Google+ Just Got a Little More Antisocial

Google+, the antisocial social network, just got another tool to keep annoying people and their vapid crap out of your virtual life. You can now Ignore people who you have in your circles instead of blocking or unfollowing them.

Ignoring someone isn't a total friendship embargo—they can still comment on your posts and tag you in stuff—but it's a good way to deal with friends you added in the nascent days of the network and don't quite have the heart to banish completely.

That sounds like something I would use all the time.

Wish Facebook had that.

Interesting feature, but how is it ignoring someone if they can still post and comment on all of your stuff? O.o

thanks for the comment, i've hear that google + is like facebook, but it is more customized... but i think that is ok for those people that spend a lot of time in facebook

that's a special thing Google is doing, not a fan though.

I'm trying to avoid it but I need to go ahead and get my google 1 account set up. Yet another social media account...

In facebook you can do the same thing by hiding posts on your homefeed from certain people. Just click the x in the top right corner of one of their posts. Also useful for hiding apps like farmville and shit like that.

I got google + the other week, and nobody I know is on there... or maybe they're all ignoring me already?

I actually think this is a great function. Good for people that are just there for contacts.
