Google’s new photo app update (which separates the service from Google+) has at least one major problem: The service’s auto-tagging feature identifies some black people as gorillas. A Google developer’s response to the situation: “Holy Fuck.”
Google+ has had a rocky start, and one of its problems has been its skewed gender ratio — the social networking platform remains overwhelmingly male. Now one user is arguing that the way to fix this is to make it easier for users to report sexual harassment on the service. Does Google+ need a special harassment button?
