Nuff said
If you ever wanted to watch to virtual assistants argue with each other for hours on end, well, you’re in luck. Some maniac is live streaming two Google Homes arguing with each other, so of course thousands of people are watching it.

RIP Twitter Lead Cards
Twitter takes one more step towards becoming obsolete.
The death of lead cards is on Jan 10th 2017. Yep, one of the only things that made Twitter show potential ROI is going away.

Did you use lead cards?

Some of you might rightly recognize that items on this list were present in Google+ Classic but were added to the new Web preview over the past fourteen months. Why? We completely re-wrote the Google+ Web app from scratch. Rather than rebuild every nook and cranny that developed over the five year history of Google+, we started with a clean slate of the features people used the most (based on our data & research). We then released this preview version to collect feedback and find out what people missed the most of what we left out.

Not every feature/setting has returned but we have been continuously listening and making updates (as seen above). And we’ll continue doing so. To make your voice heard, please send us your ideas/issues using the Send Feedback menu item. Thanks~

ht +Luke Wroblewski 
What's Trending? This Launch.
Today we're starting to roll out two new updates to the Recommended & Trending posts feature on Google+. On all platforms, we've adjusted how we rank these posts to include more high-quality content.

Also, the Google+ web experience now includes a volume control for how much Recommended & Trending content you'd like to see in your Home stream. Pick from none to lots.

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. Thanks~

Rebranding Guidelines Added to GMB
_Rebranding If you change the name of your brand or any of your locations, update them by editing your business information . Businesses are eligible for rebranding if:

The business name changes, but the business category, management, and ownership remain the same.
The business acquires or merges with another business and changes its name.
The business has multiple locations and changes the names for all of those locations. Businesses that make significant identity changes (e.g. hotel or fast food establishments that switch franchise affiliations or car dealers that specialize in a different make of car), are considered new businesses and aren’t eligible for rebranding.

If your business is ineligible, first mark the existing business listing as permanently closed , then create a new listing using your new business identity._

See the guidelines here:

I am the co-founder of a company called Steady Demand. We are solely focused on Business Brand Page Management on Google+. To put it simply, we do all the heavy lifting, writing, engagement, developing quality followers and we stay up to speed on social and search so you can focus on what you do best -- growing your business

( We also educate you along the way ) - Check out this free tool we created to help you check your connection from your G+ business brand page to your website. The tool will also grade your posts and teach you how to make them the best they can be.

We started Steady Demand after a few of our consulting clients came to us and started asking for help with manual penalties. We saw the coming of semantic search ( Hummingbird ) Social Signals and the convergence of Social and SEO a while ago, so we decided to apply Google+ and experiment with how we can help companies rank better naturally.

Using a combination of relationship building, thought leadership and the creation of great content, we will work with you ( as a partner ) to help you meet your business objectives.

While on the expensive side, the meal was delicious, the staff were courteous and the atmosphere was perfect. My only complaint was that the staff seem like they are in a rush to get you out of the restaurant, even though they were mostly empty tables there.
