Google+ Introduces an 'Ignore' Option

 

Here is a feature that Google+ users will want to know - how to ignore someone. A new feature was introduced by Google on Friday that allows you to only see content from people that interest you. Basically, the new 'ignore' option allows you to hide content from people you want to interact with but don't necessarily want to read everything they say.
