Google removes the Ripples feature
This is a feature which I will miss.
I found Ripples to be useful, and think this is tragic.
I hope they will change their minds, and bring Ripples back.

#googleplus #gplus #ripple #ripples #googleripples
 
Starting today, the Ripples feature in Google+ is no longer available. Page owners can continue to get post performance analytics through the Google+ Insights tool, located in the My Business dashboard. Thanks for your support as we continue to make Google+ a simpler, more streamlined experience for all.

I doubt it, +J Saga. G+ is an integral part of their system as a whole. It has become what we used to know as Google Profile or Google login. Doing away with Google+ now means doing away with the whole process - for the past 3 years until now - of making it tie the myriad of Google's services, which before it all of them were a different entity on their own.

H#ck, they went as far as making the YouTube and Blogger comment system that based on Google+'s. That means, a lot. Furthermore, they haven't scrapped that one featured called Search + Your world, basically injecting Google+ content from people within your circles in your private searches. And the Android app is as hot as ever.

They are just removing what the consensus don't use, much like with YouTube.

Ja det er imponerende at arrangørene får det til år etter år +Fred Rune Rahm​​. De har vokst fra å være en liten festival til å bli Sunnhordlands største festival med over 23-24000 besøkende.
Tror det handler om at de tilbyr noe for alle. Selv synes jeg programmet i fjor og de 2 siste årene var bedre, men det er jo individuell smak. I år er det vel Sir Tom Jones og Åge som jeg ble overrasket over at de har klart å trekke til lille Tysnes med ca 2700 innbyggere . 😇

Are you interested in beer?
Today I tasted for the first time
"Spesial" 4,7% , from Kinn Brewery (N) .

It was a "easy to drink" beer with a combination of sweet and bitter taste. If you like beer with a hops taste, or if you prefer bitter ales, you will also probably enjoy this beer.

Nei denne denne utgaven hadde en mer humlepreget bitterhet kombinert med en god sødme. Minte litt om pale ale/IPA samtidig som den ikke var det heller

The third way to killer social media engagement.

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/1dl9lM )

The problem with most articles about social media for business is that they're based on best practices for marketing or public relations.

This column is different. I'm going to tell you about the third way to engage in social media—a way that involves neither marketing nor PR. I'll explain how to base your approach to social media on the context of the audience, not the company or industry.

Check this out:

Are you interested in beer?
Here is a beer recommendation!

Today I tasted for the first time
Kniksen India Red Ale 6,8% from
7Fjell Bryggeri (7Mountains
Brewery) (N) .

It was a very good beer with a sweet , but quite rich hops taste . If you love to drink beer in general, or want to enjoy a "long drink beer" this is a beer which you probably will enjoy.

Are you interested in music?
You have probably heard of Alexander Rybak before? If you haven't , he is a music artist/classical violinist which is most famous for the Eurovision Song Contest winner song
"Fairytale" (2009) ( https://youtu.be/WXwgZL4zx9o )

But unlike many other talented music artists , this music artist never stop to surprise me when it comes to entertainment and music.

This is Alexander Rybak as
Conchita Wurst!
Wow!

Here is some other performances from Alexander Rybak which may surprise you as
well:
"Gloria Gaynor - I Will survive"
https://youtu.be/F49VJM4r7Sg

"Dima Bilan - Believe"
https://youtu.be/vSjE5nnTgn8

"Enrique Iglesias - Hero"
https://youtu.be/X01whlR4-T8

"Eduard Khil - Trololo "

FROM
Have A Gay Day

This little girl is smarter than a lot of adults. Meet Maggie, she's seven and saw this sign in her local store.

It upset her right away, she's a big superhero fan. Her mom says in an interview to BuzzFeed that Maggie saw the sign before she did and said something like: “Well that’s wrong! Anybody can like superheroes, they’re being stupid aren’t they?”

The store has since apologized saying: “This alarm clock would make a great gift for both girls and boys. The sign has been removed and we’re sorry if it caused any confusion.”

Best line from the BuzzFeed article is this one: "Fortunately it doesn’t seem to have put her off - as well as superheroes she loves Doctor Who, Minecraft, dragons, skeletons and zombies (she had a cemetery cake for her birthday!) but also likes Frozen, princesses, kittens etc. She just thinks shops labeling toys for boys or girls is silly: “I can like what I want.”

A beer recommendation:

Today I tasted for the first time
"Jimmy Red" - India Red Ale 7,0% ,
from Veholt Mikrobryggeri (N) .

It was a pleasant beer to drink with a sweet aftertaste which may remind you of Coffee and/or chocolate. I recommend it if you love to drink "long drink" beers just to enjoy the taste, or it may also be a good choice if you prefer to drink IPA in general but want to drink a beer which is a bit "darker" on the scale.

A mobile phone photo of a tree.....
Today, while I was walking a walking trip, this tree caught my eye and attention. It stood out from the surroundings I must say.
What kind of tree is that?

`Do you love Music? - This is pure music joy!
If you answered yes to this question, then, you must take a look at
this concert recording! 
This is a Nobel Peace Prize concert recording which I often watch if I want to get in a "feel good  mood" .
Maybe you also should try it?
It is not Often you may see people dancing at a Nobel Peace Prize Concert.
This is Angélique Kidjo  singing the song "Afirika" at the

I am looking for new friends and interesting discussions. So feel free to contact me! Or join me in a Hangout :O)
Introduction

English / Norsk (Norwegian)

English:

I'm using G+ mainly to discover and meet new people, get to know them, and discuss various topics. That is why I also use Hangout a lot, and I also try to join a HIRL when I can.

I have been using G+ every day since late summer 2011 since it was in closed "beta", so as you may understand i 'm very interested in Google+ and the future of G+. (If you are a new Google user, please scroll down to my recommended links, there you will find some useful posts regarding G+).

I like to discuss various themes and topics, regarding society, science, politics, and of course more informal themes and topics.

I like to listen to music, so if you also like or love to listen to music, then you and me have a common interest.   ( Here you can see Scandinavia and Norway's first Hangout on Air Concert and broadcast which was broadcasted 22.09.2012:

https://plus.google.com/104121790462114071634/posts/1XdHifSn3W1 )

I like to watch soccer (Some information about my favourite team; https://plus.google.com/u/0/104121790462114071634/posts/X6VwB7SgrbD )

play various board games and games on computers and console.

I also  like to watch TV-series and movies.

(My favourite TV show is Babylon 5https://plus.google.com/u/0/104121790462114071634/posts/Vd22TvcAv2H )

I do like to train, when the time allows it, and I have been training martial arts. 

And of course, i'm very interested in Google+, Google+ Hangout, and Hangout on Air (HOA).

For more information about me, see further down, check out my recommended links, and try to join a hangout with me. 

If you are new  here on G+, here is a good advice from me to you;  Please fill out your profile, and be active, honest, engaging, and share your thoughts, your interest, etc. 


Norwegian:

Hei!

Jeg er en person som liker å bli kjent med nye mennesker, og jeg bruker G+ nettopp på grunn av dette.

Google+ med spesielt kretser, og muligheten til hangouts er ypperlig om man ønsker å prate og komme i kontakt med nye mennesker. 

Er Google+ et ukjent landskap for deg? 

Kanskje du tidligere er vant med å bruke et annet sosialt medium?  

Da anbefaler jeg deg, og håper du leser denne norske innføringsposten, som kan være til hjelp, og som gir nyttige G+ tips:

https://plus.google.com/u/0/104121790462114071634/posts/eH1UuH6RmnQ

Så, her kan du se noen videoopptak og noen bilder fra skandinavia og Norges aller første Hangout on Air konsert og hangoutsending som ble kombinert med en HIRL, fra 22. september 2012:

https://plus.google.com/104121790462114071634/posts/1XdHifSn3W1

Så nå som du har sett og lest disse postene, her er også noen viktige nybegynnertips til deg;

- Du kan gjerne starte med å fylle ut din profil slik at folk kan få et inntrykk av hvem du er, og hva du er interessert i.

- Du bør lese litt på hjelpesidene til G+ for en introduksjon til G+ og hvordan en kan bruke det. Det er også mange som ønsker å være til hjelp. Her er for eksempel tre gode innlegg, samt en "how-to" guide, som du kan lese; https://plus.google.com/​​​​​​​​u/0/​​​106393478695568433143/​​​​​​​​posts/fbZJVjtJMZE

http://www.abrighterweb.com/​​​​​​​​google/

(For flere G+ tips, og innføringer på både på engelsk og norsk, se mine anbefalte linker nederst på denne siden. )

- Du bør samtidig begynne å følge folk, opprett kretser du kan plassere dem i, og bla igjennom profilen og streamen deres for å få et bilde av hva de vanligvis poster. Et godt tips er å bruke søkevinduet i G+. Prøv å søke på steder,  ulike tema, interesser, hashtags( # ) og lignende, som du brenner for, eller synes er interessante. Du vil da finne ulike folk som deler eller skriver om dette. Ofte er dette en god måte for å finne folk du kan følge, og kommunisere med. på den måten kan du utforme filtrere strømmene dine som du vil. Her er noen tips for hvordan du kan få mest mulig ut av sirkelorganisering, søk og filtrering av strømmer ved søk og hashtags;

- Om du engasjerer deg, og er aktiv er sjansene større for at du vil få en hyggelig og interessant Google+ hverdag, og du vil oppleve at mulighetene Google + gir deg er mange! 

En god begynnelse er å være vennlig med et åpent sinn i møte med nye mennesker. Det slår sjeldent feil, og åpner opp for nye muligheter!


Så når du allikevel besøker min profil kan du jo gjerne vite dette om meg:

Jeg er sosionom og ble ferdig med min mastergrad i samfunnsarbeid  august 2011.

Jeg liker å diskutere ulike tema både samfunnsrelaterte og faglige, men også de tema som er av mer triviell karakter synes jeg er underholdende å diskutere.

Jeg liker å høre på musikk, men har ikke hatt tid til å "henge" med det siste nye, så har dere noen tips innen for dette er det bare å tipse meg.

Se fotball er noe jeg liker, og da særlig å følge med på Rosenborg Ballklub . (se; https://plus.google.com/u/0/104121790462114071634/posts/X6VwB7SgrbD )

Jeg har også en interesse for gaming, men har ikke vært særlig aktiv de siste åtte årene. Jeg har forøvrig begynt å spille så smått igjen, og spiller det meste alt fra små "mobilspill" til mer pc og konsoll. Strategispill og rollespill er nok sjangerfavorittene.

Gode Brettspill spilles også, og da gjerne innen strategi.

Jeg ser også en del på film, og TV-serier, så om det er noen som har lyst til å diskutere eller vet om noen i typen "must see" så er det bare å tipse.

Trening er den siste interessen jeg velger å trekke frem.Jeg har trent kampsport. Jeg er fortsatt interessert i å trene, men har ikke hatt tid til dette det siste året. Har forøvrig tatt dette opp igjen etter at studiene ble ferdig.

Legg meg gjerne i en krets, både om du deler noe av mine interesser men også om du bare vil bli kjent og prate eller diskutere i en hangout.

Ballong galleriet / Ballongdekor AS er en liten ballongbutikk i Vågsbunnen i Bergen sentrum som er verdt et besøk dersom du er på utkikk etter ballonger/gassballonger til fest, bursdag eller andre markeringer. Butikken yter god kundeservice og prisen er overkommelig.

Skeidar Laguneparken ligger omlag 50-100 meter fra Lagunen Storsenter. Butikken har et har et godt utvalg av møbler og interiørprodukter, og prisene variere fra lav til middels høy. Dessverre erfarer jeg at de har svært dårlig kundeservice dersom det oppstår uventede utfordringer som når varen ikke kommer til avtalt tid. Det er dessverre slik at Skeidar har gode selgere, men at selgerne er dårlig på oppfølging, kommunikasjon med kunden, samt lite løsningsorientert når varen er betalt og det oppstår uventede hendelser eller endringer. Dersom kundeservice hadde vært bedre ville jeg anbefalt denne butikken.

The blue stone is an artwork which has turned out to become The meeting/waiting spot for many of Bergen's inhabitants. This is mainly because of Its location in the city centre and because it is easy to spot. If you like to observe social behavior and cultural differences, you can try to stand on the Blue Stone or standing in the area close to it for 30 minutes or so..

Vinmonopolet i Bergen sentrum er et såkalt "spesial Vinmonopol". Dette vinmonopolet har et stort utvalg innen alkoholholdige drikker som vin, sterkøl og brennevin. For de som ønsker alkoholfrie alternativer vil du også finne dette. De bestiller gjerne inn det du måtte ønske dersom du ønsker noe de ikke har og om du er villig til å kjøpe et visst antall. Betjeningen er hjelpsomme og serviceinnstilt.

This is a place which is a "must" to visit, if you own a Nespresso Coffee maker. I guess the shop is a "standard" Nespresso shop, but compared to other shops/stores in Bergen city, this place has a great customer service, which is "a plus" ! The staff is very service minded and may spend some time with you to talk about Coffee. The staff give you coffee recommendations if you ask, and will explain the details in the "coffee world" if you ask them or if you are interested in coffee. In other words a place you can spend some time looking , taste different types of Nespresso coffee , talk about coffee and spend some money .

BABEL Bar is located at the second floor at Radisson Blu Hotel Norge, Bergen. You can also access the bar from the street. From my point of view, this is the best cocktail bar in Bergen. The drinks is fantastic, and the bartenders service minded. Babel is a perfect place to enjoy good drinks. They serve good beer as well. If you choose to stand by the bar counter while the bartenders preparing/mixing your drinks, you will see that they know what they are doing. Two of my favourite drinks at Babel is their "Double smoked whisky sour." And their cocktail named "Kate Moss " If you visit Bergen city centre this is a bar you should try to visit.

Starbucks Kjøttbasaren er den første Starbucks kaffebaren i Bergen. Dessverre var den for meg en noe skuffende opplevelse kaffemessig de 3 gangene jeg har besøkt Starbucks Kjøttbasaren, særlig i forhold til de forventningene jeg hadde, med tanke på opplevelser jeg har hatt på andre Starbucks kaffebarer. Det kan hende jeg var uheldig de gangene jeg besøkte dette stedet, men kaffen var ikke like god som man kan få på Starbucks i andre land. På den positive siden er det en trivelig kaffebar, med særpreg på hvordan den ser ut innvendig. Men det er vanskelig å få ledige bord, mye grunnet den sentrale plasseringen den har i nærheten av Bryggen i Bergen. Dersom du liker kaffe og vil ha noe innen for disse standardkonseptene, kan den andre Starbuks Kaffebaren eller Wayne's Coffee på Exhibition kjøpesener være et bedre alternativ. Dersom du er ute etter en god smaksopplevelse der du kan oppdage nye smaker, kan de andre små kaffebarene i Bergen være verdt å sjekke ut. Starbucks Kjøttbasaren er ikke dårlig, men den er ikke i toppen heller når det kommer til kaffebarer i Bergen.
