Google Top Contributor +Tim Capper says "So it would seem that if an algo does not catch this, then even a human report (twice) gets overlooked." - I think "overlooked" is being too kind, and "ignored" is more accurate.
Are Google My Business Guidelines, spam algos and reporting systems working?

I think not, but I’ll let you be the judge of that.

Good example, Tim...

In the middle you say "So it would seem that if an algo does not catch this, then even a human report (twice) gets overlooked...." but I think "overlooked' is the wrong word, and "ignored" is more accurate. It's 2017, and there's just no excuse for this anymore...

Ahhhhh, so that's how you do it! Confirmed - yep, it works.

Most +Alexa apps are terrible, like the calendar for instance, that cannot even separate my own calendar and my wife's for each of our Alexa profiles. When I'm on my profile and ask, "Alexa, what's on my calendar today?" reads me the stuff from each persons calendar. How useless.
For starters, 69 percent of the 7,000-plus Alexa “Skills” — voice apps, if you will — have zero or one customer review, signaling low usage.

What’s more, when developers for Alexa and its competitor, Google Assistant, do get someone to enable a voice app, there’s only a 3 percent chance, on average, that the person will be an active user by Week 2, according to the report. (There are outliers that have Week 2 retention rates of more than 20 percent.) For comparison’s sake, Android and iOS apps have average retention rates of 13 percent and 11 percent, respectively, one week after first use.

Nice analogy, +PaulineJakober - "That’s like saying to a lost traveler, “Since you don’t have a GPS, I’m going to draw this map on a napkin, and I’m really not familiar with the area, but [shrug] it’s better than not having any directions at all!”"

This is good news for +Moz subscribers, and kudos for adding the feature, but honestly, this reflects pretty poorly on +Google Small Business. People shouldn't have to pay for third party service to be notified when someone changes their listing,

Facebook has disabled the ability to save an audience from their Audience Insights tool.

I wrote this post a month ago when I thought it was a bug, but, I've been remotely logged in to enough Facebook ad accounts to think that it's just not working for anyone any more, and that's a shame.

Can you build and save an audience from Audience Insights? Bet not.
