All I could think of while reading this article was: "Finally an intelligent conversation on Google+!"

To many the Plus is a failed experiment because Google tried to compete with Facebook. But I feel that it has never been about that. The platform is not a failure. It's just the perfect example of a business that pays attention to what its community and customers say. 

I have always felt that Google listens to users. And as +Casey Newton states in this post, Google+ is now finally small enough to build on. It’s focused, self-contained, and at least by Google terms, not overly ambitious."

The Verge Takes On Online Photo Storage Services
/via +Casey Newton for +The Verge 

Regarding Google+, he says: "Google’s take on photos is still easy to recommend. It offers you unlimited free uploads at a size of 2048 pixels, and it applies some really fun effects to your photos: turning bursts of pictures into looping GIFs, and automatically creating slick vacation photo albums whenever you spend a few days away from home. By default Google shows you highlights of your photos rather than your entire timeline, giving you a pleasing high-level view of your collection. And its web-based editing tools are superb."

Check out the article. Good stuff.
