Living close to the fairgrounds means G+ nearby feature becomes a live feed of fried food consumption. I'm not complaining, if anything it's making me more excited to go tomorrow.

Nice Northern caught on Butterfield Lake in northern MN. No idea how much it weighed, but definitely one of the bigger fish I've ever caught.

Yeah. We rented a cabin right on the lake. Beautiful place & reasonably priced too.

I could watch this goal over and over and over. I haven't stopped thinking about it since the game. I agree with the poster of the video: This has got to be one of the most amazing goals in soccer history, men's or women's.

Yikes, not quite sure how G+ is getting such a specific, but completely wrong, address for me when I add my location to a post.

This is a pretty good list, but I'd add:
• Ability to custom filter main Stream
• Ability to make a Circle public, so interesting Circles can be shared

My Google+ feature wish list:

- Vanity URLs, eg. plus.google.com/kevinrose

- Create multiple G+ accounts. I'd love to have accounts for my business, tea obsession, etc.

- Hangouts are great for mass broadcasts. It would be interesting to build them like turntable.fm, a few can broadcast while the others queue up and watch.

- One level of nested comments to keep conversations grouped. It's confused to see an out of context response 20-30 comments down (note: this only really applies to long threads).

- Sparks need to be rethought. I'd potentially replace this w/a social version of Google News. You could have trending Sparks emerge based on the highly shared content on G+. People could add content by tagging it with a Sparktag (like a hashtag with a different symbol? !sparktag), you could then build a news algo to sort the best news/content under that Sparktag. Hmm, there is something to this, have to think it through more..

- I'd love to import/move my photos over, but it's annoying that each photo is broadcast out to the stream as they are imported -- maybe I'm confused, but I believe it works this way..?

- Show my follower count next to my photo on the home screen. As lame as this sounds it's an ego stroke to the user as this grows, users will come back to check the number.

Have anything to add? Post it in the comments!

I thought of a super easy way to custom filter the stream: allow users to set a circle as their default stream filter. That way you could easily put all the people you ALWAYs want to see in that circle and click to see the others, plus you wouldn't have to set individual controls by person.

Absolutely insane growth numbers for G+.
Paul Allen originally shared:
 
Google+ To Pass 10,000,000 Users Tomorrow (on 7/12)

As I promised on Saturday night, I have finished updating my Google+ membership model with new data and re-estimated the Google+ user base.

My surname-based analysis shows that the number of Google+ users worldwide reached 7.3 million yesterday (July 10) – up from 1.7 million users on July 4th. That is a 350% increase in six days. The userbase is growing so quickly that it is challenging for me to keep up, since the number of users of any given surname (even the rare ones I am tracking) seems to be climbing every day.

More impressive than last week's growth is the astonishing growth in users from yesterday at mid-day to tonight -- a 30% jump. My latest estimate tonight shows approximately 9.5 million users. This suggests that 2.2 million people have joined Google+ in the past 32-34 hours.

I project that Google will easily pass 10 million users tomorrow and could reach 20 million user by this coming weekend if they keep the Invite Button available. As one G+ user put it, it is easy to underestimate the power of exponential growth.

My model is simple. I start with US Census Bureau data about surname popularity in the U.S., and compare it to the number of Google+ users with each surname. I split the U.S. users from the non-U.S. users. By using a sample of 100-200 surnames, I am able to accurately estimate the total percentage of the U.S. population that has signed up for Google+. Then I use that number and a calculated ratio of U.S. to non-U.S. users to generate my worldwide estimates. My ratio is 1 US user for every 2.12 non-U.S. users. That ratio was calculated on July 4th through a laborious effort, and I haven't updated it since. That is definitely a weakness in my model that I hope to address soon. The ratio will likely change over time.

Since I have been tracking this same cohort of surnames from my first day, I am able to accurately measure growth over time.

I am not claiming perfect accuracy, but I do think the model is sound. A quant has suggested a mathematical formula that I can use to calculate a range of Google users with a 99% level of accuracy, and one of my employees is working on that math now. I hope to include that in future models.

Here is one way to look at my model. Imagine the U.S. government in 2020 has no money left. I know that's hard to imagine, but stay with me. Imagine they wanted to conduct a 2020 census and subsequent decennial censuses with a degree of accuracy (let's say 95%) and to do it on a shoestring budget.

They had complete data for 2010 - the population and growth rates for every city and town in the country. To do 2020, they could just take a random sampling of 100 cities and towns across the U.S. that were representative and conduct the census JUST for those cities every 10 years. If those 100 cities averaged the same growth rates as the rest of the country, then their decennial censuses would be fairly accurate but very inexpensive. (Obviously the US example won't work and shouldn't be tried, since the purpose of the U.S. census is in part to determine Congressional representation - so a complete census must be done in the entire country.)

But my project is like that - a low-budget sampling. I have randomly selected 100 uncommon U.S. surnames and I am tracking the number of Google+ users with those names - updating my counts every 2-3 days. I am assuming that the growth in G+ users with those surnames is similar to the growth in G+ users with the other 150,000 or so surnames in the U.S. If I had resources to include 500 or 1,000 surnames in my sample, then I believe my model would be more accurate. But my time and budget available for this project are small, so it is what it is. And then I take the 2.12 - 1 non-US to US ratio to complete the calculations.

I'm not sure how many more times I'll update this. I do believe it is quite accurate. Much more accurate than a guess. It is based on sound starting data, but some of my assumptions may not be perfect. I look forward to Google announcing actual user numbers, so I can stop working on this in all my spare time. Or, perhaps, someone will discover an advanced query that actually works - that returns unique user profile pages but no pages that contain posts. People keep suggesting queries will work, but so far, I have found that none of them is accurate for user counts.

For reference, here are my earlier posts on this subject:

I wish I could exclude certain circles from my Google+ main stream. I love the ability to break people into different circles, but certain high-volume folks end up consuming my main stream and I'd love to throw them into a "Chatty" circle and then exclude that from the main steam.

definitely needed. one can select a circle and view only those posts, but would be nice to have option to exclude one circle from main stream. i have an NSFW stream I would love to ignore from the main stream at certain times for example ;)
