Google just released information about the pending Google Plus update. The popular, but not the highest popular social media network out there, just got better. The reasons are several: there is a new design, a completely revamped way of how you use Google Plus and quite an interesting selection of features coming up. For many, Google Plus has been and is an unwanted child of the social media world – but in all true fairness, it does bring a whole lot to the table, that most of us haven’t really utilized or understood well enough.
Google has been talking with their users, all in order to find out how these aspects can be further upgraded: “To do so, we’ve drastically simplified nearly every aspect of the product. You’ll see this clearly in our new navigation centered around Collections and Communities. Collections let you immerse yourself in content about topics like surfing or tiny tilt-shift photography scenes. Communities enable groups of people with the same interests to join up and geek out on anything from Game of Thrones to Painting. With Collections and Communities, discovering amazing things is simple: just follow or join whatever happens to pique your interests.
But we didn’t stop with Collections and Communities; the new Google+ also makes it easier to post, search, connect, and keep up with great content in a fully redesigned home stream. And we’ve worked hard to make our new web experience load fast and work beautifully on devices of all sizes.”
Google Plus apps for iOS and Android devices will be coming in the forthcoming days. We will surely take our stab at the daily grind on this social network, giving you a first hand impression – together with reasons why – of using Google Plus for work, connect with your friends or simply, for fun. Let us know your opinion about this social media network in the comments below, we’d love to hear them.
