Google+ trends: 'Dark Shadows' star Jonathan Frid dies, Bob Marley doc on Facebook

Frid, who was 87 at the time of his death, died just weeks before the release of Tim Burton’s quirky Dark Shadows remake. Despite the sad news G+’ers are mostly talking about Tim Burton’s version of the vampire story, saying that with “Tim Burton and Johnny Depp..it's gonna be great.”

The Bob Marley documentary Marley is the first to be simultaneously launched in theaters around the globe, for rent on Facebook and on TV sets via on demand services such as iTunes, Amazon and Xbox. The documentary was released globally on April 20, a day that’s also known as 420 or “Weed Day.”

Following on from the earlier “bacon” trend, G+’ers are posting weird looking pictures of “turtle burgers” -- burgers that are often made using ground beef as the body and cut sausages as the legs and head all wrapped in layers of bacon and then cooked.

There’s a constant flow of next-gen iPhone rumors swirling around Google+, the latest of which suggest the iPhone 5 won’t be released until October. Additional iPhone talk on the social network includes rumors about new touch panel technology and Liquidmetal casing for the next generation handset.

Plussers are also calling for a stop to the US’s Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), a proposed internet bill that some are saying is “even worse than SOPA.”
