Week in Review - April 16, 2016: Facebook Live & Video, AdSense, Google+

This week was Facebook’s F8 developer conference, so lots of Facebook-related announcements about live streaming, videos, VR, instant articles and more. (Google will have its turn with Google I/O May 18-20).
Google updates this week: On Google+ there are Community spam filters and improved search results, Google Photos for Android has manual backup, AdSense is now available for Filipino websites and has new defenses against clickjacking, Google Calendar lets you set Goals, and much more!
