If you haven’t heard by now Google+ has undergone a dynamic face lift and unlike that of Facebook changes this one was welcome with open arms. Although navigating through it does some getting use to.
Google Plus New Menu
This one feature is something I truly enjoy. Unlike that of Facebook where you have the top menu as well as the left side. All of which takes up valuable real estate. G+ has decided to make it hidden until you hover of click on “Home”.
In this the menu becomes more dynamic and gives you the ability to jump to right to he area you need to. In the “What’s Hot” section its the same as say what is trending on Twitter. While “Communities” are specialized groups…like Facebook. Then “Events” are scheduled Hangouts on specific topics. I could see this gaining traction as each event that is created that you attend is held for review while new ones have a unique url that can be promoted.
This is one thing I was really hoping would change in the new rollout. Until then I’ll be stuck with:
That is until getting ‘verified’ becomes standard.
Why be on Google+?
I’ll touch on this later but the benefits outweigh the cons. The bottom line is if you have a blog / website / company…you need to be on G+.
