How to stop Google+ “+1s” from showing up in everyone’s stream/newsfeed?

aiden

One of the new changes to the Google+ app is that when someone “+1s” something, it shows up much like something that was directly shared with your circles. Is there a way to stop this? I know it’s not that big of a deal, but I don’t want to clutter up everyone’s stream when I +1 something.

Yes, but you will have to dig around to change it. There was a guide on Android Central recently that should walk you through it. http://www.androidcentral.com/google-plus-update-plus-one-history

Wstark has a good answer already, but I wouldn't worry too much about it. Most people have used Facebook, and Facebook Likes show up in news feeds. So I don't think it's all that big of a deal, I've never had anybody complain about it. Plus, they can probably hide the post if they don't want to see it.
