Unexpected visitors

words and lyrics by Jean-Loup

Scottish summers, don't you love them? One day it's bright sunshine, the next it's pouring down. Luckily the impromptu barbecue we're going to tomorrow should be met with sunshine but that's not to say we should go unprepared…

For +FloralFriday curated by +Eustace James +Beth Akerman +Kiki Nelson and +Tamara Pruessner

Also for #joinindaily with +Johnny Wills for today's theme "Bees, Wasps and Butterflies"

Google+ launches new "Discover" section

words and lyrics by Jean-Loup

Actually I'm not sure whether that's actually new or if it's a revamped version of something they tried to launch a few months back. Also I'm posting about this a little later than originally announced due to the fact that this had to be rolled back for a short period of time after the initial launch for some unknown reason.

I'm not gonna lie, I don't really see this new section as being particularly useful. By design it's supposed to appeal to our own interests probably based on what we post about. Certainly I see a lot of topics I'm interested in in the pill carousel at the top but I also see some I have no interest in. And therein lies the problem with sections like these which are supposed to be "tailored": I have no way to tell the algorithm that such topics are not interesting to me.

The post selection below the pill carousel, I don't know if it's supposed to be tailored too but while I see some interesting things (most of which are already in my stream), I see other posts I would really, really, really rather no see at all and again there is no way for me to say "I don't like this and don't want to ever see this again".

This update also comes with some shuffling of things around, namely events have been moved to our profiles (which is fine), collections are also confined to profiles (Discover is technically supposed to replace what was "Featured Collection" but if you actually want to see featured collections you'll have to do quite a bit of scrolling). Communities have been all brought into a single page as it once was, which to me is possibly the best improvement of the bunch.

Now we just have to wait and see what consequences this will have on our Collection followings. I'm expecting them to drop quite a bit but we'll see…

Find content and communities from all across Google+ with Discover

Big news today Google+! We’re rolling a brand new Discover stream to help you and new users find the absolutely best content our network has to offer. 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!

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.

To make way for Discover, you may have noticed we removed the Collections tab and the Events tab. Don’t worry! Collections and Events aren’t gone; they’ve just been moved. ‘Featured Collections’ have a new home within Discover and ‘Your / Followed Collections’ can be found by clicking on ‘Communities and Collections’ on your profile. Events can now be found in the overflow menu (three dots) on your profile when you can also find your Insights.

These changes will be live on web and iOS within the next day or so for all users. As always, please let us know what you think by replying to this thread or using the ‘Send Feedback’ option on web or in-app. Enjoy!
