Google Plus New Look

Google Plus has had a major overhaul to the look and feel. When companies redesign something as much as they have on Google Plus, they always run the risk of loosing individuals who simply do not like the changes. There were quite a few people who felt this way about Facebook and their new Timeline profile page. 

In the Google Plus case, the change is very dramatic. If you have had a Google Plus account for a while and use it, the changes will effect you more as you may have already been in a routine. For the people who have not used it, or not logged in awhile, you should have not problem getting used to it quickly. 

There are eight icons on the left for each of the categories provided by Google Plus. The navigation is very easy to use. Also look for tabs on top of each category to sort your Circles.

Nearly all of the categories are the same as in the past however there is one new one. The new category is called Explorer. With Explorer you will see a feature this is pretty much like twitter. There are hash marks for popular items and it updates some of the most popular items being talked about on Google Plus. 

Google has done a great job of pulling some of the best features of Facebook and Twitter into their own product. It is so close in some aspects that they might run into trouble in the future. 

Well, for now you should really try it out. It is a great social website that, at this point, doesn't have ads. If you are starting to have trouble using Facebook because of all of the added new features, try Google Plus. This is similar to what happened with Myspace, they got so complicated that users switched to something they could use more easily.
