Google+ Unveils Newest Updates

Posted on 7.31.2011

Continuing their undying effort to take over the Internet, Google Chief-of-Staff Matt Waddell came out with a list of great new updates to the company's new social networking site, Google+. Here are a few of the most important new features.

Mobile Circles: Users can now re-order their circles by simply dragging them to the left or right on the Circles page. Once done, they will stay in that order consistently all across Google+. There is also now an option to crew new circles in-line from the "Add to Circle" menu, which is also all across Google+.

- +1 Improvements: The site's "+1" button will now render up to three times faster than before. In addition, Webmasters can see and test updates to the button before they launch to all of the site's users. Plus, they can now make things go even more quickly by using a new async JavaScript snippet.

- Huddle Up: Google+ will also provide more choices when it comes to group video chatting. Users can now choose who can start a huddle with them: anyone, their extended circles, or just their circles. This selection can be made by visiting "Google+ Settings" on the desktop or G+ settings on Android.

- Photo Feature: The names of photo albums can now be edited by users directly inside of Google+ by simply going to the "Photos" page, clicking "Your Albums," choosing an album, and clicking on its title.

And, as if that wasn't helpful enough, they've also added a "What's new in Google+" page that will keep track of new features and fixes that take place in the future.

Keeping up with these changes and features that are taking place with Google+ could prove to be very helpful for businesses and companies looking to join the new social networking site when that option becomes available to them in the future.
