The Massive Overhaul of Google+

Standard

In case you’re on top of your Google+ page (and if you’re not – GET ON IT), you might have noticed a complete overhaul of your layout.

Here’s mine if you want to check out what I’m talking about.

These changes apply on every profile – both personal and business. Here’s a couple if the more important (i.e. “Snazzy“) features Google just rolled out for you:

– 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. What do you think of the new changes?
