Are you using the +Buffer to its full capacity?

I'd say I am.

For the Business plan one can have unlimited posts in the queue.  For the Awesome plan the limit is 200 posts.

For one of my client accounts https://twitter.com/MatkaTravelFair or on Google+ +MATKA Nordic Travel Fair, for instance in the Twitter account queue I usually have close to 500 Tweets lined up.

I'm the social media community manager for #Matkamessut  and as the audience is both international and Finnish, I tweet alternately in English and Finnish.

Depending on the day, 15-20 Tweets are scheduled but I also retweet in real time and engage with the followers.

If you're interested in the Bufferapp, here's an interview I did with +Rodolphe Dutel about the Buffer:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18gxYz4c5Ww

Disclaimer: I'm paying +Buffer for the use of the Business Plan, they're not paying me anything for advertising one of my favourite tools.

It’s now a lot easier to get straight to Google Docs when you’re signed in to other Google products. Click on the App Launcher and you’ll find Docs in the more section. 

Get shortcuts for Sheets & Slides too:

And the next time you visit sheets.google.com or slides.google.com, you’ll see the option to add Sheets and Slides to the launcher as well. Remember that you can always rearrange the icons to your liking by just clicking and dragging them around.

One note--if you’ve already customized the arrangement of your icons, you’ll need to visit docs.google.com and click “Add a shortcut” in the App Launcher to get the Docs icon to appear. 

See image below.

Underneath the clear, blue Pacific waters surrounding the Republic of Palau, dazzling jewelfish swim alongside clownfish, wrasse and butterflyfish.

The spectacular variety of corals — staghorn, tree, finger, brain and black coral — are a feast for the eyes and home to a stunning diversity of life.
Palau supports an astounding 585 hard and soft corals, more than 300 species of sponges and nearly 1,300 varieties of reef fish. These coral reefs and waters are also home to gray reef sharks, moray eels and sea cucumbers, as well as endangered species like saltwater crocodiles, sea turtles and the dugong...

One bullet per million inhabitants.

A bad year, as usually the police have actually targeted and shot towards a person 1-2 bullets per year on the 20th century.

3 people have died within 14 years from police bullets, one of them a police officer from an "accidental friendly fire" in an exercise situation.

As the Finnish police get around a million alarm functions in a year, they're doing something right.

Here's the official announcement by a Googler:
https://plus.google.com/118170059441102440825/posts/Wntg5XoEHmb

We now have 2 Notification bells instead of one. (Top / Lower Bell).

The Top bell follows you around all Google products, from Gmail to YouTube.
The bottom bell is for Google+ only and gives you more choices in how you wish to check your notifications.

Why, you may wonder?
I'll say wait and see: There's often a method in the Google+ madness! :D
Now read on and see all the screenshots in this album to learn more...

PS: When scrolling down the Home stream, if you wish to get to the top quickly, just click on the top grey area.
