Google Plus has tasted success even in the very first month of its launch and the craze among people for Google Plus grew so fast that it became difficult for Google to handle the traffic. And now it seems that Google Plus is all set with its new Social Network. The battle between Facebook and Google Plus is growing day by day and this has been expressed beautifully with pop art, an art which makes use of culture to portray something. And Jurgen Hobarth, one among the twenty five million users of Google Plus, has created humour filled pop arts to portray the success of Google Plus over Facebook. Have a look at them, Hope you will enjoy them too.
Google plus android app has got a facelift with Google’s latest update which has cleaned up the bugs and improved the notification system.
12 different updates have been done to enhance the user experience and in this version(1.0.5)_the biggest noticeable change is an improved notification system and an easier navigation system to a friends profile. One important change is that there is just one notification irrespective of the number of users adding you in their circle.
Google plus huddles has been given a facelift with a better auto complete feature and clickable links. Google has finally decided to use its You-tube video’s to explain the recent updates, which seems to be a good gamble.
