Google has added a new feature to its social network, Google+. If you log into Google+, you’ll probably notice the addition of a new column on the right side of the screen with the headline Trends. A feature that’s very familiar to Twitter users, Trends lets users find out what people are Tweeting about, but in this case – it’s what people are sharing on Google+ instead. Clicking on a topic in the Trends list will launch a search on the network for posts about it.
This new feature was quietly added on Thursday night, according to reports online, but it hasn’t rolled out to everybody yet (I don’t have it on my account). Some new features have been added as well including improvements to Google+ Search. We don’t have a timeline to when these features will reach everybody, but it looks like Twitter might have to worry about Google+ after all.
