Changes to Google+: First impressions


Google+ have unveiled their first major overhaul since the service's inception last year.

Initial thoughts? They're going for the desktop approach, and I like the simplicity of it. Heading towards Windows territory perhaps? The layout certainly makes sense from a Chromebook perspective. Google want more of your life in their cloud, and this seems like a pretty intuitive way of doing it. Will people flock to use it though? I don't know - I still think the service is a bit too niche and male-skewed. It's yet to find it's key position within the marketplace, but I still think it's a great service, and I use it a lot.

I'm going to have a tinker with the changes, but just thought I'd give you a heads-up if you didn't already know.

For more on Google+ here's my initial review of the service.
