Google+ photo tagging now features automatic facial recognition

Google's social network site just keeps getting better and better these days.

Google Plus adds hashtags and real-time search [Video]

Google+ is in the news today. In a rare appearance by engineering SVP Vic Gundotra himself, today's Google Plus update will introduce real-time search and full working hashtag support, much like how Twitter currently is. The new update is said to be rolling out in stages today and I've just tried it with no such luck but we can expect to see it available for everyone shortly. Real-time search is a big one here as shown in the video when you search for say, Androids, you get full results as well as a notification when something new is posted and can simply click to see the latest Android news (or come to Android Community of course).

One of the biggest improvements I see right away is the +mentions now autofill from your Circles. Something that worked great online but was not as easy on the mobile application.

LinkedIn Android app gets HTML5 update

One of the places that I tend to have more contact with co-workers and other professional types is on LinkedIn. Most of the requests I get are from people that I don’t know. On occasion, I have found work and cool gear to play with via LinkedIn so it can be useful for professionals. If you have a LinkedIn profile and want to be able to access, it on the road the Android app has been around for a while now.
