Google+ add verification badges to Celeb profiles

Google plus has finally added the ability to verify your account if you are a public figure or a celebrity – in the same way that Twitter does, so that you know if you following/circling/talking the “real thing”. All you need to do to confirm the verification is roll your mouse over the tick beside the name and you will see that is is verified like I have on Dolly Parton’s account above.

Reports are saying that it was “unintentionally” leaked. Strangley enough you can sign in via Facebook or Twitter – no mention of Google+ though.

I don’t know if you are like me but I hate numbers – I go to all lengths to avoid these numbers that they give us for personal links on various websites. So I’ve been trying to find out how to change the long number (its 21 digits!) on the Google+ Profile ID to my Google mail name.  which I thought was an option, but it has disappeared. The short answer  is that officially at present you cannot change the extended URL; while Google plus is on “Field Trial” When its out of trial  you should be able to do […]
