Google Plus introduces Polls Feature

Google Plus introduces Polls feature

Polls make it easy to get opinions from your friends and followers on the things you’re curious about. You can create polls with up to five choices and use photos to make them beautiful and engaging. Polls will always spark conversations and discussions among friends as well as communities on Google+.

Create a poll - When you create a poll, you can include up to five responses for people to choose from. You can also add photos to help explain each choice.

Editing polls: You can edit the text of your question after you ask it, but there's no way to change the choices or photos. You also can't close a poll after you start it. But if you really want to take down your poll, learn to delete your post.

Adding photos: You can upload a photo from your desktop or device camera roll, pick a photo from your Google+ Photos albums, or find an image using Google Image Search.

Deleting photos: If you delete a photo in this private, polls photo album, it will remove the photo from the poll itself.

Sharing polls: We want to make sure the results of private polls aren't shared publicly, which is which is why you can only reshare public polls. Also, if you reshare a public poll, you'll need to share it publicly -- you can't share it with particular circles or people.

Vote in a poll - If someone creates a poll on Google+, you can respond to let them know what you think. If you don't want to formally vote, you can also leave a comment or +1 the post.

A poll can be created by using the share box, just look for the Poll icon when creating a post. The feature will be available to use for profiles and pages, and can be shared into communities too.

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+.

How to leave a community:

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 - Google Plus Update

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.

From Google+:

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…
