When Google+ released games, they made the wise decision of keeping all invitations, gifts and help requests separate to the main feed. This was a case of Google using their common sense and keeping the community happy as a large majority of people don’t want to be invited to join a virtual mafia every 5 posts.

Google have (again) had the common sense to add a simple “Mute game notifications” button. It is these simple touches that Facebook lacked in my opinion but Google are taking the comfortability of their users into serious consideration. If you are in search of this button, wait for a game notification to come in and then look for something similar to the picture below:

I’m not sure about you guys but for me it’s the simple things in life.
Well done Google.
