Google Tips, Google Provides Simple Explanations of How to Use Its Many Services

I’m very glad to see some effort in this area. As Google products continue to evolve and become better feature creeped more elaborate, there seem to be features that are announced once and if you don’t read about it or learn it right off the bat chances are you’re just going to miss out on the feature.
While this is an interesting start of what seems to be a subset of features that Google thinks we should all know by now, I would be cool to have continued efforts into this Google-Educated space to push common users into power users more frequently.

MyPermissions is a simple concept but it definitely achieves what it sets out to do. Best of all – you don’t actually have to grant the site access to your accounts in order to use it. The page acts as an online bookmark, and as long as you’re logged in to your accounts, all you have to do is click the link of any given service and you’ll be taken straight to your app permissions page. (via Clean Up Your App Permissions with MyPermissions)

This is a great activity that everyone should take a few minutes to look at. Even just to make sure they’re what you expected.

Time To Reach 10 Million Users


Wow. Of course, Facebook (and MySpace) have greased the wheels to make a Social Network a “must have” for everyone, regardless of demographic, world wide. Hopefully Google can maintain vision while refining their product to keep people using it.
