Google+ from the day of its launch has been the topic of discussion. It has gained both positive and negative feedbacks. Its comparison with other social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter has always been the hottest topic on the Internet. But irrespective of such feedback, Google+ is taking strong steps and is gaining popularity among the masses. Facebook has already sensed a threat in the growing popularity of Google+ and is keen to roll out new features to keep the users glued to Facebook.
And just yesterday or may be two days back Google+ came out with a completely new look, the images and videos are larger and navigation customizable. The design fits well with the new streamlined Google look. I have listed some of the new features below ……
Bigger Photos and Videos :-
Google+ was already doing a great job with the images and videos, this new change will surely draw more attention to it. Additionally, a new ‘insta-gallery’ will appear whenever you hover over a photo making it easy to view a complete set of images.
Profile pages resembling to Facebook Timeline :-
One of the biggest changes that you will notice is the Timeline like look of your profile pages. Its not completely like Timeline but resembles much to it. A user can upload a picture that will be seen horizontallly alongside the profile picture. This of course looks more professional than its previous look.
Navigation Ribbon :-
One of the most beautiful feature included in this layout is the navigation ribbon on the left. It is fully customizable and allows user to move apps up and down according to its personal preference. This is one feature that will please you at once.
There is another “Hangouts” page where you can navigate using the navigation ribbon. Hangouts have become easier to manage with this new layout.
Final Words :-
This are some of the interesting features that Google+ now has. If you want a detailed report about this upgrade then please read the official Google blog post.
Also please do comment about what you feel about this new look and whether it is good or bad from its previous look. We will be more than happy to have your comment.
