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.

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.

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
