Google+ Now Allows You Lock Posts and Disable Comments before Publishing

A Google+ status update from the software engineer at Google, Ebby Amirebrahimi claims that Google+ now lets you disable comments and lock posts just before you share it to your Google+ stream. Google has introduced this new feature in response to its user feedback, making an impression before its G+ community that the Google’s social networking platform respects its users’ privacy without any compromise.

Prior to the launch of this feature, Google+ users had to disable comments or lock posts once it was made public. Considering the privacy concerns of its users and making the entire process user-friendly, Google introduces this new feature that enables its user to disable comments and lock posts right before sharing the content.

Maneuvering over the share box reveals that you can’t only let you opt for which circle of friends you want to share you content with, but also let you disable comments and locking posts. However, it has not yet clear whether the feature will be available to all the G+ users or not. The Amirebrahimi status update, however, suggests that the feature is on its way and getting a healthy feedback from the entire G+ community.

Ebby Amirebrahimi states:

“We hope these features help you feel even more secure about sharing on Google+. We’ll keep listening, and rolling out more improvements in the coming weeks and months, so let us know what you think!”

He presents the video given below describing the working of new feature:

Some similar type of videos has been already been seen from Google in the past, particularly when Google+ Games Product Manager, Satyajeet Salgar disclosed some extra features for streams and posts on G+ games. Perhaps, this is a new technique adopted by Google to introduce its new features to its user-base. Regardless of the fact, this method of introducing new features to users is certainly more expressive and communicative than what we have experienced in case of other social networks.
