Another major glacier in Greenland breaks loose from its stable position. All by itself, this glacier holds enough water to raise global sea level by more than 18 inches if it were to melt completely. Currently, it is losing 5 billion tons of mass every year.

What's the affordance / design pattern for closing the media you're viewing in  #googleplus ? It seems like you need to hit the "Esc" key to close the window and get back to the main page/feed? It doesn't seem very intuitive and there's no visual cues (like a "X" located somewhere in the right corner of the screen).

To me it seems like the normal way to exit this kind of thing is to click outside of the focused window, but that just brings up some additional content? I'm not sure what the user stories are here..

Using google+ still seems to feel quite unnatural most of the time and not following the events I would typically want to take.  I wonder if there's much testing on how typical users experience/interact with google+, and the user's tacit affordances?
