At least Rand and Cruz stood. Seems typical of a progressive to take the easiest way (sitting) that doesn't involve a lot of effort.

#GoT +Game of Thrones season ending was lame with a few high points. What happened in the beginning of the episode should've happened at the end of the episode.

#ShitShow  strategy by #Google  . There was nothing wrong with the previous version of Google Plus. All they had to do was to make minor updates where needed and refine what was already amazing about. Instead they murdered the old version. Released a substandard version and celebrate when they make incremental fixes to the horrid mess.
 
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~

+Ed Towel also the arrogant behavior of the engineers, just read the comments under the post your reshared. Best engineers wouldn't react like that. So I think your theory might be correct.

Google had the audacity to ask me how I'm enjoying Google Plus. Here is the response I wrote:

Google Plus was a great service, with far higher quality discourse than any other social media outlet. It was "social media utopia" for the first couple of years. The mobile apps were extremely useful and functional. It was heading in the best direction. I reached 50K followers, excellent,relevant content and conversation, and can honestly say that Plus felt progressive and important. It became the biggest part of my online interaction. Part of the reason I made a switch to a Nexus device over my iPhone was for a better, more complete experience of Google services...starting with Plus.

In the past two years, Google has utterly demolished Plus and squandered the potential we all saw. The app, after getting the Material Design makeover, has been hamstrung in the worst ways. The openness and quality user experience was totally dismantled. The integrated use of Photos was one of my favorite things, and when Photos was removed from Plus, you cut the value of Plus in half.

You even broke the app's ability to correctly view gifs. This was such a simple thing that the Plus app did from day one, and you broke it for some ineffable reason. It still sucks to this day.

Google seems to have deliberately damaged Plus and completely disregarded it's fiercely loyal user base, and it's damaged that user base's faith in Google. I'm back on an iPhone now in no small part because I no longer trust Google products to provide a consistent, positive experience.

And you have the audacity to stick a "how we doin?" survey in my Plus feed now?

You're doing very, very poorly.
