Google Photos is going on a multi-city tour, wants to give you free grub for using Photos

"With the newly launched Google Photos probably being your go-to choice for backing up pictures and videos, not everyone knows about it.

To help spread the word, Google Photos is now teasing an upcoming promotion for July 29th in New York City using the hashtag #paywithaphoto. No, it’s not some kind of new mobile payments service (thank god), or anything really having to do with payments at all..."

Google+ Photos shutting down August 1 to make way for Google Photos

"If you’ve been using Google Photos in lieu of Google Plus Photos, you’re probably not alone. Today, Google announced it will begin shutting down Google Plus Photos on August 1.

The shutdown will hit Android first, then iOS and the Web “soon thereafter.” Google also notes users have been seeing prompts in Plus to switch to the new Google Photos service, so many have likely migrated or are using both.

This isn’t much of a surprise, though. At a small event after Google I/O this year, Google’s Vice President of Products Bradley Horowitz said its social arm was going through a “renaissance in thinking of what Plus is and for.” For Horowitz, Plus should be about connecting people with similar interests together, not a catch-all social service.

Google says those still using Google Plus Photos should download the Google Photos app soon “for uninterrupted access to all your photos, videos and albums.” If you fail to switch ahead of August 1, Google says you can find your photos and videos at its photos portal, and they’ll be available for export using Google Takeout."

After trying it for a while, I really dislike Google Photos when compared to the easier and more intuitive Picasaweb. I hope that Google does not abandon Picasaweb in favor of their latest shiny object.

Google Photos image URLs don't even have image-type suffixes (PNG, JPG, etc.) so they are unusable in many online forums.

Using YouTube Without Google+ (July 2015)

Taking a first closer look at the news which broke 27th July 2015:

Google+ will become to YouTube what any other Google product is to YouTube, nothing more. Meaning that we wont need Google+ Profiles and, eventually, Google+ Pages in order to use YouTube.

Google+ will be just another Google product, no link!

I love using Google+ for sharing Youtube videos. Youtube is great for many new, trending or topical subjects to exploare videos. It also has entertaining and educational videos. Thanks Youtube.

Update on the Community profile photo size:

It used to be 250x250 px but the new required size is 960x540 px minimum.
A logo style image cannot be used anymore. The cropped area is really small... At least on a square photo. The bigger the original photo, the better.

Got a good tip from +Dustin W. Stout :

"The dimensions I recommend are 1036 x 1036. Bigger is better because it's better to scale down than scale up. Keep all the important stuff in the middle 836px (so leave a padding of 100px on each side)."

How to deal with Trolls

What is trolling? Who is a troll?

Obviously to someone the meaning is different than to others ...

Is trolling or trollish behavior:

- An obnoxious way to try and get attention in strangers' comment threads, usually very negative, aggressive and rude texts

- Fighting with anyone that disagrees

- Someone trying to get even with the world no matter how.

- Getting a feeling of power from antagonistic behavior

- Someone with a lousy self-esteem

- Someone who likes to hurt people. A warped mind, perhaps

Bantering among friends is not trolling, you know your friends and how much they can take. But do you know the limit when you might hurt someone?

What is trolling to you?
How would you define it? Have you come up against many trolls on Google+?

Let's discuss this without trololoos, shall we? :-)

Read on to get the troll management tips:

What is Google+?

Google+ is different from other platforms and needs a bit more work than, lets say Pinterest. But once you've understood what the idea behind Circles is, the rewards are great. Don't wait for your friends and family to join you but venture outside your comfort zone and you might be surprised!

ALL our posts in Timeline format HERE!

What about Google+, why would I create a new social media account?

For the newcomers to Google+ the place might look like a desert. Your stream is empty, your friends haven’t joined in, the whole place feels strange and even its UI is a bit baffling. Where to start?

Please finish your profile, make it a first priority.

When you add me to your Circles I always try to check who you are, to see if you're worth circling back. Without public posts and a good 'Information' text on your profile it's very difficult to determine what your likes are...

The same if I find you commenting on someone else's post: Make your profile image striking for attracting the attention, if that's what you'd like, that is.

Posts, profile, photo... If there is nothing showing, I'll not even think of circling you back, sorry.

Use the Google+ search

Search Google+ for your favorite authors, artists, celebrities, sports stars. Search for your preferred hobby or anything you are interested in, then circle those who say things that grab your attention. Check who they have circled or who has circled them. Select abundantly and soon you’ll find yourself splashing in streams of thoughts, tips and news about the very things that interest you. Search for #hashtags and save the search for later easy use.

Be yourself and post about the topics you like:
It's just a question of finding your niche. And making an effort.
My 5 C:s are: Circle, curate, create, communicate & consume!

Google+ is what you make of it...
