Below, with more than a hint of my own tastes, I’ve screenshot some of what I consider to be dispiriting Google Trends (one of the more fun uses of Trends).

With social media authentication a common sight across the web, Google takes it one step further with their latest Google+ Sign-In.
With many questioning the worth of Google+ as a social media channel, there needed to be a change in their marketing model to give brands and publishers a reason to invest time into the platform. So, bright and early on the morning of February 26th, Google introduced Google+ Sign-In to the web community.
Now it is possible for users to sign into a website via Google and bring along their information from the Google+ social graph for an “upgraded experience”; something Facebook and Twitter have been doing for a long time.
