The new Mentions tab on the Google+ Web interface shows all the posts to users in which they have been tagged in.
Jaana Nyström's insight:

Google has silently added a new Mentions tab to its Google+ Web interface that shows users all posts in which they have been tagged. Earlier, users only had the option to check through notifications manually.


Now, the top bar of the Google+ on Web has added the Mentions tab next to the More tab. On clicking the Mentions tab, all the posts in which the user was ever 'mentioned' or tagged will be displayed.

GooglePlus Helper: Photos update in Android 5.0 Lollipop

GooglePlus Helper: Photos update in Android 5.0 Lollipop | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it

With the launch of Lollipop, the Google+ Photos app will replace the Gallery app for the following Nexus devices: 4, 5, 6, 9 and 10.
Users do not need a Google+ account or sign-in into Google+ in order to use the Photos app.

Why the change? As you know, Google is continually improving the experience on Google+ Photos, and now for Nexus users, they’re consolidating photo viewing and managing to a single app for a better photos experience, plus some additional features, such as Auto Backup, if users choose to sign in to Google+.

Gallery app is available only for devices running Android 4.2 to 4.4. If your device is running Android 5.0 or higher, use the Photos app to manage your photos.

Photos app update for Android 5.0 and Nexus devices!

12 of the best new features in Android Lollipop

12 of the best new features in Android Lollipop | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it

Google’s approach for rolling out the latest version of Android, Lollipop, is a little different. There are the usual things we see every year — a new Nexus phone and a new Nexus tablet — but instead of a big event, the company is posting details in blog posts and on the main Android site.


So if you’re tracking the rollout closely, you probably have a sense of what’s new and what’s cool in the OS. If you’re not, though, getting a sense of what Lollipop is actually like and what it actually does isn’t easy.

Looking forward to Android 5.0!

Lindsay Eikenberg's curator insight, October 27, 4:07 PM

The article discusses a new social media platform Tsu (pronounced Sue), which actually pays users for their posts. Payment is accumulated through an algorithm based upon who you get to join the network, your friends, and the engagement your post creates. Reviews of the platform look at it as beneficial because no other social media sites pay you for your posts. Tsu makes each and every post under your personal ownership. On the flip side, those who are members seem to posting anything and everything, without giving much thought or insight. Along with this, many are on their best behavior, being nice to everyone and becoming friends just to help with their payments.

It seems to me that recently a ton of social media platforms seem to be popping up than ever before. In no time, there will be so many to choose from that no one will become the next big thing. As I have said before, I think it will be hard for any new platform to compete with the ones already out there (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram). These have been around for so long and have so many users that it will take something big to really gain any sort of market share in the social media world. While I am sure that people would love to get paid for their posts, I just don’t think the pay is large enough to bring large numbers of people over. On top of this, it just seems a little fake to me. Of course people are going to post as much as possible to get more money. I wouldn’t want to read stuff that people are posting that is uninteresting just so they can make a few cents.

Scott Grodofsky's curator insight, October 26, 3:47 PM

This article is about How to write a social media update. The Social media websites that they talk about is Facebook, Twitter and Linkdin. The one for facebook that I thought was really helpful was put everything on different lines. It is better to put everything on different lines so everyone can read it and it is more clear. Clarity is very important with writing updates. The update that stood out for me on Twitter is alway using lowercase. I find that interesting that it helps if you make everything lower case. Finally the most important social media for new employees is linkdin. I find it very helpful to put everything on separate lines. Which I agree with from the article. The clearer you are on linkdin the better you sound to an employeer.
