Good to see Google Play extending it's reach into Europe, next the world?
 
Google Play  ► International rollout, now that's entertainment!
Access to books, movies and apps/games but not yet music

I was delighted with the launch back in March of Google Play [play.google.com/about]. I got an invite but was disappointed it couldn't be accessed from outside the US. Now +Google Play is live in France, Germany, Spain, Italy & the UK. I give a big thank you to +Tina Patel and her team they got it working! I wait expectantly for the full service and the world wide rollout for everyone.

Last week I extended my Googleplus account to include my Youtube account, I got the option when commenting on a Youtube song. In honour of both these changes here is The Jam - That's Entertainment for this post, to quiet? Turn it up to 11

Reminder of how to get a short and more attractive vanity googleplus link to your Gplus page here:
Caring for Business originally shared:
 
Vanity URL gplus.to/caringforbusiness

Our new Googleplus page now has a vanity URL (if you want a custom page link use http://gplus.to/ to get one on G+)

Hi there, I tested my idea and reads as follows...

Shopping Basket Online....embedded link does not function here in G+ and is dropped when pasted into a post. the embedded link is: http://gplus.to/shoppingbasketonline

Ok, in Google+ posts, the direct link name does not work and you have to use the linking mechanism to establish the connection like I did in my test post.

But the embedded link works fine in other applications, like on a web page, e-mail body, Microsoft document (control-click to follow the link). The desired name will display and correctly follow the embedded link.

Thank you Michael,

Does social media add to business or detract?
Michael Beckett originally shared:
 
Is Social Media metrics (a) meaningful, (b) self-obsession, (c) distraction, (d) something else...more?

What's you're take on this?

Following Klout's integration of Googleplus I find my score has raised by 10 points, when I worked hard I got a score in the 70s but is it really worth the effort?
I have a Proskore of over 60 but does it really matter?

We have a corporate responsibility to care for society as well as business, we support The Sophie Lancaster Foundation.
Michael Beckett originally shared:
 
Happy Birthday Sophie Lancaster, had you lived you would be 25 this weekend

Since Sophie Lancaster's death on August 24th 2007, following the horrific attack on her and her partner Rob in Stubbeylee Park, Bacup, Lancashire. Where Rob was left in a coma and Sophie was stamped upon and kicked to death, simply because they dressed differently. Sophie and Rob dressed in their unique way, expressing their individuality as creative artistic people. In 2008 during sentencing the perpetrators Judge Anthony Russell QC said: "This was a hate crime against these completely harmless people targeted because their appearance was different to yours."

In tribute to the outgoing, bubbly girl who was denied the chance to live life her way,
and after consulting family and friends, it was felt that a charity should be set up in Sophie’s name. The charity, known as The Sophie Lancaster Foundation, focuses on creating respect for, tolerance and understanding of subcultures in our communities. It also works in conjunction with politicians and police forces to ensure individuals who are a part of subcultures are protected by the law. This essential education programme can only be delivered with your help.

Help the Sophie Lancaster Foundation Stamp Out Prejudice, Hatred and Intolerance Everywhere (S.O.P.H.I.E.). Please show your support by raising awareness of the charity and/or make a donation.

Following the 4th anniversary of Sophie's death the attached link is to a film to raise awareness and celebrate the Foundation's work, to find out how and where the funding for the charity goes.
A short film by award-winning French director, Fursy Teyssier featuring Portishead, 'Dark Angel' is a beautifully haunting rendition of Sophie's story. darkangel_sophie_lancaster_foundation.mov not currently available but I highly recommend to you the BBC drama "Black Roses - The Killing of Sophie Lancaster" by award-winning poet Simon Armitage.

Together, we can help stamp out prejudice, hatred and intolerance everywhere.
