It seems all the little endeavors have been carrying out over the past few years are slowly coming together as can be seen with the news that Google+ profiles will include address book information from Google Contacts. The team behind Google Contacts announced last night that should you have any information stored on your Google Contacts, it will be displayed for your friends at your Google+ profile.
This update does come in as pretty useful since users will not have to either remove or add any information and the visitors will be able to see your contact information at your profile after they find the newly added “Details from Google Contacts” section. According to the report from our friends over at TheNextWeb, there are no privacy concerns as the feature will only show up for the viewer which is a more secure way to handle contact information than what Facebook is doing which is giving them the option of displaying their contact number or not. Let us know whether you think this add-on is a ‘Plus’ or a ‘Minus’ for Google with a comment below.
