Google+ Undergoes Massive Redesign

April 11th, 2012 at 3:23 pm

Aiming to make their social networking site easier to use, Google has introduced a bunch of physical updates on Google+.

“By focusing on you, the people you care about, and the stuff you’re into, we’re going to continue upgrading all the features you already know and love—from Search and Maps to Gmail and YouTube,” wrote senior vice president Vic Gundotra. “With today’s foundational changes we can move even faster—toward a simpler, more beautiful Google.”

The updates include a tweaked navigation menu placed on the left side of the screen that allows users to move or hide apps, conversation “cards” to highlight important discussions with friends, a dedicated Hangouts hub that highlights popular broadcasts, and an Explore page for finding trends within the user’s network.
