Google+ Update

Yesterday brought a handful of updates from Google, notably their Google+ Android application.  While we don’t tend to pay too much attention to social networking apps, that may be changing as we start to look at these items as a business tool.  While there isn’t anything to terribly fancy with the update, the following items were added:

  • Support for adding a link when creating a post
  • New notification tray (in app)
  • Additional Community moderation features

Also worth noting…Google+ is now the world’s second largest social network, topping Twitter and YouTube this week.  While Facebook shouldn’t be shaking in their boots just yet, this is very impressive for a social tool barely a year and a half old.  If you don’t Google+ installed, head over to the Play Store and pick it up.
