Google+ Ripples now appear in real-time

Ripples are a great way to watch how public posts get shared across Google+ (http://goo.gl/6qhVu). Today, as part of my summer internship, I'm happy to roll out real-time Ripples. This means that reshares and comments on public posts now “ripple” as they happen.

To give it a try just find an active public post, select "View Ripples" from the drop-down menu, and watch the activity unfold (reshare publicly to watch your own post appear!). The Explore page is a great place to start looking for active posts (plus.google.com/explore).

A while back we announced plans for a tool that would help you transfer your circles from one Google+ account to another and ensure that your followers are automatically directed to your new, preferred profile.  Today, anyone can visit Google Takeout and click “Transfer your Google+ connections to another account”: https://www.google.com/takeout.  For more information, check out this help center article.  Thanks again for being so patient!
