* The ability to edit your status is a great little feature - helping journos to update stories quickly and easily; potentially brilliant during a breaking news event. The status also shows a time stamp - useful.
* You can mute a post/question after you have moved on to another story - very useful function that helps reduce the time needed to moderate a page.
* Photographs get more pride of place on Google+. They appear larger and more prominent in your stream than in Facebook, making your update far more attractive (and we know how much users like good photographs/picture galleries). The same applies to video, incidentally.....cont..

Google Plus and Content Moderation and Curation

Google Plus and Content Moderation and Curation | Google+ | Scoop.it

Content curation is a useful part of any content marketing strategy though it should not be used as a cheap or quick alternative to creating original content. Content curation takes time. You need to read carefully and decide if resources are relevant, if they are unique and if they are of value to your audience. In doing this you will use your own expertise, judgement and your own insights. Rather than simply sharing you may provide a summary, add context or add your personal perspective. In this way you really begin to add value and authority as a content curator.

A pair of unrelated reports show that user satisfaction with Google+ is dropping, and the service is failing to gain traction in terms of content sharing. Is G+ circling the drain?
Steve Mullen's insight:

Google+ is vitally important if you want to maintain a foot hold in organic SEO. The fact they've integrated G+ with their search results has flipped SEO on its head.. I can't see it going anywhere other than up. Do you?

Google's experiment in web access | Independent Online

Google's experiment in web access | Independent Online | Google+ | Scoop.it

From sending solar-powered balloons into the stratosphere to offering free Wi-Fi in parks, Google is quietly spending hundreds of millions of dollars on nascent Internet services that may one day challenge the telecom and cable companies.

 

In recent months, Google has announced plans to bring free wireless Internet access to 7 000 Starbucks cafes across America, eventually displacing AT&T; it has asked US regulators for broader access to wireless airwaves; and it has launched 30 solar-powered balloons over the South Pacific ocean, designed to beam the Internet to remote regions.

 

Then there is Google Fiber, the high-speed cable TV and Internet service that was introduced in Kansas City late last year and that will be expanded soon to Austin and Provo, Utah. Fiber delivers Internet speeds at 1 gigabit per second, as much as 100 times faster than the average US network.

 

Google is happy with customer responses in Kansas so far and may roll Google Fiber out to a few more US cities, according to several people close to the project.

 

“Fiber is considered the golden child right now within Google because of its disruptive nature and the applause that they get from the communities using it,” said a former member of Google Access, a group headed by Vice President Milo Medin, who drives the company's Internet access projects.

 

Medin, a networking industry veteran who founded the seminal @Home cable broadband network in the 1990s, leads a few hundred employees. The group operates autonomously with its own engineering, finance and marketing units, according to the source.
