Questions About Google+ on Quora

TIL Google Plus is amazing at creating Porn montages. [NSFW]

So I was without a computer for a while, which naturally led to the kind of content I usually use my laptop to consume ending up on the phone's storage... Among comic books, TV shows, and movies I ended up having two porn torrents on my N5.

Later on I'm browsing through my auto backup on Google Plus and I notice an unfamiliar face in the "Auto Awesome" section. You know, the one where Google does stuff like collages, animated gifs from progress pictures, etc.

Well, it turned out Google cut the two scenes into a very nice preview, just over a minute long! Not only that, it added some very fitting music and showed what I think were all positions in both scenes. It really looked better than many porn trailers.

Without further ado, the masterpiece!

On Google Plus

In the light of recent events involving Vic Gundotra and his leaving of Google, I've read so many hateful things here on Reddit and on the internet in general, so I just wanted to share my own experiences with the social network that are very contrary to popular beliefs.

-Google Plus the ghost-town

That's really the primary argument I always hear from most people. "But none of my friends or family are on Google Plus" "No one I know uses Google Plus" "Why should I use Google Plus when everyone I know is only on Facebook?"

To those people I want to say: Did it ever occur to your that you can maybe use a platform with interesting posts and people, even if none of your friends are on it and everyone is a stranger? Well look around, you're doing it right now! I didn't exist in your world before this post! Tell me, exactly how many of your friends and family use Reddit? Probably not that much right? Yet you spend hours here and discover new and funny things every day, right? And there are also many Subreddits targeted directly at your particular interests, full of relevant content and people that you interact with daily, even in this very moment. Now think about this for a second: Google Plus has more than twice as many active users as Reddit.

-The Userbase

From my PoV "But all my friends are on Facebook" is an argument for Google Plus, rather than against it.

Tell me, when exactly was the last time you saw a rational, respectful discussion without insults on Facebook? It's probably been a while, right? Maybe never? I've had some of the most engaging, rational, respectful and grammatically correct conversions and discussions with some of the brightest and nicest people I've ever met in this "ghost town". Certainly not something I can claim to have experienced on Facebook.

If you log in to Google Plus, like 3 pages and then leave after 10 minutes, you're really not in a position to claim that this Platform is a ghost Town.

Your argument should end right where you say "I don't know much about the topic" and this doesn't only apply in this discussion.

My 2 cents, I'd like to hear your thoughts Reddit!

Let's Play - Google Plus - #1 : Dump your links here.

Since we've all been strong armed into making G+ accounts, why don't we make it a little easier to hit the ground running and start dumping our G+ channel links in this thread? I figure this way we can see who has their profile page set-up instead of all guessing and trying to find each other.

Commence networking!

Edit:

For everyone having trouble getting their "correct" profile to be set to default, imunfair figured out a work around. Once you do this, g+ becomes a lot easier to work with.

Something's up: 11 Google apps are awaiting updates on the Play Store

Current count: now 17 app updates (Oct 30, 4:25PM EDT)

It happened in the last hour. All of the apps below are currently showing Oct 29, 2013 as the most recent update; but there's no changelog and no roll out yet. If you include Google+ (which had its own press event), that's 12 apps 16 apps that will be updated at some point this week.

Could tomorrow be N5/Kit Kat day? Or is it just bug fixes as part of 'update Wednesday'?

Apps:

Which camp are you in?

Believers | Non-Believers | Close to mad

EDIT: Blogger too. So 13.

EDIT2: Pure speculation here; multiple updates usually happen close to the end of a quarter, not in the middle of it (Q3 ended Sept and we're only a month into Q4 - why would 13 product teams release updates on the same night? and Wallet of all products? and finally, considering Sundar Pichai didn't appear at the Google+ event yesterday, why did Vic Gundotra tag him earlier this week after all? I think Vic's big day was yesterday. Sundar's will be tomorrow.)

EDIT3: Kinda huge one... Google Play Services now showing Oct 28 (but hasn't rolled out to anyone either). So 14 apps total.

EDIT4: Less huge, Analytics and Fiber app also surfacing with Oct 28.

EDIT5: Someone reminded me that Snapseed was also updated Oct 29.

Dear Reddit, I just made my first Reddit Android app, inspired by the Google Plus cards UI and Holo design, it is called Reddit Illustrated.

Hi friends, I am an indie developer working alone on Android apps. I wanted a Reddit app that puts the full preview of photos in the main timeline itself so that I don't have to open each picture and then come back to the main screen. Since most Reddit apps I tried followed the "inbox style" list model, I set out to create that app on my own. I wanted the app to be based on the latest version of Android design guidelines, with cards UI, navigation drawer and all. And 4 weeks later here I am with Reddit Illustrated.

Google Play Store link

The app puts the big colorful images right in the middle of your timeline and you can keep on scrolling without reaching the end. It works best on photo-centric subreddits like pics, funny, wallpaper etc (screenshot) but even on subredits like worldnews or Android where the posts are more likely to be stories from sites like cnn.com or androidpolice.com, the app attempts to extract the most relevant image from the page and displays it (screenshot). There is also an internal web browser based on Readability (which you can turn off) that displays links in a mobile formatted UI.

You can use the app without a reddit.com account but if you login, you can vote, comment and access your personalised front page and subscribed subreddits as well. You can also add subreddits locally into the Favorites section if you just need it in your phone/tablet alone instead of subscribing.

  • Clean user interface based on the cards UI of Google Plus app
  • Scales beautifully on phones as well as 7" tablets like Nexus 7
  • Vote or comment on stories as well as individual comments
  • Access to your personalised front page and subscribed subreddits
  • Sorting option for stories and comments
  • Threaded comments with color coding to indicate their hierarchy
  • Maintain a list of your favorite subreddits
  • Simply long press on any image to download
  • Set the downloaded image as wallpaper from notification bar (screenshot)
  • Share your favorite stories to Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and more
  • Downloads thumbnails (instead of full size images) for preview from imgur.com, flickr.com, minus.com and wikimedia.org
  • Generates thumbnails for Youtube videos and quickmeme.com links
  • Hide NSFW photos completely or turn off their previews alone
  • Integrated internal web browser that displays links in a mobile-friendly format
  • Automatic image cache deletion in every 2 days (can be changed in settings)

The app is free and will work on all devices with Android 2.2 and above (although on an Android 4.0+ device it will feel much better due to hardware acceleration and large memory heap available). A $1.99 in-app purchase will remove the ads and your support will help me continue the development.

I tested the app on my Galaxy Note and a friend's S2 and it worked great. I hope it works well on your devices as well. Please give it a try and do let me know your thoughts. Thank you.

Google is lying. Reader still has MILLIONS of active users. Stats inside.

If you click the detail view of a Reader feed, it will show you the current number of subscribers. You can also see subscriber counts in the Recommended list, or on a feed search.

The number of subscribers is staggering even for sites I'd never heard of, larger than some countries:

Engadget: 6,604,967

CNET News: 1,663,104

The Big Picture: 761,743

Ars Technica: 28,350

The Onion: 499,915

Order of the Stick: 34,497

TheKitchn.com: 686,512

xkcd: 324,329

Cyanide & Happiness: 108,458

Lifehacker: 55,627

Cool Tools: 201,264

Penny Arcade: 183,586

I thought maybe it was a legacy thing, like these sites racked up tens or hundreds of thousands of subscribers years ago when Reader was popular but the service now has far fewer active users. And yet:

The Verge (launched November 2011): 102,756

xkcd's What If? (launched July 2012): 71,811

Also, Buzzfeed recently published statistics showing that Google Reader delivers orders of magnitude more traffic than Google Plus -- between 10 and 25 million hits per month. That's a significant fraction of Facebook's total traffic the same time period (10-35%).

Judging from these stats, Google Reader is not stagnant or neglected. Reader has millions of active users. And Google is fucking all of them over, hard.

EDIT: According to blog Google Operating System:

  • most popular feed (CNN) has more than 24 million subscribers

  • Google's official feed has more than tripled its subscription base since 2007

  • 87% of GOS readers come from Google Reader

  • According to Google Trends, search interest in Google Reader climbed steadily throughout 2008, 2009, 2010 and plateaued in 2011, seeing only a slight decline (plateauing at 2009 levels) only after they fucked up its social sharing systems.

Bradley Horowitz says that a merge between Voice, Google Talk, Hangouts and Messenger is on the roadmap

Spotted this bit of news from a user who attended a breakfast event at Google Nederland with Bradley Horowitz, VP of Social Products.

"Currently there are two versions of Google Talk (outside and inside Google+), there is Gmail, Google Voice, Google+ Hangouts and Messenger. This does not make it easy for the user to share something with someone else. Although Horowitz again not much was said, would be the one and the other in the coming months are going to change." (sorry for the bad translation from Dutch)

Google+ post: https://plus.google.com/112433233162542061134/posts/PYaoYUjo4iB

Article (Dutch): http://www.dutchcowboys.nl/googleplus/26428

Also interesting: only 20% of the planned features for Google+ have rolled out so far. Bradley says "2013 will be the year of Google+".

Reddit Sync has been removed from Google Play

Just woke up to an email from Google Play informing me that the free version of Reddit Sync has been banned without warning for the following reasons:


REASON FOR REMOVAL: Violation of the intellectual property and impersonation or deceptive behavior provisions of the Content Policy.


I've checked the content policy and am at a complete loss as to why it has been pulled. If it's just for having the word Reddit in the title I'd be surprised. All images and assets in the app follow their respective licenses so I doubt it's that either.

The app was even previously reviewed by some guys at Google who didn't seem to think it was deceptive...

I have no idea what to do, I have been working on this app for just under a year and it has been a complete labour of love. Would appreciate any suggestions, thanks.

Laurence

EDIT: I've cross posted this to Google Plus, hopefully this should gain a little awareness: https://plus.google.com/106154618737936766302/posts/7nttQsUUwuY

EDIT 2: I've also emailed Reddit directly however no DMCA notice was included in Googles email

EDIT 3: Reto Meier has got in touch through Google Plus and is looking into it

EDIT 4: Ionatana Davis from Google has also got in touch via Google Plus and is looking into it

EDIT 5: The guys from Google seem to have backed off, now waiting for the appeal team to get in touch. 26 hours and counting...

reddit is fun banned for "sexually explicit material"

Wow. I wasn't expecting this. I got 2 emails from the Google Play Store telling me my apps, reddit is fun lite and pro, have been banned for sexually explicit material.

I'm not sure how to go about appealing this. After all it's true that reddit content includes NSFW content. Not sure exactly why my app was singled out and the other reddit apps weren't, though.

Any thoughts? Should I even bother appealing? As always I appreciate your input, /r/android. Thanks.

EDIT: I posted on Google Plus: https://plus.google.com/108576990588738594191/posts/8LfJmKX48R2 maybe it would help to gain awareness through that avenue? Thanks for all your support, guys.

EDIT2: Dave Nicponski, a Google employee, commented on that Google Plus thread, saying the right people at Google are going to contact me about what actually triggered the issue:

+Andrew Shu So i've spoken with the appropriate people here @ google. There seems to be some (very large) confusion about what actually happened. Expect to hear back shortly.

To the masses decrying "censorship! Oh noes!" That's not what happened here at all. Hopefully Andrew will be able to confirm this shortly. It really is a very tiny thing that seems to have caused this. Just be patient.

Still awaiting their response...

EDIT3: I thought it was funny that the situation is somehow getting coverage in China: http://it.sohu.com/20120320/n338298872.shtml

EDIT4: The Google Play appeals team have responded to my appeal. They asked me for more clarification on a few points all surrounding the inclusion of NSFW reddits in the default list. So that, as many of you already guessed, is what concerns them about the app. I replied already and will update when I hear back a second time.

EDIT5: Thank you everyone for your support! Google is giving me a chance to reinstate the app, provided I fix the Content Policy issues. The primary issue is the linking to sexually explicit reddits and potentially other policy-violating reddits like any condoning hate speech, gratuitous violence, etc.

How I got on Google Plus (No witchcraft, just a little help from some code)

A redditor shared a link (not an invite as those are closed) and using that link to http://plus.google.com I refreshed every 5 seconds for 20 hours. To make that easy, I used a handy Chrome Extension to stay up all night and do all the refreshing for me. Download Extension - Went to bed & woke up w/ access to Google Plus. EDIT: I was logged in to my gmail account at the time. EDIT 2: Wow, front page! Glad to have been helpful. Thanks folks!

Google Plus invite thread

Figured I'd start this one up again since I got my invite through this thread a week ago (and wasn't able to activate it until an hour ago).

Post your email, get an invite, remove your email from the post (so other know not to invite you) and invite others. Repeat.

Faster we invite people, better shot it has of competing with Facebook.

EDIT: Seems like they closed out the invites again. I had the same thing when I got invited last week and had to check back every so often and wait for them to open up. Once they do open up, all you gotta do is go to plus.google.com and it should allow you to sign in. Nothing more I can do from this point on. If you got an invite, try to invite more people when it does open up. If you're still waiting, keep checking back. I'll try to open another thread like this when I notice that it's open again.

EDIT 2: Seems it might be back up now?!?! Either way, if you ever get an invite but get stopped for a "keep me posted" button, simply keep checking back later, it might take a week or more though (mine took a week).

EDIT 3: I'm off to bed for tonight. Seems there are a few people that are inviting others, consistently faster than I do it too. If they miss you by any chance, message me and I'll mass invite people tomorrow when I get a chance.

EDIT 4: Back from work. Invited everyone who didn't have an invite since I went to sleep yesterday. I'm done for now guys, my fingers hurt from inviting right now. Might be back at this a bit tonight again.

Hey ladies- do any of you want a google plus invite?

Pm me your email address.

EDIT: Apparently it can take upto 3 hours for you to get the invite. I didn't get mine in my inbox but after I was invited, I just went to plus.google.com and got to login with my gmail account. You can try that. If you get the we're temporarily at our limit message, you can try refreshing the page until it works. I'm adding you all to a circle (and its the only way I know) so if you know a more efficient method of inviting people, please let me know!

EDIT2: It might be easier if you logged into your gmail (for those of you who sent me your gmail addresses) and then went to plus.google.com.

EDIT3: Its 5.25PM CST and I sent out ~60 invites. Let me know if you don't get them. I'm going out now ...I'll get back to these again later tonight:)

EDIT4: I'm so sorry for the lack of updates. So I sent out a bunch but I'm not sure if they're going through - a bunch of people messaged me saying they didn't get it..but I saw a bunch who got on. I'm not doing any more invites but thanks so much to the redditor(s?) who sent me reddit gold - it was so ridiculously sweet and thank you soo much..you really didn't have to! i got my invite from a redditor so just wanted to give some back to my favorite subreddit! <3
