Google+ added ignore and block features

Google improv­ing their social net­work­ing service(Google+) since its launch. This time they came-up with ignore and block fea­tures to organ­ize the relationships.

We want to make sure you can rep­res­ent your real-life rela­tion­ships on Google+ — wheth­er you want to con­nect with someone or not 🙂 So start­ing today, we’re rolling out a new option to Ignore people, in addi­tion to the exist­ing (and stronger) option to Block them. ‑Olga Wichrowska SWE, Google 

Ignor­ing someone is simply say­ing that you are not inter­ested, maybe you don’t know them, or maybe you don’t want to see what they are sharing. 

When you ignore someone:
 — you won’t see any of their posts in the Incom­ing stream
 — you won’t get noti­fic­a­tions about their activities
 — you won’t see them on your Circles page

Block­ing someone is much stronger than Ignor­ing them — it’s simply say­ing you don’t want any­thing to do with them. 

Once you opt for block­ing someone:
 — they are removed from your circles and your exten­ded circles
 — you won’t see any of their new posts in the Stream
 — they won’t see any­thing you share with your circles
 — and they can’t com­ment on your posts
