You can now pin Google+ posts to the top of your profile


google plus pinned post

Have one especially important post that you need EVERYONE to see once they land on your Google+ page? The latest feature added by Google is right up your alley. You can now pin posts to the top of your page. This would be insanely useful for developers or companies who need to share important information about updates and upcoming products, but your average user can get just as much use out of it, as well.

You can’t pin everything — Google limits you to just one at a time — so think long and hard about what, exactly, you want the first thing to be shown when people visit your profile. Or you could, you know, opt not to use it. Totally up to you. Head to the Posts tab on your profile page and hit the dropdown menu of whichever post you want to pin in order to access the new feature.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Gonna pin a picture of my hiney… definitely important for everyone to see it first

  2. lolGoogle+.

    This should be useful to the zero people that actually use that terrible social network. It’s not even an original idea, they pretty much just ripped off Twitter.

      1. We know that Google employees and their Googlebots do; I was talking about actual people.

    1. I love Google +, the people there have a different vibe than Facebook.

    2. I use Google+ daily and love it. So that’s a great feature if you wanna you it

    3. I love G+ too.

      Ripped off Twitter? I think there were multiple services before Twitter that Twitter borrowed from…

  3. Google needs to unpin Google+ from their portfolio.

    1. Google+ is awesome. Google will not stop supporting Google+ as it’s part of their strategy.

    2. G+ is great, I’ve been using it since it came out. Kinda like a cross between Twitter and Facebook!

  4. Is this feature really necessary? G+ already forces you to view your timeline from the “What’s hot” perspective. If you need to pin something that bad, bookmark it. Google+ really needs borrow a page from the book of Ello here and just go out and function differently from FB.

    1. You don’t have to use it…

      1. Use what Google+ or the Pin feature? Either way, I kinda thought that was a basic choice of my own free will… Whether or not to use something…. Who knew!?

  5. I could definitely see this being useful!

    I just tried using it and don’t see that feature yet, must be a slow roll out.
