Update To The Google+ Profile Views Hype And Our April Fools

Following the google+ profile views feature being announced and the way google+ users went crazy over this news, our CEO's +Tanya Gray   and +Arjan Terol   decided that this was a good opportunity for an aprils fools, so they shared our post in four relevant communities.

The post stated: if you switch on advanced settings you can adjust the number of views on your profile.
https://plus.google.com/105100931470081617895/posts/N7Uvo4ZAJvT

Crazy and unbelievable right! Well not entirely...

What started out as an april fool, has in-fact produced some small, but interesting results and confirmed a few others.

- Our own google+ page, and that of both our CEO's all each got well over 2000 new profile views, in less than 24hrs.
Conclusion: You can indeed adjust your numbers, maybe not exactly as we described, but certainly effortlessly and very very quickly.
- 57 people hit the plus button, and re-shared the post.....then nearly all of them retracted their pluses and shares, leaving some people - who actually understood the post, and some who were just , well confused.
Conclusion: People were clearly blind sharing and when you don't read before you share, you only contribute to bombarding everyone with yet more untrue and unoriginal content. 
- 2 of the 4 communities they posted in, both who had allowed posts in reference to profile views, removed our post, within 5 minutes...
Conclusion: clearly bombarding some communities with unoriginal, boring content is ok, but humour is not. It did however provide us with much amusement that our post was taken so seriously.

All the fuss that has been created about profile/content views and followers, means nothing. Just because someone can post a lot of cat pictures, doesn't confirm they have authority in anything other than spammy posts.

Our advise:

- Read before you share, nobody needs to be bombarded with yet more unoriginal posts. 
- Ignore the numbers.

Follow people based on the original and informative content they share -  not because everyone else has or because they have high numbers. 
We see this new google+ feature as pointless and misleading. The reality is the only thing these numbers actually prove is that some people are very good at finding cat pictures and they also have a huge amount of time on their hands. 

Thank you to everyone who shared this post and seen the amusement in it. We certainly had a lot of fun.

Grids serve well to divide up a predefined canvas and guide how content fits onto a page, but the web’s fluid nature calls for something more responsive. 

In Issue № 392, Nathan Ford takes the next step in layouts by focusing on the tone and shape of our content first, then working outward to design fluid, ratio-based grid systems.

Remember that time we tricked the Internet into following a paperclip on Twitter? That was weird:
