Separating the chaff from the Google+ wheat

Splitting up Google+ seems to be the horror scenario. 

Google+ as we know it will not be torn apart, just because some parts of it will get more attention at the time being. I don't think for an average user there will be any big difference. 

Google Drive was split into Docs, Sheets, Slides and Forms which can be used separately but it didn't kill or spoil the product, right? There's still the Google Drive for those who want the whole caboodle...

There is an almighty uproar about Google+ - again. The tech publications are having a field day collecting clicks as Google+ users and the great public try to separate the chaff from the wheat. This is where it started:  +...

I suspect they are doing the same thing they have done before.  When it was originally launched, when you signed up for a g-mail account you automatically had to create a G+ profile.  That was not popular and there are still G+ profiles with nothing ever posted because of that.  They are probably just going to offer users that don't wan the whole package the option to just use Hangouts or Photos.   Those that use the entire package probably won't see much difference.

I also agree with +Miles Bader regarding the comments from many journalist that don't even use G+.  Of course it looks like a ghost town if you just show up out of the blue without taking the time to seek out interesting people or communities to follow.  At least it isn't a continuous stream of cat videos and re-shared click bait!  If certain features on G+ keep those folks away... PLEASE DON'T CHANGE THAT.

An important part of Google+.

#Googleplus     #Identity  
Sign in to other sites using Google

You may see "Google+ Sign-In" on third party websites, mobile apps, games, or other online services (generally referred to as “apps”). When you do, you can use your Google username and password to sign in, instead of creating a new username and password.

And don't worry, you can control what information is shared with the site and what information others see.

If you haven’t connected any apps to Google+, that means you haven't signed in to any apps using Google+ Sign-In. That might include things like games, music, or social media sites...

Learn more at Google+ Help:

Fow website owners:

"Google+ Sign-In increases conversions by reducing the burden and friction of login—particularly for mobile users—all while helping users keep their accounts secure.

With minimal effort, you can add a trusted registration system that's familiar to users and consistent across devices.

Google+ Sign-In lets users skip high drop-off registration forms and avoid having to remember yet another username and password. This makes registration faster and more secure, and reduces support costs for forgotten usernames and passwords."

I have even emailed websites who lack a Google sign-in button, while providing a Facebook or even sometimes a Twitter sign-in button, to request a Google sign-in button as well. Too bad those sites rarely ever answer...

Google+ is not dead, long live the Stream!

Apparently today is the day that we claim Google+ is dead, since it's being referred to as Google Stream, Google Photos and Hangouts. It's really just media fluff, in my opinion.

The social stream on Google+ has been referred to as a stream since day one here, 3 and a half years ago. Hell the UI used to say 'Stream'. In fact, when talking active users, Google always referred to those users as active users in the Stream.

If Google+ is rebranded to Stream, no one should care. It's not going anywhere. Facebook was branded after a few years too. It used to be called The Facebook. Though I hate to compare the two networks as they're vastly different. The name of the platform should not matter. It's the community that makes the platform.

As for Google+ being decompartmentalized, that's fine by me. I use all 3 areas: Photos for storage and editing, Hangouts for communicating, and the Stream for staying up to date with news, communicating with friends, and sharing my thoughts to the world.

In the end you should all follow me on Twitter at because we all know that Google+ has been a ghost town for years.

Just kidding. Long live the best social network on the planet. Google+ changed my life and helped fuel my Android reporting passion.

Seriously though, follow me on Twitter, just in case. And Instagram too:@derekmross.

American Airlines To Phase Out Complimentary Cabin Pressurization

"Explaining that the costs of the service have grown too high in recent years, American Airlines announced Tuesday that it will no longer offer free cabin pressurization to passengers starting March 15.

“Unfortunately, to stay competitive as a legacy carrier in today’s air travel market, it no longer makes economic sense for us to provide breathable air at altitude,” said American Airlines CEO Doug Parker, noting that despite the cutbacks, air pressurization would still be available to first- and business-class travelers as well as those willing to pay an additional fee.

“While we regret any altitude sickness, blood problems, dimmed vision, or hyperventilation that may result from air pressure less than a third normal levels, we remind our customers that such effects will diminish as soon as the aircraft descends below 10,000 feet.”

Parker added that the company is also planning to discontinue complimentary landing gear on flights under four hours."

This is exciting;
I'm really looking forward to the Photos as a product

Please +Bradley Horowitz could we get a proper photo editor for desktop? Like the Creative Kit was...

Signing photos inside Google+, making nicer memes than it's possible now, adding fun stuff like hats, gift boxes and seasonal enhancements...

I haven't really been using the current Photos editor because I see it like the Instagram filters: Fun in a mobile device - for hiding the flaws in bad photos.

I wrote a rant last year:

#Photos     #Googleplus     #Changes  
Just wanted to confirm that the rumors are true -- I’m excited to be running Google’s Photos and Streams products!  It’s important to me that these changes are properly understood to be positive improvements to both our products and how they reach users.

I'm not quite sure about everything he writes, that's to be seen.
This is the best of the recent speculative articles: the writer actually knows his Google+!
I don't agree with quite everything but he's on the right track...

Google+ as We Knew It Is Dead, But Google Is Still a Social Network

A snippet:

"Google as a social network is very much alive. Pichai told Forbes that Google+ was always at least as much about identity as socializing—the goal was to connect and cohere who you are across all its different products.

In that sense, Google+ worked; from your horrifically racist YouTube comments to your Blogger blog to your Gmail, you’re the same person everywhere. That helps Google know more about you so that it can place more and better ads in front of you. And it makes your social experience more cohesive.

The difference with these changes is that your social, interactive experience isn’t relegated to a single screen with too much white space and not enough people.

It’s everywhere, on every platform, based around what we want to share, where, and with whom. And it makes automatic GIFs out of your photos. If that can’t be a successful social network, well, I don’t know what can..."

I live in Jyväskylä, Finland.  Have visited about 450 destinations in 46 countries.  Used to work as a tourguide in several countries for 8 years absorbing history and present day culture, then as a production  & sales manager in a leading travel agency. Have been lecturing and coaching a lot.

I like languages very much (nobody speaks Finnish :-) and here is a list of those that I speak / understand, starting with the most fluent:

  • Finnish, English, Swedish, Spanish, Carelian
  • Italian, French, German, Portuguese
Cannot read or write but have some verbal skills:
  • Greek, Thai, Arabic

Tarvitsetko Social media community manageria hoitamaan Google+ -sivuasi?

Mistä on kyse, Jaana Nyström?

Kuinka minusta tuli kouluttaja sekä yhteisömanageri:

Ryhdyin yrittäjäksi "vanhoilla päivillä" eli viisikymppisenä ja vaihdoin kertaheitolla ihan eri alalle kuin missä olin viettänyt viimeiset 23 vuotta -> matkailu.

Kiinnostuin sosiaalisesta mediasta varsinkin pienyrittäjien näkökulmasta: Ryhdyin miettimään jo omankin yritykseni kannalta kuinka olisi mahdollista saada some-näkyvyyttä ihan ilman mainosbudjettia tai rahankäyttöä. Valtavasti opiskeltavaa on edelleen, homma muuttuu melkein joka päivä: Uutta tulee mutta jotkut parhaat pysyvät.

Olen erikoistunut Google+ -alustaan: En edes sano some-alustaan koska minulle Plussa on työkalu.
Olen Suomen seuratuin Nobody - Plussan puolella.

Tässä on hyvä haastatteluvideo joka varmaan kertoo olennaisen:
