With the holidays just around the corner, Google is rolling out some new features for its Google+ social network.
Bradley Horowitz, the vice president of Google+, said that the new features they are releasing includes a tool called the noise filter, which can fine tune a user’s stream to control which posts can be seen.
“We’re adding fine-grained controls that will enable you to ‘graphic-equalize’ and fine-tune your stream,” said Horowitz in a blog post. “When viewing the stream for a particular circle, you’ll now see a slider at the top that lets you adjust how posts from that circle should be blended into the main stream. That way you’ll never miss a post from that special someone, and you can tweak these settings to form your own ‘perfect stream’.”
Google has also improved the Google+ Photo app. The company added an option that lets users expand photos to fit their entire screens, easier to read comments and a better tagging process. The company also added a new bird’s eye view that enables users to flip between their favorite photos.
Horowitz said that Google+ pages, which enable businesses and brands to engage with and connect to users, will now allow up to 50 administrators per page. He said that a new notification flow will “ensure that these managers stay in the loop on all the activity that takes place on a page, giving managers the ability to stay involved in page conversations.”
These new features will be seen in a couple of days and Google hopes that its users will find it more useful starting this holiday season and in the future.
