Google Spaces - First Impression

Google's new communication tool, intended for small groups, appears to be a combination of a stripped-down version of Classroom, G+ Communities and G+. In fact, if you look in the settings you can manage your name and photo - which takes you to your G+ profile.

You can share links to your "space", which is visible to the world, but to join in the conversation you must have a Google account. Now, I haven't spent a lot of time with it, but I have to ask: What would I use this for? Frankly, Google Groups would be a better option and I can invite anyone with an email - no Google account required.

What would you use this for?

https://spaces.google.com/
Create a space, instantly. Comic books, tiny homes, Paris trip, study group? Just one tap to make a Space about any topic. Invite friends in a snap. Get the right people in each Space with a quick link via messaging, email, or whatever. Share all the things. With Google Search and YouTube built ...

I am regularly asked for recommendations on different tools, training, resources and services available to blogging. People particularly want to know what tools I use to run my blogs. As a result I’ve put together a list of recommended blogging resources that I’ve either personally used (in most cases) or ...more

Heads Up If you still depend on gplus.to Url Shortener





Thank you for the Tip +Dylan Cuffy​ and +Peggy K

Heads up! If you still depend on gplus.to as your Plus link shortener...

then please be aware that it has been offline for the past two or so weeks—and still is at this writing (with a 500 error now thrown into the mix). Google search doesn't even index the domain anymore, and Archive.org cannot access it due to robots.txt...to the point where archive.is/brSGK is your go-to. (I've been actively keeping track since the weekend of April 23–24.)

One +Chris Lang by name offered this premonition, way back in G+'s early days (https://plus.google.com/+ChrisLang/posts/LEVyJgzPbgk, 23/7/2011):

"The problem is that it is owned by some ISP in Turkey. I don't care to trust incoming links to my Google profile to God knows who."

For those who still want to rely on a shortener, look no further than the long-running tinyurl.com in the meantime. Just add in your long G+ URL (e.g. https://plus.google.com/u/0/103283675665371670119/posts), followed by the custom alias below it (Plus[USERNAME] — just replace [USERNAME] with your preferred handle). If you have a G+.to URL lying around in your Web profiles, now is the time to start changing them and/or converting; I'll do that as soon as time permits.

As for the service itself, I don't know how soon it'll return; the webmasters, as usual, cannot be contacted. Even though their +Gplus.to page is still there—with no posts since November 2011! If it miraculously does, I'll let you know.

Surprised that no other users have brought it up till I came in. Good thing +CircleCount and +All my + remain unscathed for this.

One year ago, we introduced Google+ Collections: a platform for curating and sharing the coolest content about anything and everything that you're into. From cats in Tokyo (https://goo.gl/YV1zHg), to original poetry (https://goo.gl/OA94cc), to Copenhagen street photography (https://goo.gl/PzS9ue) -- you've created and shared Collections about everything under the sun (https://goo.gl/JqdVzO). Today, help celebrate one full year by sharing your favorite Collection or making a new one with the tag #CollectionsTurn1. Cheers (https://goo.gl/jYvMZ0) to more years of #DiscoveringAmazingThings.

How to disable Google Spaces notifications under the bell

If you are using the new Google Spaces, you may be getting a flood of notifications. It's easy to disable those notifications under the bell.

1. Sign in to your Google account

2. Click the notification bell (or circle) at top right

3. Click the gear icon at top left of the notification panel

4. De-select Spaces

This should not affect notifications on your mobile device.

Change notification settings for a specific Space or disable all push notifications :

Well written content and engaging images are great things, but if they are your only focus, you are missing a big piece of the puzzle: typography.
