Schedule posts for Google+ Profiles and Collections without the browser running all the time!

I am happy to announce that Google+ team has taken another step in the right direction and made it possible to publish to Google+ profiles and collections to all Google+ partners.

So from now on, Friends+Me users are going to be able to schedule and publish posts for Google+ profiles and collections without the need to keep the browser with the Friends+Me extension up and running all the time!

We've almost lost all hopes but it's finally here! How cool is that!

All you have to do is to reconnect your already connected Google+ Profile and Page accounts to enable this new feature.
The feature will be automatically enabled for all accounts you'll connect from now on.

There's a catch. The extended Google+ API do not support publishing to Google Apps profiles, only vanilla Google profiles are supported at the moment. Google+ team promised to remove this limitation soon.

Let me know what you think of this new feature.

Enjoy :)

Improved Photo Browsing

Hi friendly iOS users,

We’re proud to announce an improved photo browsing experience. Now, when you tap on a photo, you get a richer experience where you can (1) zoom-in (2) scroll to see more photos and (3) pinch or tap the icon in the top right to see a mosaic view of the photos in the stream. One of my favorite uses of this is to browse Leo Deegan’s photo collections, check it out and bring on the feedback!

Interesting G+ engagement analysis from +CircleCount

How do you feel about G+?
Google+ Engagement Analysis - April 2017

We have reshared yesterday a post by +Gideon Rosenblatt and the following discussion was great (https://plus.google.com/+GideonRosenblatt/posts/Wrig2znc3r2)!
So many familiar faces and so many opinions about the last years of Google+. And Gideon had to write a new post because of the 500-comments-limit.

+Ondřej Pokorný brought up the idea to check some numbers.
If you know CircleCount, you know that you don't need to ask us twice.

We have analyzed more than 500,000 public posts of 120 profiles and got the attached chart with the following metrics: plusones (yellow), reshares (red), comments (blue) per post.

The 120 profiles are the first 120 who have commented on Gideon's post. That's probably not a representative subset, but these are persons who are active on Google+. At least they have written one comment in the last 24 hours ;)

It's quite interesting to see the ups and downs compared to the different events happened on Google+ in the last years.

You can find the analysis of the posts of our page in the first comment here.
That was generated with the Dashboard PRO (http://www.circlecount.com/dashboardpro/) and is even more interesting because we can see how everything changed when the new Google+ UI was launched (in beta). Maybe we are doing something wrong but the analysis of the 120 profiles is showing a similar trend besides an increase last summer.

We are happy that +Carter Gibson and +Leo Deegan have joined the discussion on Gideon's post and saw the passion of many Google+ users.
That passion is why we love Google+!
A bit more love for the 3rd party developers or the issue tracker would be great though ;)

Community Member List and Simplified Web View for iOS

We’ve just launched a release that includes a few helpful features for navigating communities and viewing content on the web. For communities, we have a native community member list feature, which you can navigate to by tapping on the member faces on a community's page. You can also tap on the top bar to filter by either members or moderators (and you have even more options if you’re the moderator of a community!). To simplify viewing articles posted to G+, we’ve cleaned up the “view in web” experience to a single button in the top right. If you want to change your default between Chrome and Safari, simply go to the “Google App Settings” part of your Settings page.

[SOLVED]: Web application is temporarily unavailable. Will be solved shortly.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
