Google is Helping Women Get Online in India

Google India aims bring 50 Million Women Online by empowering women from all walks of life with the right resources.  India has over 200 million Internet users and the number is growing. India is on its way to become the second largest Internet market overtaking US. But, only one-third or about 60 million of the online users are women.

Google India has partnered with brands to create awareness about the benefits of Internet for women, educate them to use Internet to improve their lives and enable easy access points across the country. Internet can help women achieve self esteem, open up new opportunities and help them to gain education.

HWGO


Google has designed a website HWGO, which will host content covering the basics of Internet and content relevant for women in Hindi and English. You can check out the step-by-step guide to help everyone use the internet- your mom, your neighbor, your aunt or just someone else you know whose life could improve with the internet.

It has also started a toll-free helpline number '1800 41 999 77' to help women get answers for their Internet-related queries.

Cleaning Up Your Google+ Communities

Google Plus Communities are gaining ground and is finding lot of interests among social media enthusiasts and users. It is the best to start building your network and relationship with people of similar interests. Once you join, it is always better to review them now and then to keep it organized.
Just like we organize our Circles, we need to do the same thing with Communities regularly if we're going to continue to gain value from the Communities and Google+.

It is better to review those communities that either aren't active, or are not providing you with the valuable discussion you were looking for.These excess communities add to the total number of communities listed on your community page, complicating your ability to find and participate in the communities you're interested in. And posts to these extra communities could show up in your Home stream  and may even affect what your want see in What's Hot or Explore section of the Google+.

Google Plus Search Update

Google brings in improvements to G+ Search. Most significant is how searching is now less disruptive, while it is easier to categorize results.

On a results page, users can now filter by Posts , Communities, Collections, and People & Pages thanks to a new tabbed interface. When in the Posts tab, users can also filter posts from everyone, from people you follow or just you.
Another improvement is, a new, tabbed interface making it easier for you to find the exact type of content that you’re looking for.  Popular Topics are now displayed in the search bar dropdown.


These features should now be widely rolling out to all Google+ web users.

Discover Stream - Google Plus Update

Google+ launches new ‘Discover’ feature to help new users find the absolutely best content the network has to offer.New and signed out users will land on Discover (previously ‘Featured Collections’) which puts content from a diverse set of sources front and center.

We hope that this creates a better experience for new users that more readily communicates the awesome stuff G+ has to offer while providing existing users with a fun way to find and follow creators they haven’t yet, ahem, discovered. If you glance over at your left-hand navigation bar, you’ll notice a shiny ‘Discover’ tab waiting to be explored. Inside, you’ll find trending posts from curated sources in a new, denser format. Also inside are Featured Collections, Recommended Communities, and the previously announced Topics - which got a bit of a makeover as well, so be sure to check them out!


To make way for Discover, the Collections tab and the Events tab have been removed…
