Google+ was Google’s attempt at social networking. It languished for a while without a clear identity, and it looked for a while that Google abandoned the effort to grow it. Well, Google+ is back with a new design.
According to Google, Google+ is now “Communities and Collections front and center.” Not sure what all that fully means, but if you use those features, you may find the new design more attractive.
To enable the new Google+ design, you need to follow the steps below:
- Go to Google+ Activity Log page.
- Click on the search box at the top of the page.
The new layout will be activated once you click in the box. You will see “Featured Collections” populate the page.
I do have a Google+ page, but I don’t regularly use it. I subscribed to a few Google-related pages and that’s about the only reason I keep up with the updates. You may find the new design more useful than before.
