What changed since last time?
I am no longer using Categories, they are broken. Multiple posts to Categories get collapsed. They hardly show up in the 'All' stream. If you ever delete a Category, all posts in it are being deleted instead of being moved to 'Public' or another Category.
If you wanted parts of my content, but not all of it - I am sorry. I tried but the system is too broken.
This is a support post. If you have questions, ask them in the comments below. I will try to answer, and I may or may not delete question and answers after some time, depending on the permanent value of our conversation for other readers.
I am German, and I am posting a lot of content in german language. Some posts are in english, but overall I am convinced that there is a sufficient amount of english content on Google plus, so I do see no pressing need to add to that.
I am at the moment working on Openstack at SysEleven, an ecommerce hosting company in Berlin, Germany. I used to work at Booking.com in Amsterdam working on databases, at MySQL AB as a consultant, at web.de in Karlsruhe as a Security Engineer and at NetUSE AG in Kiel in various roles. I wrote Linux HOWTO documents, contributed to PHP, Spamassassin and many other projects. I do speak on conferences.
I am a high volume poster. Many of the posts are reshares. If you are new to Google plus, and follow me that may mean I am about to spam your stream.
You did delete my comment
I probably did.
I have a lot of followers, and many read the comments. I want to make that a worthwhile experience. So a comment that does not contribute to a meaningful discussion is likely to be deleted - 'me too', 'awesome post', 'haha funny' is likely to go.
I don't hate you, and I didn't dislike your comment. I just thought that it was a waste of time for some 50k+ other people, because it was redundant. Don't take it personally. You can always reshare my article and comment on it in your stream (and post a link to that as a comment to my article, explaining and inviting people to come over, I will never delete that).
I am a customer of http://friendsplus.me, and I am using that to reshare stuff to Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr. You can follow me there, but discussion happens here. My identities on other social services are presence and reshare only, I do not really exist as a person over there.
Der Rest meiner anno damals vorgebrachten Kritik/ Anmerkungen zu G+ bleibt weiterhin bestehen.
Und ob man sich als Contentanbieter die Einteilung und Einsortierung in Sammlungen zumuten will - ???
