Ignore And Block People On Google Plus [In Google+ New Design]

With the changing design of Google+, the feature to Ignore and Block people is also changed. It may be hard for you to explore all that, but i am writing this post again as per the new design to help you out to ignore or block people you don't want to see again, i wish that was possible in real life too, anyways, here we go.

Blocking will result in

# You won't see their content in your stream (even though you'll remain in their circles).

# They'll be removed from any circles of yours that they appear in.

#They'll be removed from your extended circles, even if you have mutual connections.

# They won't be able to add new comments to your content. However, comments they made before you blocked them will still be visible and can be deleted or reported.

# They won't be able to see your comments on other people's posts.

# They won't be able to view any of your posts that you share after blocking them.

# They won't be able to mention you in posts or comments.

Note: After you block someone, the content you've previously shared with them will still be visible in their Home page. They can't engage with the post (comment, etc.)

How To Block Someone on Google+

# Login to your Google+ Account.

# Visit the profile of the person you want to Block.

# Under his profile photo, you will find People in His Circle, but that is not. Under that block you will find your option 'Block Mr. XXX'

# A confirmation pop-up will open, click on Block and you are done with blocking that person.

Now lets start with Ignoring the people who have you in their Circle.

Ignoring will result in:

# They'll be removed from the list of ‘Have you in circles.’
# Their mentions of you won't appear on your Home page and you won't receive a notification for them.

It was kind of hard to find how to ignore people but its easy for you now, just follow the steps

How To Ignore People on Google+

# Login to your Google+ Account.

# Head to the Circles tab, and on that page select the option "Have you in circles". Under it you will see all people who have you in their Circles.

# Select the person you want to ignore, and click on the Actions button and select Ignore in the drop-down list. Refer the graphic below

# And the person will be Ignored.

How to see Ignored or Blocked people list on Google+

# Head to Circles page, and click on the Actions button, and click on the View Blocked or View Ignored option. Refer the image above.

  2. So you cannot ignore someone unless you remove them from your circle first? Doesn't that seem kind of dumb? I have many people in circles that I don't want to remove, but still don't want to see the 1000 posts they do every day.

  3. I don't have any of the ignore options in any of the places you show in this video. The ignore option just does not exist. Very Frustrating. Is this just outdated, or is there some other reason for this FAIL?
