All the Awesome Stuff You Can Do with Google+ Photos

"First off, Google+ Photos conveniently backs up the photos and videos on your phone or computer. With auto backup turned on, you don't need to worry about uploading them manually to the cloud.

Other online storage services, like Dropbox, do this too, but Google offers one important feature the others don't: unlimited storage space, as long as your photos and videos are uploaded at a standard size.

For photos, that means anything under 2048 x 2048 pixels, and for videos, anything under 15 minutes long. If your photos or videos are larger than that, they will count towards your 15GB of free Google account space, shared by Gmail and Google Drive..."

Shared Circles
And the reasons why it might have been removed as a feature. As +Eli Fennell mentiones this became a highly contested issue at the beginning of last year.
Eli Fennell originally shared to Internet Marketing Blog:
 
Reqiuem In Terra Pax, Shared Circles

Shared Circles on Google+ are no more, and I feel it was probably for the best despite the good and legitimate uses for them.  I wrote the following article about Shared Circles last year, during a time when the issue was being hotly debated in the community.

Be assured it is no coincidence that Shared Circles were deprecated after the debut of Google+ Collections.  No longer can you grow a numerically large following through Mega Ball Circle Spam, the focus now being on connecting users to Collections on topics of interest to them.

I don't know how to use Google+
I read this statement very often.
And I don't know if the person means:
1) I don't know what to use it for
2) I don't know where the features are
The short answer to the first question is that Google+ can be anything you want it to be.
The long answer is: Google+ is not just a social network (one product). It is part of the biggest online presence: Google (multiple products). 
Google+ is the glue that brings together all the Google products by adding a social element. And by that I mean, brings people together through their interests.
The interests can be personal or business. Sharing knowledge or learning. Buying or selling. Exploring or being found. Playing. Reading. Listening to music. Working. Creating content or consuming it.
For me Facebook is the market square (local news, meeting mostly people you know and lots of trading). Google+ is the world fair (cultural exchanges, exposure to the unknown, branding, international views)
There is no short answer for the second question
You can look at the list of answers in the attached post

What about if we develop Internet infrastructure and stop travelling to work daily, saving money in roads, productivity, fuel, carbon emissions?
I am not sure that thinking about 2031 like it is 1970 will help us prepare for the future.
Congestion in the biggest capital cities threatens to cost Australians $53 billion a year by 2031, sapping productivity and living standards, unless action is taken, Tony Abbott­’­s infrastructure tsar will warn today.

Public transport might be suitable for some.
But taking away the car is taking away a person's freedom to go out anywhere they wanted at any time.
For anything to happen it always costs money.
And its the public that ends up paying.
It all leads back to the Government-and if they lose money through lack of transport(cars)less fuel sold.
Its not ideal as the public are continuously robbed by the public now.
