Excellent read.  Here is a highilight:


2. Google+ Authorship is becoming a filter for quality content

Google has been fighting a war against bad quality content for most of its existence. Content that is poor quality and irrelevant but rises to the top of search results because of clever manipulation of the underlying Google search algorithm does a disservice to Google’s brand – and they know it.


Enter Google Authorship, a method of connecting your Google+ profile to your blog and other places where you publish content on the web, so you can help Google find your quality content.

When you set up Google Authorship and tie your content to your Google+ profile, you make it easier for Google to track social signals associated with your content, such as when other Google+ users +1 your content or reshare it or engage in discussion around it.

Protecting content and getting benefits of authorship become more important. Here's some good information.

AlGonzalezinfo's insight:

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  


We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  


Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.


This is a relevant infographic.

I like the fact that G+ gives you access to a platform of apps not just a one app show pony

It’s about time you give some love to Google+, a social media platform set to attract more people not only because of its new dressed up interface, but also by the recent features added.


Google+ is obviously betting big on photos as it launches its ability to “auto awesome” images uploaded to it. Its mobile app came through with its refreshing updates as well. All in all, it has been a very active month for Google+ and the new wave of features is projected to increase its social networking share.

Now here’s an infographic ready to turn anyone who’s willing to make the jump an instant Google+ savvy user.
