Google Mail, Plus Changes and the Oscars Will Stream Live | This Week in Social Media

Google+ for Android phones gets photo editing funness

Android users with Google+ accounts just got a nice upgrade to that app and its use of pictures. The updategives users a variety of new editing options with their photos, including: filters, cropping, rotating, and Snapseed-inspired enhancements (like Drama, Retrolux, and HDR Scape). The basic layout has changed too, giving users a simpler view of all photos in their library – unless you’re one of those people with thousands and thousands of photos. You’ll have to wait a bit longer to see everything at once…or start deleting those extra photos of Grumpy Cat you keep around.

Unsubscribe made easy

If you’re sick and tired of those marketing e-mails you signed up for in college to get a free pizza and could never figure out how to get them to stop coming – you’re in luck. This week Google announced a change to its Gmail program to give users a simple and easy way to unsubscribe to those pesky e-mails. Instead of combing the message for the unsubscribe like you will now be given the option to unsubscribe from the e-mail with a link at the top of the e-mail. While it may be a nice change for consumers, some businesses that rely on e-mail marketing may not find the change as helpful.

Who needs TV to watch the Oscars? Not you.
