Google Header Eats Los Angeles

Yes the Google+ Header just got bigger along with 41 other feature improvements to the leading search engine's social network. Recognizing that the most popular content on Facebook is pictures, Google+ boosted its ability to compete. Here is a quote from the Economic Times post:

"But the most compelling new attraction may be a new photo-management tool that promises to test how much control people want to cede to computers. It will also further blur the lines between a real moment in time and augmented reality."

Susan Kay Daniels's curator insight, May 19, 2013 11:13 AM

Just noticed the bigger header yesterday. Google is fast becoming my social network of choice. They just keep adding more and more features that I find absolutely delightful.
