New Google+ update lets you restrict your content by age and location.
Restrict your content by age and location
As a content creator you may want to reach customers and fans of all ages, all over the world. Or you may want to engage more carefully, sharing only with age-appropriate audiences or audiences in certain countries. Google+ now enables both pages and profiles to restrict their content based on user age and location.

So for example: you can now decide that only users 18+ or 21+ should be able to see your posts. You can also specify ages on a country-by-country basis if you need something more custom.

To get started just visit your page or profile settings, scroll to ‘Audience,’ and choose your desired option. From then on your posts (old and new) will follow your restrictions.

Check out our Help Center if you’d like to learn more (, and let us know what you think in the comments! We hope today’s update helps you reach your audience even more easily, and responsibly.

3 Hot G+ Help Questions
Google+ Help’s 3 Hottest Questions of the Week
Spam, Stories, Profiles!

Hey everyone! Time for the latest Google+ Help Weekly Round-Up where the top trending questions of the week are answered!

1) +Don Miller asked how he could block an advertiser.

Top Contributor +John Skeats responded with the following explanation:

There are no true advertisements on Google+. If you are talking about someone who is sending you unwanted commercial posts, I recommend reporting them for spamming first because that will help others who are also having the same problem. Click the "V" that appears in the upper right hand corner of the post when you move the cursor there and select Report spam or abuse. The post will be replaced by a rectangle, in the middle of which will be a link that you can use to block the poster.

See the full discussion here:

2) +Bob Colomb asked how he could recreate a deleted story.

Top Contributor +John Elstone said that deleted stories cannot be recovered, but he could try reuploading the images and see if it triggers a new story.

3) +Pablo Povarchik asked if he could have one G+ profile for 2 different Google Apps accounts.

Top Contributor +Peggy K responded:

No, that's not possible to have one Google+ Profile for two different Google accounts. You can choose one to be your primary Google+ identity and direct people who circle your secondary profile to your main profile.

Changes to the Google+ Name Policy

Read the discussion here:

2) Business Names on Profiles

+Amanda Moore asked about changing a personal name to a business name using a Google+ Profile. 

G+ Rising Star +martin shervington recommended creating a Page for the business instead of a Profile and gave instructions on how to set it up.

See the full answer here:

3) Custom URLs 

+Bob the Homeless Lobster asked "Now that you are allowing non-real names on google, can I get my (custom) URL changed to a non-real name?"

G+ TC +John Skeats said "There is currently no way to request that a custom URL be changed or even removed. If that would be important to you, I recommend using Feedback (at the bottom of the main menu) to send your request directly to the Google+ team for their consideration."
