The Power of Words: Google + Adds Ignore Button.
Recently Google + announced it would give users a polite way to get rid of bothersome people on the site. Using an ignore button, users can say “no thank you, not right now.”
This is in contrast to the much harsher and more serious “Block” feature, in which users will cut the other person off completely.
This is certainly an advancement on the social media front, as it adds to the dynamic nature of the Google + platform. Giving users a larger online ‘vocabulary’ could enhance online communication as a whole, giving users a larger social media vocabulary to work with.
So the question is: Will you use this new ‘Ignore’ feature? More importantly what kinds of behaviors/communication warrants an ‘ignore’ as opposed to a ‘Block’ ?
