Interesting statistics!

Around 40% of the world population has an internet connection today (view all on a page ). In 1995, it was less than 1%.

The number of internet users has increased tenfold from 1999 to 2013.
The first billion was reached in 2005. The second billion in 2010. The third billion will be reached by the end of 2014.

Just copy the link of a Public community and paste it to the Facebook status. :-)

And vice versa: I shared the FB post here on Google+ from the timestamp link.

Anything Public can be shared by grabbing the URL to a post or a photo and pasting it to the post.

The Drive sidebar can now be sorted:
My Drive is very busy with people editing shared stuff all the time, so it's a relief I can now quickly find my own edits and opened docs.

Many mail apps use insecure sign-in standards:

* the Mail app for iOS 6 or below
* the Mail app from Windows Phone 8.0 or earlier
* some built-in Android mail apps not developed by Google
* desktop mail clients like Microsoft Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird. 

If the access to less secure apps is disabled, you'll see a "Password incorrect" error when signing in and you can't set up a Google account on your device. "Google may block sign in attempts from some apps or devices that do not use modern security standards. Since these apps and devices are easier to break into, blocking them helps keep your account safer."

For those of us who use  2-step verification: We may need to sign in using App Passwords.

My dear Circleverse, I'm sure there are experts on this area amongst you!
My son (17 years) is interested in getting something like this: Can you give advice, please?
He's never used such a thing before, that's why I'd like to stay in the cheaper versions...

One can get an even cheaper one from Amazon but looks like it's an older version of the Wacom-Intuos-Small-Tablet-CTL480 without the S.

Any help?

"Remove from Circles" is new?
"Report Spam or abuse" used to be "report post"?

Have you seen this already?

The "Mute" has been missing for many users and perhaps here's the reason, Google has been twitching things behind the scenes.  Often when glitches occur there's activity in the wings, I have noticed.

Does anyone know how to delete a +Flickr account without being forced to create a stupid Yahoo account?

Why does Yahoo need 3 months to delete a just created account?  I don't want it, never had it, just want to delete the unused Flickr because Yahoo.

Obviously to someone the meaning is different than to others ... 

Is trolling or trollish behavior:

-  An obnoxious way to try and get attention in strangers' comment threads, usually very negative, aggressive and rude texts 

- Fighting with anyone that disagrees

- Someone trying to get even with the world no matter how.

- Getting a feeling of power from antagonistic behavior

- Someone with a lousy self-esteem 

- Someone who likes to hurt people. A warped mind, perhaps

Bantering among friends is not trolling, you know your friends and how much they can take.  But do you know the limit when you might hurt someone?

What is trolling to you?
How would you define it?  Have you come up against many trolls on Google+?

Let's discuss this without trololoos, shall we? :-)

Read my latest blog article:  It's long but I hope you can finish the text. :-)

The way Sunday sits in its secret hideaway paradise
at the end of the week
It's legs carelessly kicking at the lake, 
with wet bare feet
making concentric circles in the water with its toes

That's how you make me feel.

Microsoft to cut 18,000 jobs, 12,500 of them ex-Nokia

Software company Microsoft has announced the biggest round of lay-offs in the company’s history. The firm will reduce its workforce by 18,000, and 12,500 of those will be workers transferred when Microsoft bought the Finnish company Nokia. Just under 5,000 Microsoft workers are currently located in Finland, but as yet there’s no detail on how many of them will go.
