They say that Google+ users share billions (yes, with a b) of items everyday and sometimes we just want to find something cool, whether it be a picture or breaking news. That’s why they released – appropriately called – What’s Hot.
Here’s a video with one of Google’s engineers explaining the What’s Hot Google+ feature, where to find it and how to use it.
Google+ also announced two more new features. Google+ Ripples and Google+ Creative Kit. Here’s a brief description of each with the corresponding video.
There’s something deeply satisfying about sharing on Google+, then watching the activity unfold. Comments pour in, notifications light up, friends share with friends (who share with their friends), and in no time at all there’s an entire community around your post. We want to help people re-live those conversations—both to rekindle that initial excitement, and to learn how posts flow across the network. That’s why we’re launching Google+ Ripples: a visualization tool for public shares and comments.
Google+ Creative Kit
Nothing tells a story like the perfect picture, so it’s only natural to want to make yours really, really, really, ridiculously good-looking. Unfortunately, photo editing is too often a chore, requiring specialized software and lots of patience. We want to help everyone put their best photo forward, so today we’re introducing the Google+ Creative Kit, a fast and friendly way to make powerful edits to your photos.
So, what do you think? Does Google+ continue to release great and useful features that make you want to keep sharing and using their social network?
