GooglePlus Helper: To block or not to block - that is the question

GooglePlus Helper: To block or not to block - that is the question | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it

Newcomers to Google+ have been blocking strangers who add them to circles just because they don't understand the principle of Circles.  Blocking in this case is quite unnecessary:

On Google+ anyone can add anyone in their circles and start following the posts.

Those who follow you on the Plus don't see anything you post to your circles, only your Public posts or the posts to Extended circles in some cases.

Jaana Nyström's insight:

Google+ Is Alive and Well Despite Persistent Media Reports

Google+ Is Alive and Well Despite Persistent Media Reports | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, July 31, 2:00 AM

I have missed some real information on the subject from an insider. 

And here is some -

I must say, FB have made a concept of dictatorship deciding who and what i see posting and i don't like it.

About 60% of what's hitting my "wall" is advertising now and if you are one of my friends there is 7% chance i got you update and posts on my screen. 


Is G+ the answer then?


Not at the moment because the people i like to interact with isn't using it and never had.


Actually i would like to see something new. -

Something with the best from Twitter, FB, and G+ combined in a new concept.


Is there such a thing already?


I don't know, maybe there is.

Please make some comments here and help us out if you know one.

I'll check it.

New things popping op all the time :-)

Wouldn’t it be nice if your concert ticket appeared at the top of your inbox just before the event started, or your hotel confirmation came back right before you needed to check in?

Starting today, Snooze in Inbox is getting a bit more convenient—when you snooze an email that has dates and times (like event confirmations or shipping notifications), you’ll get a one-tap option to snooze to exactly the right time, like the day of your concert or the morning your package will arrive.

Asked about the service, Page expressed support that it will continue even as Google becomes part of Alphabet.

The future of Google+ came under question yet again last month, as Google announced it was disconnecting the social service from other parts of Google, such as YouTube.

After that, Google vice president Bradley Horowitz reassured that Google+ itself wasn’t dead and would continue as a “connection” platform. Now Page, still Google’s top-most leader, has added his support in only his fourth public post of 2015 on the service.
