What is your opinion about Google`s new idea to promote Google plus using arrow in Google home page?
Oh, is that what it is? I thought Google was just trying to poke me in the eye.
I find it a bit distracting, but it's not likely to make me join anymore than just it existing in the first place.
I think it's a really good idea. A little distracting but I'm sure it will be removed eventually.
I think that they are showing everyone that it is ok to overly promote something that is not entirely relevant from a trusted website. I give up on google webmaster because they don't like people doing things like this but I guess it is ok for google to do it.
I think that Google should not mix social things with their traditional search. They should develop a social search page like they were formerly doing with Twitter feed (Google Realtime) but for some reason they shut it down.
I wonder what facebook are thinking.. Hmm! I am going to ask this question soon
SInce I already have a Google+ account, I just see the blue arrow as a way to remind me that I can get to my profile by going up to the left-hand corner of the screen, as well as going up to right-hand corner of the screen. So I just see it as a little bit of "get-to-your-Google-profile" over-kill, but if they want to offer a second option for me to get to my Google+ profile - it's fine.
I am not always a fan of product promotions, but Google's low key marketing arrow sure beats other forms of advertising, such as spamming your inbox.
I think over time we will see the removal of the arrow as Google + is still trying to get a foothold on the realm of social networking.

What is your opinion on people who join in Hubpages just to promote something?When I Hub Hop, I often encounter overly promotional Hubs. And when you visit the Hubber's profile, you'll only see 1 or 2 posts, and both are used to promote something (i.e. their products, etc). What's your view on this?

Do you think it's a good or bad idea to write an opinionated hub on a "touchy" subject?I do not mean offensive, obscene, etc... just strongly opinionated.
