Google Revamps Google+ Service

Yesterday, Google announced that it would be redesigning Google+, despite rumours that they were planning on scrapping the service.

The new version of Google+ will focus on two key areas of its existing site; “communities” and “collections.”

The “communities” area allows users to find relevant topics and explore personal interests. “Collections” is a feature which is very similar to Pinterest. Users can add posts, images and videos to relevant topics, depending on what they like.

Google wants to make it easier for users to share on these areas of the site, whether they are accessing it from a desktop or mobile device.

In their blog post, Google said; “Today, we’re starting to introduce a fully redesigned Google+ that puts Communities and Collections front and centre. Now focused around interests, the new Google+ is much simpler.”

“And it’s more mobile-friendly – we’ve rebuilt it across web, Android and iOS so that you’ll have a fast and consistent experience whether you are on a big screen or small one.”

This comes just a few months after Google announced its ‘Alphabet’ plan to restructure the company. They suggested that by splitting the company up, they would be able to allocate different managers to each section which would help to improve each service.

Since it was first released in 2011, Google+ has struggled to attract users to its service. Their latest move to redesign Google+ is an obvious attempt to get more people using the site. With many people set in their ways when it comes to social media, they will need to do a lot more if they want to increase the Google+ audience.
