Schedule posts for Google+ Profiles and Collections without the browser running all the time!

I am happy to announce that Google+ team has taken another step in the right direction and made it possible to publish to Google+ profiles and collections to all Google+ partners.

So from now on, Friends+Me users are going to be able to schedule and publish posts for Google+ profiles and collections without the need to keep the browser with the Friends+Me extension up and running all the time!

We've almost lost all hopes but it's finally here! How cool is that!

All you have to do is to reconnect your already connected Google+ Profile and Page accounts to enable this new feature.
The feature will be automatically enabled for all accounts you'll connect from now on.

There's a catch. The extended Google+ API do not support publishing to Google Apps profiles, only vanilla Google profiles are supported at the moment. Google+ team promised to remove this limitation soon.

Let me know what you think of this new feature.

Enjoy :)

Screen Layout Improvements
From the start, our new Google+ Web experience was built as a Responsive Web Design (RWD), meaning it adapts to the amount of screen space available within a Web browser by re-sizing images, changing layouts, and more. Recently we had the pleasure of working with Ethan Marcotte (https://ethanmarcotte.com), the originator of RWD, on a number of substantial improvements to how we adapt to different screen sizes on the Google+ Web experience. Starting today, we:

* Display more posts on smaller screens
* Switch to a 3 column display sooner
* Use new header designs on Communities, Collections and Profiles
* Resize posts more effectively
* And more...

To experience these all changes, simply try out the Google+ Web experience on different phones, tablets, laptops, desktops, or just different Web browser window sizes.

And 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~

Hiding Low-Quality Comments
Today we announced a new feature for Google+ Android, iOS, and Web: hiding low-quality comments on posts so its easier to have good conversations on G+. By default, this helps you focus on comments that matter most. But if you’d like to see all the comments on a post, you can simply tap on “View more comments.”

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~

We have a Christmas gift for you!

Our very first mobile application (Android, iOS) that will enable you to publish / schedule / share posts from your mobile devices.

iOS Apple Store - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/friends+me/id1164926573?ls=1&mt=8

Android Play Store - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=me.friendsplus&utm_campaign=googleplus

It is a very basic application at the moment and we'll keep adding more and more features until it's a fully featured alternative to our web application.

Merry Christmas Everyone and Happy New Year!

Google+ gets better and better!

Look at all the work...
 
Over a Year of New Web Features
With today's announcement (https://blog.google/products/google-plus/making-googleplus-work-better-for-you/) of our upcoming transition to the new Google+ Web experience, I thought it would be useful to share all the feature additions, fixes, and updates we’ve made thanks to your feedback over the past fourteen months:

* Community "Hold Posts for Review" setting
* Review & reinstate comments we flag as spam

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~

HELP: Newly created G+ community posts are not visible in the community feed after refresh. The post can be access with direct link but is not visible in the feed.

Am I the only one with this problem?

Fast and easy video posting

I'm excited to announce a new feature to make it easier than ever to add high quality video content to your posts with a couple taps. The new youtube icon you’ll find in your posting options leads to a page where you can simply tap on videos to preview them and add them to your post. For easy navigation, we’ve included your recently liked (on youtube) and the most popular videos pre-loaded and you can always search for that specific video you wanted to share.

Happy sharing!
