This is probably shocking to those on Google+, but +Vic Gundotra is leaving Google, but there's no announcement on his next move. +Dan Besbris is said to be taking over. Great report by Re/code's +Kara Swisher and +Liz Gannes. 
The high-profile and powerful exec at the search giant will leave immediately, but has no plans to land elsewhere as yet.

Getting nostaligic about my last trip to #Peru -- it was a great adventure to Lima, Cuzco, and Machu Picchu. Here's a photo of the town square in Cuzco right when we got into town. It's quite serene and a lively town. Yeah, the high altitude is a bummer, but it's absolutely magical.

Remember that great panoramic shot of #NewYorkCity  from atop the #WorldTradeCenter in +TIME magazine? Well +PetaPixel has the story how that incredible photo came to be. The photographer +Mike Franz gave a look at the work that went into it. Simply astonishing...

Here's the new #Flickr 3.0 for Android and iOS (coming soon). From a quick look, version 3.0 appears pretty interesting. The new features: Being able to capture HD videos on the app, upload it and use the same live filters as photos, a smarter search with auto-tagging, improved navigation and sharing experience, improved photo data, and more.

Also worth reading this #TechCrunch  article by +Matthew Panzarino on how Flickr 3.0 incorporates several of #Yahoo 's acquisitions:

Attention brands on Google+: If you have a page with more than 1,000 followers, #Google  will let you create +Post Ads, promote Hangouts on Air along with automatically promote your posts.

There are a few requirements though -- obviously need 1,000 followers, but have posts containing relevant content AND you've opted in share endorsements for G+ pages.

Is this a win for brands?

Fascinating read in Fast Company about #GoogleX.

"[Google] X is tasked with making actual objects that interact with the physical world, which to a certain extent gives logical coherence to the four main projects that have so far emerged from X: driverless cars, Google Glass, high-­altitude Wi-Fi balloons, and glucose-monitoring contact lenses. Mostly, X seeks out people who want to build stuff, and who won't get easily daunted."
