Google+ Gets An Update
Google has rolled out a new design for its social network Google+.
The biggest change is the new Navigation Ribbon. Instead of static icons, applications are now on a dynamic ribbon on the left of the page for expanded navigation capabilities.
“You can drag apps up or down to create the order you want; you can hover over certain apps to reveal a set of quick actions; you can show or hide apps by moving them in and out of ‘More’,” the internet search giant wrote on its blog.
Other new features include: a dedicated place for ‘Hangouts’, an ‘Explore’ page for trending stories, and the capability for larger photos and videos to be uploaded to the site.
The internet search giant hopes that its users will find the “more functional and flexible version of Google+… easier to use and nicer to look at, but most importantly, it accelerates our efforts to create a simpler, more beautiful Google”.
Should Facebook be warned?
