Weekly Update - September 17, 2016: YouTube Community, Google+ Scheduling, Cardboard Camera

My favorite updates this week:
  • YouTube introduced the new “Community” tab (on a limited number of channels)
  • You can now use social media management services like Hootsuite to schedule posts to Google+ Profiles
  • The Google Cardboard Camera app now lets you share your VR Images
Plus there are updates and tips for YouTube Analytics, Local Business owners, live streaming, AdSense, Google Photos, Gmail, Outlook and more. 

Other topics I'm following: 
  • Do Facebook's automated spam filters and removal of flagged content amount to censorship? (see "Other social media")
  • AdBlock Plus now sells ads  (see "AdSense and advertising")
  • Apple iMessage and Facebook Messenger as app platforms (see "Hangouts and Messaging")
  • The EU's proposed changes to copyright law - good, bad, terrible? (See "More around the web")
