There are a few filters you can use in Google+ photo searches, but I can't seem to find one for filtering photos that have +1's. This would be a great way to quickly access your best photos. You could have your family and friends go through your shared albums and +1 anything that they like, and then you could filter out photos that don't meet a certain threshold of +1's (show me all photos that have more than 3 +1's).
Google+ Photos has some filters you can use to refine your search results. Just click the search box or the small arrow icon and you can choose the source of the photos (Auto Backup, Hangouts, Google Drive, posts) or the type...

GOOGLE FIBER COMING TO PORTLAND!
 
Today we’ve invited 34 cities in nine metro areas around the U.S. to work with us to explore what it would take to bring them +Google Fiber. In the coming months, we'll work with each city's leaders on a joint planning process to map out a Google Fiber network in detail and assess potential challenges to bringing 100x faster Internet to these communities. We aim to provide updates about which of these cities will be getting Google Fiber at the end of the year. Learn more: http://goo.gl/tMg6F9

Good place to go if you are starving. If you want to spend quality time with people, don't go here as everyone is getting up constantly to get food. The food is OK, but not awesome.

Portion sizes were smaller than expected. Price was higher than expected. Poor value. Food tasted pretty good. Server was overly pushy to get us to buy more.
