First up, what are the changes that Google+ announced at the I/O 2013. This post by Francis Bea rounds up 41 key changes that were shared during the conference day. With information on the new layout and auto-hashtagging, we might see more people adopting new Google+.

On the second place, we have Sherry Nouraini walk us through the new Google+ features in her own weekly hangout ‘OpenSM’. Here’s the slide pack she had used during the hangout. I agree with her on the ‘Related Topics’ feature, it’s a great way to discover information which otherwise would have missed from our radar.

On this third post, Om Malik along with Fred Gilbert share the behind the scenes effort on the new Google+. It’s interesting to hear the take on ‘flat design’ because the guys at Google wanted the content to shine through. And hence you see a gentle stream of updates and no menus on either sides. Amazing!!

So this post by Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols gives a love, hate view of new Google+. Until I read the article, had not looked at the font issue though. While the point about no updates for Hangout is quite valid. Even I would have liked to hear about some Hangout Tweaks

    IN terms of design, Google+ has improved a great deal..Love the new UI and uncluttered space (which Facebook is not doing at the moment)

      Yes, I like the clean interface and absence of menus. Though the image sizes they specify for header is way too big!
