Everyone knows what the Do Not Call list is for phones. I think it's time we had a Do Not Email list, too. Has anyone been through the process of doing a White House poll?

Why doesn't Google search include Twitter posts?

If you do search.twitter.com you can search anything you want on Twitter.

#google  What were you thinking? You've broken the YouTube app on iOS. Prior to the latest "upgrade", I could start watching a YouTube video, sending to my TV. While it was playing I could check my eMail, use your Google+ app, or Message with my wife.

NOW, as soon as one switches away from the YouTube app, it stops working. When you return to it, you can press play and it picks up, but the point is that it always kept working until this latest release. 😞

What were your thinking?

Why has Google+ changed the display font of comments? ☹

My comments seem to be in the same font but I've got some freaky new icons in the drop down menu and it suddenly says 'My Business' at the top!

Maybe I'm missing something about Google lack of security. I shared my phone number in a message that was shared privately to an individual who was in a depressed state on. Google+ said, right on the message, shared privately. And it was, within Google+. However, I went outside Google+ to Google and did a search and... there was my message, available for anyone to see, with my phone number in it. WTFSM⁈

I. Am. Confused. ☹

+Dave Bennett Sorry about posting from the brand page, but wanted to comment before it got lost in my stream.
1)  If you are logged in, you are seeing customized results visible to you.  You will always see your own posts.
2)  To check general public view, you have to open an incognito window from the top right menu (in Chrome).   
Hope that helps! - Christina

Why don't browsers have an "Update Window every X minutes" option? #dagnabit

I'll bet a clever JavaScript programmer could make an add-on for it!

Google has taken the stream I follow the most, my String circle stream, and turned it into an All stream. All posts to any circle show up in my String stream as of yesterday. If I go to any other circle and view just its stream, it only shows the posts by people in that circle.

I never used the All stream as in does not show all the posts by everyone in every circle. Even with each circle's setting to (originally) all and (currently) to more, monitoring the All stream only displays about 25% of the posts people I've circled make.

Now Google has decided that since I spend 99% of my time in my String circle, I must have meant for it to be an All stream and have polluted it with postings from every circle. For me, the solution is simple: I've deleted all of my other circles. I can get the information and personal interaction I was getting via my other circles through industry sponsored sites and sites like Tumblr and Twitter.

As +Jason Simmons has ranted, and I agree, whoever is driving the changes at Google+ seem to be purposefully running it into the ground. Besides, Google seems to be making more money by mining our posts here and our email content on gMail. Hopefully the current court cases against Google on these issues will continue to go against them. (These judgements are part of the reason for the recent privacy changes the users of Google products have been notified about over the past few days.)

Yes, I am a big fan of social networks, but to be constantly "challanged" to relearn what I was using yesterday is just ridiculous.  I would be very upset if I started knitting a pair of socks one day and the pattern changed the next day.  #GoogleNeedsToListen

Mr. Kerry,

After watching leaders of our Country's intelligence forces lie, under oath, before Congressional inquiries with no subsequent arrests, charges, or penalties, we've all learned one thing about this "American Justice System" that you recently touted so highly to Edward Snowden: it will do anything to preserve the status quo. Mr. Kerry, in case you haven't been reading the papers for the past decade, Americans do not want the status quo. And Mr. Snowden is right to believe he will be made the scapegoat of a government dog-and-pony show to gloss over the Constitutional violations of the NSA monitoring program.

So, G+ has gone crazy. Every couple minutes it's displaying, "154 new posts", "57 new posts", etc. When I click on it, it errors out. And there are ZERO new posts. ☹ #gplusproblems

I do not like that Google+ is putting posts into my All stream by people who are not in my circles. ☹ #googlefuckup

I think Google is having difficulty in the number of servers and storage they have made available for G+. And with the grade C changes being made to G+ and the poor designs being approved, I'm inclined to believe that this project has been moved to a back burner. ☹
