Google+ Launches New Look & Features
Google+ beat Facebook to the punch with the launch of its new look, along with 41+ new features.

How long have we been waiting for the new Newsfeed after the BIG announcement? Ages. Google+ quietly launched this massive overhaul without a ton of fanfare and false promises.

Sure, some folks are saying it’s a little like Pinterest, but images engage and Google+ has taken that to heart. On top of a new look and a new graphic intense layout, Google+ has added a TON of functionality, including:

  • a multi-column, responsive layout (you can opt for single column if you prefer)
  • incredible hashtag integration
  • addition of a conversation history
  • free 1 to 1 video calls (part of Hangouts)
  • and much, much more …

They undersold and over-delivered, as I see it. Sure, it will take some getting used to. and there will be some naysayers. But it’s up, it’s working and we didn’t sign up  on a waiting list set to engage in a lengthy waiting game.

Tell us what you think!

New Google+: Stream, Hangouts, and Photos

  • Malaysians and Indonesians are so obsessed with Facebook & Twitter. I use Facebook for my business engagement most of the time.

    • I still like using Facebook, however your right Ishak, one really needs to be a strategic thinker when it comes to the most effective way to use these platforms. Thank you for adding your input.

    I still am not quite prepared to make a mass exodus from Facebook. But I get closer every day!

    • Facebook will continue on no doubt, but it sure is nice to have options. 🙂 So I kind of feel the same way as you.

  • It’s wonderful Mallie! It is full of great post’s and it’s not some glorified photo album. Thumbs down Facebook. Thumbs up Plus!
