New Google+ Community Badge

The new Google+ Community Badge for Blogger

Here is a quick roundup of some of the latest happenings in the social media world.


Facebook introduced a simplified interests targeting option for marketers. The company also appears to be testing several potential changes to its Home Android.


Users of the Blogger platform can now promote Google+ Communities on the blogs with the new Community Badge.

YouTube rolled out several new updates to fight the increasing spamming issues triggered by the new commenting system. The updates include recognition of bad links and impersonation attempts and a different way of displaying long comments.

We’re moving forward with more improvements to help you manage comments on your videos better. Bulk moderation has been a long standing creator request and we’ll be releasing tools for that soon. At the same time, we’re also working on improving comment ranking and moderation of old-style comments.
