Just a day ahead of Facebook’s announcement about major changes coming to your newsfeed, Google+ has revealed a few updates that they are making to their social network.
This morning, Google employee Sara McKinley detailed the changes in a post on her Google+ account:
“We spend lots of time listening to your feedback, and today we’re launching some profile and page updates that you’ve been asking for. These include:
- A new tab for your Local reviews. In addition to your photos, +1′s and YouTube videos, there’s now a place for all your Local reviews. Highlight your favorite restaurants, or hide the tab completely via settings — it’s completely up to you.
- An easier way to edit your info. The ‘About’ tab now consists of separate cards (like Story, Places, and Links) — each with its own prominent edit link. As always: you can share specific fields with specific circles, or keep them just for you.
- Bigger cover photos, with a better aspect ratio. Cover photos are much larger than before (up to 2120px by 1192px), and they display in 16×9 when fully expanded. This way more images can be used as cover photos, and there’s more room for your selection to shine.
Everything’s rolling out gradually, so check back soon if you don’t see it yet. Once it’s live (at plus.google.com/me), let us know your thoughts in the comments!”
