A new Pew research study on teenagers' social media habits has a few surprising results. Teens are still on The Facebook en masse, with Instagram and Snapchat close behind. But 33 per cent reported using Google+. Tied with Twitter! Come again?
After Google just announced that it would be dropping the Google+ requirement for business videoconferencing this week, the search giant is planning to set loose its (fantastic) photo service, according to Bloomberg. If and when it does, you'll be able to take advantage of this pretty handy photo tool without any unwanted ties to Google+.
Google's rolling out its new your-face ads today, so here's a timely reminder on how to tell them to knock it off.
Unless you happen to work for the search giant that created it, Google+ is probably not your social network of choice. Nevertheless, there's a ton of functionality hidden behind its walls, covering everything from photos to local searches as the influence of Google+ stretches across the company's multitude of other products.

You've been dreaming of this day your entire life. You and your one true love will be joining your eternal souls in the resplendent, holy matrimony of... a Google+ hangout.

Yesterday, Google put up an ad for its Nexus 7 tablets on the US Google home page. Today, the search giant will also start rolling out birthday reminders for people in your Google+ circles.
The Nexus 7 is a big deal. Google's had to take the 16GB model off its website because orders got too high. That's right, the company stopped it because it was too successful, and that's a good thing, not just for the tablet, but for Google+. I'd even argue that the Nexus 7 tablet is the best thing to happen to Google+ since...well, ever.
