Brilliant post by +Cyrus Shepard  on getting the most out of G+ for all aspects of digital marketing. 

While the debate about social signals affect on SEO rages on, I found it really interesting that any posts on G+ that gets a +1 earns followed linked.
 
Today +Cyrus Shepard has some great suggestions for you! From smarter formatting to leveraging the comments, these 10 tips will help you take full advantage of the benefits that Google+ has to offer.
While not everyone has an audience active on Google+, the number of people who interact socially with any Google products on a monthly basis now reportedly ​exceeds 500 million.

+Chris ZigZag  would you agree the McDs graph here?
 
True Facts Infography

+Nina Matzat shared a wonderful collection of "true facts," four of them are below.

Each is funny, painful, real, and extremely well put together. The entire collection is well worth seeing: http://goo.gl/wwNTdy

People in Australia really like riding bikes early and dressing in lycra. This example was taken at 6:45am in Brisbane while they were having a coffee.

Don't you just love the internet? While doing some research for content ideas I came across this little gem of a question on a Q&A site. 

I hope it is a fake question, but I'm fascinated by the idea that someone first thought in this situation is to post the question on the internet (probably checked Facebook, before posting because they saw an notification).

Even better is people have responded, some serious, other with basic common sense, like "Get off the Internet".

The "Lego" phone getting closer to a reality.

This appeals to the Lego lover in me and the geek.

That is exactly what it is. They are in the process of define a frame and a standard for all the components, so you can build and update a phone as you like. #ShutUpAndTakeMyMoney  

Also, I have to disagree on finger print recognition, the time I have saved not putting in my 4 digit code in has allowed me to write this comment.

Would Google really be like this if it was a person? I particularly like the NSA references

Did you know that the point at 76.6°S, 66.7°E is furthest away from any airport in the world? 
 
Which airport is closest to you?

The dots in this graphic by Jason Davies show the major airports of the world. Each region consists of the points that are closer to a particular airport than to any other. For example, the irregular pentagonal light green area containing Iceland (near the top of the picture) shows all the places for which Reykjavik is the nearest major airport.

Jason Davies' website (https://www.jasondavies.com/maps/voronoi/airports/) has an interactive version of this map, in which the airports are labelled. The globe can be spun and twisted, and you can zoom in and out.

The furthest place in the world from a major airport is in Antarctica, which is perhaps not a surprise given that there are no large airports on that continent. It lies 5173.7km from each of the three nearest airports.

Mathematicians call a picture like this a Voronoi diagram. The individual regions are called Voronoi cells, and the points (airports in this case) are often called sites. Wikipedia has a nice page on Voronoi diagrams here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voronoi_diagram).

Wow. I will never forget the first time I visited Noosa National park. In two years I've lived in QLD, I've been 10 times. An absolute must.

Great place with bundles of character and 2nd to none service, especially when busy. Only draw back is quite small, so you may have to wait a while.

If you wakeboard or wakeskate, you have to visit Republic once in your life. It really lives up to the title "most innovative wake park in the world". There are sprinklers on the sliders to keep them wet, they have a great range of sliders and kickers for people of all abilities. Avoid weekends otherwise you'll use up your time queuing rather than riding. Only thing I'd change is better transitions on the kickers, they are a bit too flat, so you don't get much pop.
