Hi +Mark Zuckerberg,

I can see you now have 658,472 followers on here, which is awesome, but your profile seems a little on the quiet side. 

To help you out, here are a few tips to get your started on Google+…

Engagement:
This seems to be very low right now, but that is ok, I’m sure as soon as you start posting people will be plussing like crazy. 

Profile picture:
I noticed your photo is tagged with your name, which is excellent, but you may like to consider a slightly ‘clearer head shot’, as this is best for purposes of Google Authorship (see below).

Cover photo:
You still have the default image - this is a little bit boring, so why not check out some of the ones in the free library?

Verified name/profile:
It is great you have a verified Profile, and shield! How did you get that? Do you know someone at Google or something!? 

Formatting:
Just so you know...
an _ each side of the word/phrase makes it italics
a * either side will make it bold
a - will make it a strikethrough
And you can use them all in combination.

This helps posts look even better.

Linking to your website?
I see in your ‘About Section’ that you ‘make things’. Do you blog? Well, if you link it to your Profile, you may even find your image appearing alongside your content in Google Search (an aspect of something called ‘Google Authorship’, which people seem to love.)

Brand Pages:
Also you may like to set up a Brand Page which you can usually link to a website (using a rel=publisher markup).

Other social networks:
Just to say, I know people are often already heavily invested in other social platforms, such as Twitter and LinkedIn, and the good news is that you can use Friendsplus.me to distribute your Google+ content straight to other social networks too. This is really handy.

YouTube:
I had a quick look and I couldn't find your channel.
You are really missing out as Google+ and YouTube work hand-in-hand. 

And finally…
The people are awesome on Google+; it is a real community.
And know it is ok Mark, even though you may not know anyone to start with, you’ll make new friends in no time.

p.s. Great to see you’ve been on ‘Google’ since Buzz.

AllCast Beta 4

Heads up. Google's latest Chromecast update intentionally breaks AllCast. They disabled 'video_playback' support from the ChromeCast application.

Given that this is the second time they've purposefully removed/disabled[1] the ability to play media from external sources, it confirms some of my suspicions that I have had about the Chromecast developer program:
The policy seems to be a heavy handed approach, where only approved content will be played through the device. The Chromecast will probably not be indie developer friendly. The Google TV team will likely only whitelist media companies.

I'd strongly suggest holding off on buying a Chromecast until we can see how Google chooses to move forward on third party applications. There are also other (open) platforms and stacks that one could buy/support as well. (LeapCast, NodeCast, etc)

Here's the apk, but please note it probably won't work.

Police were called after Star Wars fans clashed with Doctor Who fans at a science fiction convention in Norwich. The two rival groups were advised to "keep out of each other's way": http://bbc.in/13xpBSY

They've done what now? Sony releases QX100 and QX10 camera modules for smartphones - we've organized all of our related content right here:

Yet another example why the Android security is flawed and should be fixed soon. Now it is not a shady app from an unknown company that abuses our privacy...
Users should have control about basic permissions after an app is installed (similar to what was added to iOS not long ago). This way we could install the FB app and then block it from having any access to our contacts list.

Facebook's Android app has been found to automatically send user phone numbers back to the company's servers. Facebook says it has deleted the numbers from its servers.

Now that we are after the BadNews malware episode I think Google should re-think the Android permission model where it is an all-or-nothing deal. You see all the permissions required by an app before installing and your only choice is to install or not. I think the latest iOS permission model where you can revoke certain permissions (such as GPS, contacts access etc.) after the app was installed makes more sense. I may choose to download a game but not allow it to access my contacts (which may be legitimate use of allowing you to invite your friends).

What do you think?
