Google found what G+ is good for.
Google+ finds itself.

Google launched Google+ to be the everything-for-everybody site. It was designed to be the future of Google itself, functioning as a news discovery site, a blogging platform, a lifestreaming engine and a replacement for every previous form of human communication. 

But the journalists and news junkies stuck to Twitter; and Facebook strengthened it's unbreakable network effect monopoly on everybody. 

Both Facebook and Twitter -- and for that matter Pinterest, Instagram and Snapchat -- continued to be dominated by fluff, celebrity, spam and cat GIFs.

Google+ became the one place online (that I know of) where serious nerds, enthusiasts and makers can have detailed and stimulating conversations with a large number of brilliant people. 

So today Google announced that they're re-designing Google+ to focus on what Google+ is truly great and indispensable for: passions. 

Specifically, Google+ will emphasize Communities and Collections, which is to say that Google+ will stop pretending to be everything for everyone and instead focus on being the best place -- OK, the ONLY place -- for real conversations among people who share the same obsessions.

Про Россию и 85%.
Посмотрите замечательный ролик про кошмары расизма и шовинизма.

А потом обратите внимание, как на него реагируют зрители. На 500 "лайков" - 900 "не-лайков". Топовые комментарии, у которых по двести лайков - типичный фашизм.

Ещё очень нескоро всё будет хорошо в России..
