Do you wonder why your posts don't get the same interaction or response as they do on Facebook or Twitter when you use the same format on Google+?

Consider just 2 things:

1. Google has an ass-kicking algorithm to detect and filter-off spam in Communities. Racing about and repeatedly posting the same keyword stuffed post just gets auto-filtered to neverland and then is neverseen.

2. MILLIONS of members of Google+ have quit Facebook because they were sick of spam posts containing no information and were just link-bait ie: #TheBestWeightLoss   #TheEasiestWayToMakeMoney  by clicking through. Google+ users EXPECT something useful in the post and are more likely to click through if you give them value and earn trust with respect and by investing just a little time to create a genuine post.

Resharing for the day shift. Saddened that after all the funding projects I've helped with on Google+ not a single of my followers has joined me to donate to help a 100% Disabled Vet who ran into a $5k home expense he couldn't handle. We've funded drawing tablets, books, CD authoring, studio projects... all important to those individuals, but how many gave all but their life for our country? Please kick-in even $5 if you can.
Hey friends, a Retired Marine buddy of mine just told me about a 100% disabled vet that needs just a little help with repairing his HVAC system via GoFundMe.

Here's the story & link... please help if you can, please share it either way.

Thank you!

Here's some really useful information - I found-out I'd been doing some recycling wrong for years. There's some simple and common mistakes you may be making too. Thanks! +fox6now

Warning, another Google rant ahead! Allo!

Google again reverses a decision, reduces privacy and produces another app that has NO VALUE to me.

At Google I/O privacy was promised and that decision apparently reversed: (Read more about THAT on this post on The Verge http://www.theverge.com/2016/9/21/12994362/allo-privacy-message-logs-google )

WHO is Google developing for, the burgeoning market of 9-10 year olds who're getting phones and need the "assistant" to help them with the logical questions that one or more people in a group conversation couldn't think of or execute themselves?

So much spent to try to replace an app (Hangouts) that large groups of Ingress players are leaving because of it's resource demands/overkill or another name for a chat system that STILL will not satisfy the No-Nonsense Business User. How I longed for the days of "Hey, let's chat." which meant text chat. Or "Hey, let's do a video call." which explained exactly what the product was.

Is Google again "Out-clevering Themselves" with another not-so clever app and even less clever name?

I truly believe Google is outsmarting themselves. With so much data about us all, they know everything... but how to give people what they want. Give me a simple app that is efficient on my system resources and time. You got lucky once with the clever name, take it... run with it... give-up on trying to redo what keeps failing. This company keeps overlooking the thing that made them who they were in the first places. They had millions of webmasters who made money WITH them via AdWords/AdSense. THE ONLY REASON MOST WEBMASTERS PUT GOOGLE SEARCH ON THEIR SITES WAS BECAUSE THEY WERE A BUSINESS PARTNER AND FELT AN AFFINITY TOWARDS/WITH Google. Google keeps veering from what they do/did best and "missing" the mark on so many products or killing the good ones that work.

Quoting Spock: Highly Illogical.

I have to give a big shout-out and thank you to Daryl Stuermer from Genesis for taking the time to sign a bottle of wine for +Kathi Browne to be used to support the cause of fighting Brain Cancer in honor of her brother.

P.S. Daryl went out of his way to do this pre-show (during a very short break after a late soundcheck) before going on-stage Thurs 8/4. He really is that nice and kind of a guy... while also being one of the most talented guitar players in the world.
