Meet the new Google+

Enjoy a beautiful new way to explore the stuff you love, and dive deeper into the things you like with related hashtags.

The company added 41 new features to Google+ as a part of an effort to make it smarter and more intuitive, with the help of bigger pictures and related hashtags.

The update includes a multi-column layout. Depending on the screen size and orientation — and what kind of device you’re using — there will be one, two or three columns. Photos take center stage and fill the entire width of the stream, as a part of an effort to make it easier for users to scan the site.

“Behind the scenes, we’ll also identify and rank relevant conversations across the network,” Google said. “When you click on the related hashtag, we’ll flip the card, and let you browse related content inline.”

Google also announced a series of features to improve photos. For example, Auto Awesome — yes, it’s actually called that — uses a set of photos in your library to create an animated GIF.

Auto Enhance is a filter that improves brightness, contrast, saturation and so on of pictures, and Auto Highlight helps you assemble albums easier.

“Auto Highlight helps you find your favorites faster by de-emphasizing duplicates, blurry images and poor exposures, and focusing instead on pictures with the people you care about, landmarks, and other positive attributes,” the company said.

Google announced 190 million people are now active in the Google+ stream, while 390 million are active across Google, including +1’ing apps in Google Play, making video calls in Gmail and sharing videos from YouTube.

Subway Founder Fred DeLuca to Deliver Opening Remarks at International Franchise Expo

Founder of the Fastest-Growing Franchise to Attend New York City Franchise Event

The International Franchise Expo (IFE) will welcome the founder of Subway restaurant, Fred DeLuca, to kick off the industry’s premier annual event. DeLuca will share personal remarks during the IFE’s opening ceremony that begins at 9:50 a.m. June 20 at the Javits Center in NYC.

“We are elated to have Fred Deluca as part of the IFE this year,” said Tom Portesy, President and CEO of MFV Expositions, producers of the show. “Fred brings an incredible perspective on franchising, one which he is uniquely qualified to offer. We are extremely grateful Fred agreed to participate and look forward to his contribution to opening ceremonies along with the thousands of current and future entrepreneurs from across the United States and from around the world who will join us.”

The billionaire cofounder of the Subway sandwich restaurant chain was born in 1948 in New York City. At the age of 17, DeLuca created his first sandwich store after an idea came to him from a family friend. He began this venture to raise funds for college where he wanted to study medicine, but his restaurants eventually took over his life. Subway now has 39,000 locations in 101 countries and was deemed the fastest growing franchise in the world.

More than 400 franchise brands will be on display for the public at the 22nd Annual IFE that is sponsored by International Franchise Association. The three-day show draws thousands of entrepreneurs to the Javits Center in New York City seeking franchise opportunities. Taking place June 20 -22, prospective business owners, the top franchise brands and current franchisees have the rare opportunity to meet face-to-face with one another.

In addition to the 400+ brands, the IFE offers the most comprehensive conference on franchising, including more than 70 free seminars along with serious in-depth symposiums. This is a one of a kind opportunity to meet entrepreneurs from the United States and more than 90 countries from around the world.

Instagram: Introducing “Photos of You”

Yesterday, Instagram introduced Photos of You and is bringing you a new way to share and discover stories on Instagram. When you upload a photo to Instagram, you’re now able to add people as easily as you add hashtags. Only you can add people to your photos, so you have control over the images you share. And it doesn’t stop at people—you can add any account on Instagram, whether it’s your best friend, favorite coffee shop or even that adorable dog you follow.

Instagram Photos of You Instagram Photos of You

There will now be a Photos of You section on your profile. When someone adds you to a photo, you’ll receive a notification and the photo will appear in your Photos of You. Want to make sure you like the photo first? No problem: you can easily adjust your settings so nothing appears on your profile until you approve it. Before your Photos of You section is visible to other people, you’ll have until May 16th to play around and get used to the feature. You can find more information about how Photos of You works and how to control your visibility at help.instagram.com.
