We all knew this was coming, the question was when? As of April the 21st of 2015 Google will roll out its new mobile-friendly ranking system, giving webmasters and SEO's more time to comply.
Google has also made the ability to identify mobile-usability issues easier with their mobile friendly test: http://goo.gl/9mBbHd , along with the previously available mobile-usability reports in Webmaster Tools.
Sites that fail to conform are likely to lose visibility to other more mobile compliant websites, as search engines like Google embrace the now heavily mobile world.
Google+ Chief Architect says there'll be "no big user-facing changes" connected to the reorganization of G+, Photos, and Hangouts that we've been hearing about over the past several days. ¹
His full comment: ²
A lot of misunderstanding and speculation. :) The internal org was renamed "Photos and Streams," because Sundar likes org names that match what the teams do. And since our org includes Photos, Google+, Blogger, and News, there you have photos, plus several streams of content.
No big user-facing changes tied to this at all.
So stand down, gravediggers. This "ghost town" is still alive and kickin', and we ghosts aren't goin' anywhere anytime soon.
