Google knocks Facebook down a peg with Google+ overhaul

Tech Hive - Google has struggled to win over Facebook users—and really, nearly everyone—with its social network, Google+. A completely redesigned Google+ launched on Wednesday at Google I/O with features that could make Google+ a more fierce Facebook competitor. (Facebook, Google Plus, Web)

I really hate it, i am an avid Google+ user and really like the things just as they were.

I'm inclined to agree. I still don't get why they decided to cut they're reader short either.

What is it with Google not being able to create a half-decent interface with their properties? They re-ruin Youtube every couple of months and pull stuff like this.

Heck, interface seems to be completely lost of most companies these days. It's insane.

I just checked the new layout and I hate it too. It was fine the way it was. I hope they dont start to make stupid changes like facebook does.

Is it really so bad or is it just people not liking change? I never use it on the web, so I don't know the difference. I just use it on my phone or tablet.

I have to admit, I'm impressed with the new layout. I've gotten to use it for a few days now and it's pretty fluid. I *might* actually start using it more often now.

I actually like this new layout. Loads much faster than the previous build (which was a huge reason why I never liked using G+). Currently on the single column layout, so not a huge issue.
