New look and lack of the "+" or the Hangouts Logo

Google has been updating their logos all over the place, today is the first time I've seen it inside the Hangouts/HOA Interface.

Any thoughts?

View of my campsite last weekend near Terryall Colorado. Wonderful weekend to be camping (the weekend before Labor Day) as literally nobody was around Friday night and only one other camper/tent showed up on Saturday afternoon in the area near us.

Did you know that uploading a video to Facebook that you did not make/own is not legal? Apparently many video uploaders on FB didn't know that.

Soon FB videos will go through a more robust Content ID system similar to what YouTube has had in place for many years now. Read more about the details as well as get to the FB announcement via the linked +ReelSEO​ post below.

Facebook Content ID for Video is Coming, Addresses Freebooting

Freebooted videos on Facebook are a serious issue for many creators, but Facebook has now promised more robust rights management for licensed video content.

The only thing constant is change!

Here's a link to the Google Blog and to the YouTube Blog where these items are announced today plus I'll pull out some key quotes from the Blogs and posts about the blogs.

Google Blog Post:

YouTube Blog Post:

From +Bradley Horowitz's post (Google/Google+)...
We're going to continue focusing Google+ on helping users connect around the interest they love, and retire it as the mechanism by which people share and engage within other Google products.

...We decided it’s time to fix this, not only in YouTube, but across a user’s entire experience at Google. We want to formally retire the notion that a Google+ membership is required for anything at Google… other than using Google+ itself.

From the YouTube Blog Post...
With today’s announcement from Google+, you’ll see more changes. The comments you make on YouTube will now appear only on YouTube, not also on Google+. And vice-versa. This starts rolling out today.

Your YouTube channel
This one’s further off. In the coming weeks, YouTube will no longer require a Google+ profile when you want to upload, comment, or create a channel. If you’re happy with everything as it is now, then just keep on keepin’ on. If you want to remove your Google+ profile, you’ll be able to do this in the coming months, but do not do it now or you’ll delete your YouTube channel (no bueno)...

h/t: +Michael Daniels who brought the beginning of the rabbit hole to my attention as part of our Hangout Mastery Community... you guys ROCK!
