new_googe_plusGoogle might have had the best intentions when they created Google+. We suppose it was easy to see why they thought Google+ could rival the likes of Facebook or Twitter. After all if you already had a Google account, you could make a Google+ account very easily without any fuss, but safe to say that Google+ is nowhere near the level of Facebook.

However perhaps in a bid to make Google+ a bit more attractive to users, Google has begun rolling out a new design to its social network. This is more than just a redesign on the surface, it is also a redesign of sorts on how Google wants its users to use its social network and this is by prioritizing Communities and Collections.

According to Google, “Today, we’re starting to introduce a fully redesigned Google+ that puts Communities and Collections front and center. Now focused around interests, the new Google+ is much simpler. And it’s more mobile-friendly—we’ve rebuilt it across web, Android and iOS so that you’ll have a fast and consistent experience whether you are on a big screen or small one.”

Now if you’ve logged into Google+ and you don’t see that it looks any different, it’s because this is something you will have to opt-in on. To do so, all you’d have to do is sign into your Google+ account and click “Let’s go” at the prompt and you’re good to go. More detailed instructions and how to switch back to the old look can be found here.
