Good bye LogMeIn!  Free forever to $100/year for 2 PCs...  LOL  Really?  I'm able to help my family and friends quicker and easier than with LogMeIn and "EVERYTHING" including the Android app has been freely available to do it.  I will definitely recommend my company to invest in this application as there are many useful features that would save them money too!  Faster than any other remote desktop I've used.  TeamViewer ROCKS!

This is my first ever re-share, and only my second truly public share!   The topic is privacy but what's more +Ronnie Bincer seems to have his finger on the G+ pulse.  Thanks Ronnie!
 
Google+ Hashtags and Your Privacy...
Shhhh! Google+ CAN keep a Secret, Twitter can't

I recently published an overview on how to use #Hashtags inside Google+, here's the link for reference: https://plus.google.com/108210288375340023376/posts/focQkGJGgg9

Certain conversations stemming from that post brought up Some Very Important Discoveries re. Google+ Hashtags and Google+ Privacy.

We did some testing and found that using Hashtags in a post that was published to a private group (i.e. a 'limited' post) did not threaten that post's privacy level. If you were not part of the private or limited group, you would not find the 'private post' via a Google+ search for the hashtag.

That makes sense as you would not want your private posts being discovered by random people on Google+ that happen to be searching for various hashtags. Or said another way, Using Google Search with Hashtags, does Not Circumvent the Limited Post Privacy Veil.

We also verified that as you can "open up a private post" for viewing to those you +mention in the comments of the post, you will likewise open up the ability for those 'new invited members' to find the private post via a Google+ Hashtag search.

So If you are using Google+ and its powerful Hashtag feature, You do not need to fear any privacy issues stemming from hashtags! Too bad we can't say that for Twitter and their Recent Privacy Concerns!

Well for everyone that is "happy" about what's missing and so sure that it's gone, never to return, because it simply doesn't make sense; I'm sorry to say but it seems that it will make a comeback.  Okay, I'm not "really" sorry but I do feel for you if, something you thought nothing of is going to, in some way cause you any issues when they put it back.

But for those of us that liked the "Better than a phone" means of knowing that our friends & family were actually available for us to talk to them (and them to us) "instantly", there is Good News!  Status and presence is coming to Hangouts says +Google+ Help 
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+JohnWard/posts/jTYLoTaPJ2H

SO #HANGOUT  and Google will work their magic just like they always have to make it better!  Imagine? The new instant info of "what's been read so far" AND an organized list of people that understand the idea of INSTANT in the presence and status order that shows it!  All wrapped together with Instant Messages, Voice & Video Conferences!  The next best thing is teleportation‎; who knows it may be Google that figures out the details for that too!

#GoogleRocks  I can wait as long as GTalk still works.  It's all good.

Seriously though, wake up and read what some of you have posted, "I didn't use it so it doesn't make sense to have it." I mean, really?  What's the harm in having it then?  OH come now, you know who you are...

Are you really on every one of your devices all the time?  No, maybe two but in reality only one if you're human, there are studies to prove that by-the-way...  Presence, status and device are completely realistic and proven attainable.

Sending a good old fashioned letter through the post office, texting, posting to social sites, emailing and making phone calls all make sense and have their uses and logical times to use them, so should it be, that if I don't use one or more I should pontificate on how they don't make sense?  No!  Keep them all, it's good for people to get together and if it helps some feel more comfortable to get together then all the better.  But "Instant Messaging" and now Hangouts... well eventually, Hangouts will be the way everyone not sitting with each other (okay, there are some girls - and yes, you know who you are too) will initiate conversations.  Why?  Because it just makes sense.

And that's how I spent my Friday night... Thanks for reading.

I've started using google + today. So far it seems that it may be a good way to keep in touch. It let's me talk the way I might in real life because I can address my audience correctly. I hope everyone enjoys my ramblings!! SWEET!

I just discovered that you can now +1 your own posts..?  Also if you take a look in the "All Mail" label in Gmail you'll find all of your G+ stuff too.  For me I found everything except this very first Google+ post.
