Using Google+? Add Mashable to your circles. You’ll get the latest about new Google+ features and tips and tricks for using the platform as well as top social media and technology news.
One of the new features is called the “Volume Control,” but it doesn’t have anything to do with sound volume. Instead, it is a slider that lets you fine-tune your streams and decide whether you want to see more or less items from a particular circle in your main stream.
Google+ Photos have been upgraded with a new lightbox that boasts improved navigation and photo-tagging. The new lightbox also puts more emphasis on the actual photos, with the navigation elements mostly being tucked out of the way.
Google+ Pages have been updated with a couple of new features. Brands using Pages can now delegate up to 50 named managers as administrators for a Page.
Furthermore, these managers will now be included in all the activity that takes place on a Page, making it easier for them to follow what’s going on. Check out a short introduction to these and other improvements to Pages in the video below.
Finally, Google has redesigned the notifications in its Google Bar, which appear as red icons on the right side of the Bar. Click on the little red box, and you’ll see snippets that make it easy to see what’s happening on your Google+ profile, including all the +1s and shares you’ve recently received.
