  4. Google Play Integrates Google+, Say Goodbye to Anonymous Reviews

    As we're almost certainly all aware, anonymity and the Internet tend to go hand in hand, but it also allows for a vast amount of people to be horrible to others with almost no culpability. There's no guarantee that removing anonymity would actually stem the tide of trolls, but it's an argument folks make on the regular. Thanks to a recent update, Google Play is no longer a haven for such activity. In order to post reviews, users now have to do so with their Google+ account. Bummer.

From here on out, your vanilla Google search will also include personal results from your Google+ account. Obviously, if you don't have a Google+ account, this isn't going to affect you too much; but even if you have one you don't frequently use it, you'll probably start noticing a few changes. The three big elements as Google lays them out are the addition of Personal Results, Profiles in Search, and People and Pages.

  8. Google+ Rolling Out Improvement to News Feed, Pages, Lightbox

    Just in time for the new year, Google will be rolling out a series of improvements to its social network Google+. None of the changes are particularly earth-shattering, but they seem to be the kind of usability fixes that will greatly benefit the people who use those features a lot. Though none of these will draw people to the site, they should make the people who are there happy, which seems to be Google's primary goal so far. They include the new ability to give different circles different "volumes" in your feed, improved notifications, improvements to Google Pages, and an improved Lightbox for photo viewing.

    Ever since Google+ opened up for public use, had a huge traffic spike, and then dropped back off, the social network has continued to take a backseat to Facebook for most. Google+ does have it's faithful users however, and Google is in no way throwing in the towel when it comes to updating the network and making it more and more appealing for the people who use it, and the people who might be interested in coming back to revive their idle account. One of the newest and definitely the most interesting of these improvements is "Ripples." By viewing a public post's ripples, you get access to a whole bunch of information that all social networks collect, but generally keep close to their chests. Not only can you see who shared what with who, growing out in a series of concentric circles, but you can also go back and replay the sharing in scaled time, so you can actually watch how something blew up, even if you didn't catch it until it was already big.
