Golden Eagle Go Pro Photo in Mongolia  

Lauren McGough says, "Living as an eagle hunter in Mongolia, here I am on the mountaintop, with my loyal horse and with my female Golden Eagle. Local Kazakh hunters and I are waiting for the possible appearance of a fox. If one begins to run across the valley below, we will release our eagles to the chase and will follow as swiftly as possible through the frozen landscape on our sure-footed horses."

A Comprehensive Study of Content and Brand Visibility on Google+ 

Google has been aggressively attempting to diversify away from search. Over the years they’ve come up with a number of promising products in a sea of failed experiments. When +Larry Page  took charge of Google’s direction once again, we witnessed a sudden shut down of unviable products. What followed was profound integration of Google’s products services into a single unifying platform.

At the center of all that action was +Google+  which now fuses most of their key products and services including Search, AdWords, Gmail, YouTube, Drive, Picasa, Places, Android, Chrome, Maps and Earth
 
A Comprehensive Study of Google+

This remarkable resource http://dejanseo.com.au/google-plus-study/ from +Dan Petrovic and the +Dejan SEO team covers every aspect of Google+ in stunning detail. I read some, skimmed some, and plan to come back for a deep read again later. Even if you think you know all there is to know about G+, I promise you'll learn something new.

How semantic search drives trust and creates authority   

Great slide show from +David Amerland 
#semanticsearch   bridges the online and offline worlds by mapping the connectivity of our relationships and their impact and ascribing a value score to the connection. The result is that human qualities such as trust, authority and reputation now begin to matter as they help increase visibility in search.

My professor recently gave me this advice for my research paper:  "Keep in your mind your audience and purpose--who are you writing this for and what do you hope to accomplish with it?"

Android launches Google Camera App

Today we’re launching Google Camera, a new app for your #android   phone or tablet that makes it easy to take quick photos and videos. And being behind the lens just got more fun with new creative picture modes.
 
Today we’re launching Google Camera, a new app for your Android phone or tablet that makes it easy to take quick photos and videos. And being behind the lens just got more fun with new creative picture modes.

Sleek Design. The 100% viewfinder gets out of your way while capturing the maximum resolution of the scene (no dropped pixels). And the extra large capture button is easy to press so your eyes never lose sight of the subject.

Lens Blur. Emphasize the subject while blurring the background for an SLR-like shot with shallow depth-of-field (or bokeh). You can even change the subject in focus after taking the shot.

Improved Panorama. New higher resolution panoramas capture the full width and detail of a scene.

Photo Sphere. Immersive 360 degree photo spheres let you look up, down and all around...now at up to 50 megapixels! For the first time available on non-Nexus devices.

Google Camera is now available on the Play store (http://goo.gl/llsZjx), and works on all phones and tablets running Android 4.4+ KitKat. We’re just getting started, and in the months ahead we'll make Google Camera available to more devices, helping make photography easier, faster and more fun.

Check out our Research Blog to learn more (http://goo.gl/lUDfi8).

Facebook is not focusing on Selfies or Cat Updates anymore lol 

Facebook's next frontier has everything to do with your money, and nothing to do with #selfies   or status updates. 
Not content with being just a platform to host cat photos and status updates, Facebook is readying itself to provide financial services in the form of remittances and electronic money.   read more hear at cnbc http://cnb.cx/1qyeQdl     #facebook  +Vania Benavides

Well...e-gifts and buying credits for games did become popularized on Facebook...so this sort of makes sense. There may be some people using it, and others who won't ever, but I'm sure they'll find a way to make it a norm

Destry is a closet tech genius with a Real Estate license to boot.. Choosing just three traits for Destry is difficult - because he represents every positive aspect there is in a realtor and a person. You will not find a better Realtor in Santa Cruz. he is the most hard-working, efficient, experienced, honest, and nicest person and realtor on this planet.

Ron and Nikki are awesome, they fixed my Audi's brake pads, changed my oil and also helped straighten out my steering and alignment. He is really smart and trust worthy. I would recommend bringing in your vehicle to Advanced Auto Santa Cruz for any issue. Thanks Ron.
