It's always been a Stream.

Know why?
Cause way back when...(the time that +Derek Ross talks about here) the posts would flow on the screen like a stream.

Then some people complained that they're missing posts... that it's moving too fast.. and so the Stream stopped and a new blue box appeared with all the new posts that have accumulated since the last time you visited the Plus-river...

So people. Nothing to look at here. Keep moving on...

Google+ is not dead, long live the Stream!

Apparently today is the day that we claim Google+ is dead, since it's being referred to as Google Stream, Google Photos and Hangouts. It's really just media fluff, in my opinion.

The social stream on Google+ has been referred to as a stream since day one here, 3 and a half years ago. Hell the UI used to say 'Stream'. In fact, when talking active users, Google always referred to those users as active users in the Stream.

If Google+ is rebranded to Stream, no one should care. It's not going anywhere. Facebook was branded after a few years too. It used to be called The Facebook. Though I hate to compare the two networks as they're vastly different. The name of the platform should not matter. It's the community that makes the platform.

As for Google+ being decompartmentalized, that's fine by me. I use all 3 areas: Photos for storage and editing, Hangouts for communicating, and the Stream for staying up to date with news, communicating with friends, and sharing my thoughts to the world.

In the end you should all follow me on Twitter at because we all know that Google+ has been a ghost town for years.

Just kidding. Long live the best social network on the planet. Google+ changed my life and helped fuel my Android reporting passion.

Seriously though, follow me on Twitter, just in case. And Instagram too:@derekmross.

My son asked Google for a "Fast Breakfast" thinking it'll reply with close by restaurants...

Wise Google offered these instead - 34 Healthy Breakfasts for Busy Mornings.

Or as I keep telling him - you want something fast and healthy? Make it yourself. :)

We picked 34 of the best, healthiest breakfast options (perfect for packing as snacks too)!

Egypt court puts Hamas on terrorist list

An Egyptian court has listed the Palestinian group Hamas as a terrorist organisation, accusing it of supporting an insurgency in northern Sinai.

The court ruling on Saturday effectively bans Hamas within Egypt, a wider verdict that January's censure of its armed wing.

"It has been proven without any doubt that the movement has committed acts of sabotage, assassinations and the killing of innocent civilians and members of the armed forces and police in Egypt," Judge Mohamed el-Sayed said, according to state news agency Mena.

An Egyptian court designates the Palestinian group Hamas as a terrorist organisation, accusing it of supporting an insurgency in northern Sinai.

+Yifat Cohen I remember that post, even commented. Also then I can't recall hearing about it in the news.
Its amazing how selective the news is, which makes it so hard to believe anything...

And if +Moritz Tolxdorff says that good things are coming, I believe him.

Congrats Bradley!!
Looking forward to working with you.
Just wanted to confirm that the rumors are true -- I’m excited to be running Google’s Photos and Streams products!  It’s important to me that these changes are properly understood to be positive improvements to both our products and how they reach users.

You. A tree.

Not sure how I feel about this... What if I turn into a fruit tree.. and someone eats my apples.. Is that cannibalism?
Would You "Tree-ify" Yourself When You Die?

Sure, you could creep yourself with this concept, but from another perspective, it's quite beautiful ... and better for the planet. Would you do it? Would you arborize yourself? 

intransitive verb :  to branch freely and repeatedly

#death   #trees   #nature   #sustainability

The idea of coming full circle and returning whence we came is captured perfectly by this beautiful new burial method developed in Italy. The Capsula Mundi project by designers Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel has developed an organic, biodegradable burial capsule that will turn the deceased's body into nutrients for a tree that will grow out of their remains.

Hi, I'm Yifat - Your G+GoTo Gal, and I am passionate about the possibilities Google plus brings to our lives and to our business. You can find me discussing Google+ strategies, Google+ marketing, engagement and relationship building on my weekly hangout show - Unscripted!

But what rocks my boat, what really gets me going, is the relationships I’ve found here - on Google+. I have met amazing people who become a new family to me and with whom I now spend much of my time. These relationships and what they brought with them, are the reason I am so passionate about Google+ and I can not wait for you to experience this level of engagement, this sense of community and this depth of conversation and ideas. They will change your life for the better. Trust me on that.

I walk my talk

I am now making a living coaching, engaging and speaking about the topic I am most passionate about - Google plus and Google plus hangouts, and I can show you how to do the same: How to turn your passion into real income.

----- ★ღ ----- Ah, but you want to know more about me...? ----- ★ღ -- 

I’m a lover. I love life. I love my amazing husband and my incredibly cute son. I love to laugh, eat, try new things, experiment, travel (oh boy, do I love to travel). I love to push my own limits. I love to argue. I love movies and learning new things. I love compliments. I love to play. I love to read. I love to be right. I love to be loved and I really love to love. 

My Myers Briggs is ENTP (Extravert, iNtuitive, Thinking, Perceiving ), so before you're shocked by my perverse sense of humor or if you want to understand why I enjoy playing devil's advocate, read this.

Google+ marketing is the 2nd love of my life (family comes in #1). I spend most of my time playing with it and showing others how to succeed in it. I love talking about it, figuring out how it works and then how to break it, discussing it with other people and finding solutions to common problems. I own a social media marketing company, Motech Marketing and I love helping people accomplish their online goals easily and quickly. 

I really love what I do. I work from home, with people that are fun to be around and a pleasure to collaborate with. I always meet new people that I can service and I just love helping them realize how easy it is to increase their online visibility and profits.

Dr. Murphy is the best chiropractor I've ever worked with. Not only is he knowledgeable and kind, but he never has you waiting (which is super important for those of us with busy schedules). He's very flexible with his scheduling as well - always working around your calendar to fit you in. He's working with a great masseuse that is sharing the same office, so that you can get both your chiropractic and massage done with one visit. His fees are reasonable and he'll work with you to get you in and healed even if you don't have insurance. Highly recommended.

If you only work with people who care about your yard just as much as you do, then you work with Chase. He's reliable, honest, reasonably priced and the only thing he leaves you with when he's done is the peace of mind of a job very well done. He's now my goto guy for anything sprinklers.

Remember when you went to your doctor and he knew everything about you, because he KNEW you? Remember how he sat with you, un-rushed, listened to you, gave you his full attention and the best treatment to get you back on your feet in no time? This is how life is with Dr. Stavinoha. If you're looking for someone who's a doctor because he truly enjoys helping and healing and not for any other reason - Dr. Stavinoha is the only doctor you should see. I can't wait till my kid is old enough to see him, since I don't trust anyone else but him.
