Week in Review - July 23, 2016: YouTube Penalties, Google+ Web Preview, Bubble Zoom for Comics

This week YouTube made a creator-friendly change to strike penalties: now they only last 3 months and your channel (mostly) won’t be penalized. They also redesigned the channel Status and Features page.

Google+ Web Preview got a nice update, with Related Collections displayed on post pages and a redesign of the format of reshared posts. Google+ Create India also launched, and is looking for Indian creators to apply.

And just in time for Comic-Con, Google Play Books made it easier to read comics with the new Zoom Bubble feature

Plus there are more updates and tips for YouTube, live broadcasters, Google+, Google Photos, Local Businesses, Blogger, AdSense and more.

  1. Google has taught me so much even before I wanted to learn they was always close by me. <3
