Today, we’re announcing three new updates for Google+. [plus.google.com]

First, some new features. You can now have richer conversations by adding links and photos to your comments. We’re also offering Community owners and moderators more control over who posts what with approved posting. Finally, we're launching a new notifications center on the web where you can see and manage your recent activity on Google+. These features will be available across the web, Android and iOS in the coming weeks.


They'll also be pushing the new UI, which according to a lot of commenters, makes G+ less usable.

I'm hoping these updates will help revitalize Google+ but I can't help feeling that no matter what Google does to this platform, people have made up their minds and involvement probably won't change much.

The problem with morphing it from one to another does not help, imho.

People invest time and effort, then it goes away, as it was known. It doesn't give people confidence to invest that time again, and again.

I agree. I'm pretty tired of filling out the same forms to create profiles only to see them vanish when the platform updates. That just happened with Paypal Local Businesses.

In fact, that was the main reason I changed browser settings to allow form data to be saved, something I feel is not a wise thing to do from a security perspective but I just got tired of typing :)
