Status Check

words and lyrics by Jean-Loup

By now you've probably all heard about Google+ closing down for consumers in August 2019. I just wanted to let you all know that I intend to continue posting my weekly flower pictures here until I am no longer able to, at which point posts will shift to my blog. Details on that to come on a later post.

Meanwhile I'm on holiday for just over a week so I'm looking forward to a bit of rest and catching up with my projects and other things around the house I need to do.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend, despite all the hurricanes and the weather going crazy worldwide.

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

Good news if you're a paying G+ user, new features coming your way

words and lyrics by Jean-Loup

Well folks the days of free social networking are officially over, they once existed here on G+ as a pipe dream but Google have since wisened up to the fact that the value of free users (or "consumers" as they call us) is not worth investing into. If your company is willing to part up with lots of cash every month that's a different story, and if you're a capitalist that's only logical but I thought Google was better than this, clearly I was mistaken.

So +G Suite users enjoy your headings and organised tags and all sorts of new features us "consumers" have been asking for for years, hopefully they make your G+ experience enjoyable for many years to come…

Check out Jason Becker's new song Valley of Fire

words and lyrics by Jean-Loup

Performed by "The Magnificent 13", this 9-minute long song composed by Jason Becker, still alive and full of music in spite of his crippling condition, will rock your socks off. Performers include Marty Friedman, Paul Gilbert, Steve Vai, Greg Howe, Mattias Eklundh, Jeff Loomis and others, each playing Jason's music, yet each keeping their own unmistakable style.

It is a testament of the power of music that can transcend even the most paralysing condition, it is also the first song from Jason's upcoming album Triumphant Hearts available from the 7th of December.

Oh Google, you're so ironic you should be an Alanis Morissette song

words and lyrics by Jean-Loup

Google's guiding principle is the same as it’s been for 20 years—to respect our users and put them first.

Is that what you call what you're doing to all your dedicated G+ users: respect??
