In the example notifications below: Both were shared "directly" with me.. the top one was "public" and the second was "limited".
The limited one is simple to understand as it seems it was only shared with me – Why I have a supposed 6th grader sharing to me direct and limited is beyond me, somewhat strange and in some ways I think a way to block those under specific ages might actually be something to think about as depending on the truth of that share – I am not sure many 6th graders should be on social networks at all without parental supervision or at least guidance.
In the first share am i correct in saying that the only way to share to public but also to share direct is to check the notifications box to alert those in your public circle that you posted.?
I have seen a ton of direct share, notified posts this past week… as in a major surge in them… So either something changed, or this is the new G+ way to spam people, or simply people do not know what some check boxes or settings do when they use them.. or possibly they do not care.
Anyone have any incites?
