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.

This is a great feature to use for anyone within your circle who tends to go frequently off topic. Suppose your circle is genealogy and someone spends too much time talking about the weather - in another part of the country. You can now ignore them. This helps make you more productive. And just to make sure everyone saves face, the person being ignored doesn't know that you have ticked the 'ignore' feature.

The following video from Google describes how the new 'ignore' option works.
