dashboard

Hello folks, over the next several days, we'll be rolling out a new dashboard for community moderators that provides informative metrics for their communities.

Moderators will notice a new community "Manage" button (previously "Moderate"). The Insights dashboard appears as the first tab and includes helpful membership and engagement metrics.

You can read more from our G Suite blog post here, which also describes a community report for G Suite admins:
