Data at your fingertips - Announcing the Google Analytics app for iOS

At Google, we want to build tools that help you stay connected no matter where you are. Whether you’re in the boardroom, at a live event, or even a day at the beach: having access to Analytics at your fingertips is important. That’s why we previously launched an Android app for Google Analytics (http://goo.gl/Aw3Nrq) that we’re excited has been downloaded by more than 1 million users to date. We’ve been listening to your feedback and hear you loud and clear: you want an iPhone version too. So we are pleased to announce the launch of a Google Analytics app for iOS. 

Visit iTunes App Store  to download and install the app to keep up with your data anytime, anywhere: http://goo.gl/rdQY0F

With the Google Analytics App for iOS, you can access the same accounts and profiles you see when you open Analytics from a desktop browser, but you’ll also see reports that are optimized for your phone. Just like the Android app, the iOS app has some neat features, including:

-A completely redesigned, mobile-optimized look and feel
-Side navigation that mirrors Google Analytics on the web for quick access to reports
-Specialized reporting for web and app views (profiles)
-An Overview screen summarizing key metrics from each report 
-Deeper analysis via dimension-based drill down in most reports
-Better Real-Time reporting
-Advanced Segments to further analyze your data

Happy Analyzing (on-the-go!).

Why Comments on Google+ Posts Is Now Even More Important

Anyone active on social media wants comments on their posts, but a change on Google+ now rolling out to users makes that even more important.

The change that began rolling out late yesterday affects posts that are reshares of other posts. Previously, the phrase "originally shared" in the display of the original post being reshared linked to that post. Now it is no longer a link.

Instead, there is now only a link to the original post if it had comments. That link now appears at the bottom of the display of the post being reshared (which now is highlighted in a gray box.)

Look at the example below. In this case I had reshared a post by +Antoine Carriere. But Antoine's post had never received any comments. So it has no link below the post.

Why Did Google Make This Change?
My speculation is that Google+ wants to "reward" or promote the version of content that is getting engagement. If the original post has comments, now the reader is alerted to that fact, and clicking on that notice enables one to get to that discussion.

In other words, for Google+, discussion trumps time priority. In Google+'s valuation, a post is valuable not because it was shared first, but because it is generating discussion.

Google+ Communism
This devaluing of "original ownership" has actually always been a part of the very structure of Google+. I observed early on, for example, that a reshare of one's post by a higher authority profile would usually outrank the original in Google Search. (See http://stonet.co/1eZujxB). 

So in the Google+ world battles over who shared something first (as if he or she were "owner" of the share) are meaningless. Google+ is putting the emphasis on community, and community happens where the discussion happens.

In this week’s Notary Bulletin, we have an explanation of the Certified Signing Specialist Code of Conduct: Guiding Principle 5. http://bit.ly/1qp3kQW
Guiding Principle 5 of the Certified Signing Specialist Code of Conduct reads: “The Certified Signing Specialist will not perform an illegal, deceptive or harmful act in connection with a signing assignment and will report any suspicious activity to the closing agent handling the transaction.”
