As we near Google+'s 5th birthday, we look back on a few favorite moments from the last five years. Remember when the +Dalai Lama and +Archbishop Desmond Mpilo Tutu hung out on Google+? The world watched as two prominent voices for peace talked, laughed, and celebrated live despite being thousands of miles apart. #Gplus5
 
Here is the video of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu recorded from their live interaction from South Africa and India on October 8, 2011, as part of the Inaugural Desmond Tutu Peace Lecture

Meet Create Member +Nick Moore

"Of all the fun I have on Google+, 'The CBC' is where my heart lies. With a 35 year history of reading comics it's great to have a little corner of the internet to geek out in. With a great team of Moderators, support from DC, Marvel, and Valiant amongst other awesome publishers, and simply the best of community members it's great to hang out there every day. Read comics, make comics, love comics... you're in!"

Meet Create Member +Stefan Bäurle

"Stefan Bäurle lives in beautiful Northern California. He is particularly interested in making photos of the Pacific, trees, and architecture. Since it is mostly outdoors, it allows him to combine his love of photography with his other passion for hiking. Almost all of his work is converted to monochrome, because it facilitates focusing on the light, shapes, surfaces, structures, patterns, and contrasts. "

Check out our favorite Collections by Stephen: Trees (https://plus.google.com/collection/Mcnsb) and Pacific Coast Long Exposure Photography (https://plus.google.com/collection/olItb).

Thanks for all of your product feedback! Here's an update from +Luke Wroblewski on how it has been integrated to improve your experiences on G+. More to come!
 
6 Months of Google+ Updates
Six months ago, we launched an all-new version of Google+ on iOS, a big update to our Android app, and a preview of our new experience Web. At that time (https://plus.google.com/u/0/+LukeWroblewski/posts/jJvNS3mwxyv) I mentioned: "While this is an exciting new beginning for us, we’re definitely not done yet."

Since then we've fixed 4,149 bugs, addressed 253 accessibility issues, and launched 19 Web updates, 12 Android app updates, and 7 iOS app updates. Thanks to all of you for the feedback you sent, which helped guide us through all these launches.

While I'm sure you have additional fixes/issues that we need to address next, I just wanted to pause for a moment and thank our teams (and you!) for all the help over the past six months.

So... thanks~

Meet Create Member +Wendy Baker

"I am Wendy Baker. I'm a professional fine art photographer living in Fair Oaks, California. I've been on Google+ since 2011 and have recently joined Create.

This image represents my work and is special to me because I created it to express what I could not say in words for my daughter (also the model) who was emerging from a personal crisis at the time. I titled it, "Something Like This"".

Check out our favorite Collections by Wendy: Fine Art Portraits (https://plus.google.com/u/1/collection/wH1LTB) and Czech Republic (https://plus.google.com/u/1/collection/0l3LTB).

Meet Create Member +Sam Stapleton

"I’ve spent a slow 40 years practicing photography and now my recent retirement has given me the time to perform that for which I have been training so long. My hope is to create a few new images that may inspire others to look a step beyond the obvious."
