Google+ Revamps Photos, Stream Control and Notifications

Google is busy improving its somewhat young social network. It’s been a while that Google is busing improving its social network through changes or introducing new features. Most of these changes are made in context with the users’ feedback and demands.

Continuing the trend, Google has made some recent changes to some of its Google+ features. One of the new features introduced is known as ‘Volume Control’. Although, the name implies that it is something related to sound volume, it is not actually the case. It is, in fact, a slider that enables users to fine-tune their streams and opt whether they want to see more or less items from any particular circle.

A new lightbox has been introduced to the Google+ Photos that sports improved navigation and photo-tagging. The new lightbox also focuses on the actual photos with emphasis being on hiding majority of the navigation elements.

Google has also revamped Google+ Pages with a number of few more features. Different brands using Pages will now able to designate up to 50 managers as administration for a Page.

Moreover, the managers will be able to participate in all the activity going on a Page. This will make it easier for them to take care of all the activity taking place on the Page. The video embedded below will give you a better idea about the new features and how they work.

Google has also revamped the notifications in its Google Bar. The new notifications appear as red icons on the right-side of the Bar. On clicking the little red box, you can see the small bits that will help you to have an overview of what’s going on your Google+ profile, such as all the +1s and shares you received.
