Chrome, Genealogy, Facebook, More: Friday Morning Buzz, March 7, 2014

Google has released an update for Chrome. Since this includes 19 security updates, I recommend you upgrade…

Flipboard has acquired Zite (press release).

The National Genealogical Society will stream ten sessions from its upcoming NGS 2014 Family History Conference. The sessions are not free; you will have to pay to access them. You can get them live, or you can play them back an unlimited number of times for 90 days after the conference.

Hat tip to Smashing Magazine for this pointer to Free Google+ Training Manuals. Six PDFs covering a variety of Google+ topics. And by free I mean free; there’s no registration required, you don’t have to give your e-mail address, etc.

From PC World (Warning! PC World!) – Facebook’s news feed redesign is on the way. Is it just me or does it look kind of Tumblresque?

Vine has changed its terms of service and will no longer allow sexually-explicit content. I thought that was already the case….

Google has brought indoor Google Maps to India.

Nice one from Hongkiat.com: 10 Chat Tools for Better Communication in Team Projects. Good morning, Internet…
