Google have released a nice and much needed feature to Google+ allowing us to control who can notify us on the social network. I have to admit it’s been released with good timing as I’ve been subject to a couple of users spamming me with a different type of game notification throughout the day (who were swiftly removed from my circles). In previous posts I joked about creating an “ignore” circle but it seems that can be an automated reality now with this update as you block (in a sense) any notifications coming from within that circle.
The settings control who you will receive notifications from when they:
- Share with you on an individual basis
- Mention your name using the “+” feature
- Invite you to a hangout
- Invite you to play a game or send a message related to that game
- Notify you about posts related to circles you are in
