How to use Google+ Image Zoom on the web

(h/t +John Nack)
 
Image zooming returns to Google+ Web

By very popular demand, you can now really enjoy the details of high-resolution images shared on Google+ by zooming in via your Web browser. This feature—previously available only via the classic Web experience—is now part of the new G+.

With large images you can start zooming in by:

— Clicking the zoom button
— Tapping the 'Z' key
— Using your mouse wheel (or two-finger drag)
— Double clicking on the photo
— Pinching on the photo (via touchscreen/touchpad)

Once the image is zoomed in, you can:

— Use '+' key and '-' keys (plus without shift) to zoom in/out incrementally
— Use arrow keys to pan around the zoomed image

Same goes if it's qwerty, 111111, or 123456789.

Blogger tip: How to insert emoji, symbols and other special characters

To insert symbols or other characters missing from your keyboard into a post, just click the "Insert special character" smiley icon at the top of the Blogger post editor.

I don't use it to insert emoji, but I find it's handy for adding accented or umlauted letters, bullets and arrows.

For detailed instructions see my blog post:

2016 Ig Nobel Peace Prize lecture: Detecting pseudo-profound bullshit

“It is impossible for someone to lie unless he thinks he
knows the truth. Producing bullshit requires no such conviction.”
– Harry Frankfurt

The 2016 Ig Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Gordon Pennycook, James Allan Cheyne, Nathaniel Barr, Derek Koehler, and Jonathan Fugelsang for their scholarly study called "On the Reception and Detection of Pseudo-Profound Bullshit". This lecture took place on Saturday, September 24th, 2016, two days after the 26th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony.

REFERENCE: "On the Reception and Detection of Pseudo-Profound Bullshit," Gordon Pennycook, James Allan Cheyne, Nathaniel Barr, Derek J. Koehler, and Jonathan A. Fugelsang, Judgment and Decision Making, Vol. 10, No. 6, November 2015, pp. 549–563.

Read the paper: http://www.arts.uwaterloo.ca/~dkoehler/reprints/jdm15923a.pdf

Their conclusion:

Using vagueness or ambiguity to mask a lack of meaningfulness is surely common in political rhetoric, marketing, and even academia (Sokal, 2008). Indeed, as intimated by Frankfurt (2005), bullshitting is something that we likely all engage in to some degree (p. 1): “One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit. Everyone knows this. Each of us contributes his share.” One benefit of gaining a better understanding of how we reject other’s bullshit is that it may teach us to be more cognizant of our own bullshit

+Peggy K I won't leave G+. It just seems a bit odd looking. It's probably designed for mobile more than for desktop. I'm replying from the bell which has the old style.

Google+ Update: Screen Layout Improvements on the web

Better responsive web design:

* Display more posts on smaller screens
* Switch to a 3 column display sooner
* Use new header designs on Communities, Collections and Profiles
* Resize posts more effectively
* And more...

See +Luke Wroblewski's post for details.
 
Screen Layout Improvements
From the start, our new Google+ Web experience was built as a Responsive Web Design (RWD), meaning it adapts to the amount of screen space available within a Web browser by re-sizing images, changing layouts, and more. Recently we had the pleasure of working with Ethan Marcotte (https://ethanmarcotte.com), the originator of RWD, on a number of substantial improvements to how we adapt to different screen sizes on the Google+ Web experience. Starting today, we:

* Display more posts on smaller screens
* Switch to a 3 column display sooner
* Use new header designs on Communities, Collections and Profiles
* Resize posts more effectively
* And more...

To experience these all changes, simply try out the Google+ Web experience on different phones, tablets, laptops, desktops, or just different Web browser window sizes.

And as always, please send us your ideas/issues using our Send Feedback menu item as that's the best way to ensure we'll see them. Thanks~

YouTube correcting inflated lifetime channel view counts

Since January 14, 2017, you may have seen inflated total channel view counts reported on your channel and by third-party services that report view counts. This issue is now fixed and we're working to correct all displayed view counts.

What is NOT affected:

* Revenue or reports

* Subscriber counts on your watch page and channel page

* Video view counts below the player on video watch pages

What IS affected:

* Total number of lifetime channel views listed on your channel's "About" page (this shows views for all your public videos)

* Playlist view counts on Playlist pages

* Channel view count reported by any third-party services that use data from the YouTube data API (such as +Social Blade)

* Your channel's lifetime views and watch time in the YouTube Analytics Watch time report

As this is fixed, you may see lower numbers :(

More information in the +YouTube Help Center:

The Digital Transition: how the Presidential transition works in the social media age

The photos that have been released on WhiteHouse.gov, +Flickr, +Instagram and the video content on +YouTube , +Vimeo, and other White House presences will continue to be available on these platforms with updated usernames and will also be maintained by NARA (+US National Archives).

The process varied from platform to platform:

On Twitter, the Obama administration content that was at @POTUS is now archived @POTOS44 run by NARA. The @POTUS Twitter handle has started fresh with no posts.

The content from @WhiteHouse, @FLOTUS, @PressSec, and @VP are similarly archived.

On Instagram and Facebook there was a similar process, with the incoming White House gaining access to the White House username, URL, and followers, but no content on the timeline. An archive of White House content that was posted to the Obama White House Instagram and Facebook will continue to be accessible to the public at http://Instagram.com/ObamaWhiteHouse and Facebook.com/ObamaWhiteHouse.

The old YouTube content is at https://www.youtube.com/obamawhitehouse

No mention of +The White House on Google+, which is still showing all the Obama administration content.

Read the full article in the Obama Whitehouse archives:
https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/blog/2016/10/31/digital-transition-how-presidential-transition-works-social-media-age

Update 1/21/17: apparently Twitter had some trouble with the transition of followers. See @jack's tweets:
https://twitter.com/jack/status/822876781631901698

Also see +Vimeo s post:
https://vimeo.com/blog/post/now-playing-8-years-of-obama-fully-archived?utm_source=social&utm_campaign=9918

In assisting WhiteHouse with its digital transition, we’ve transitioned the POTUS Flickr account. For more info: http://bit.ly/2jI4zAZ 
Take a look at how we plan to preserve and pass on the digital history of the Obama administration.
