G+ Web Preview Update 12/18


G+ Web Preview Update 12/18
Today we’re continuing to improve our G+ preview on the Web based on your feedback and adding a new feature:

* +1 comments with one click using the action that appears when you hover over each comment
* View precisely when posts were made with the full timestamp on post pages
* Provide additional details when reporting abuse on posts. (I recognize this adds an additional click or two but the added information we collect helps us ensure G+ remains a great place to connect around shared interests.)

As before, we’re continuing to listen to your suggestions and ideas on how to improve G+ so please keep them coming using the Send Feedback menu item.
Thanks~

  1. Daniel Fitzgerald unfortunately not always true. Sometimes the technical dept is just too big and completely new system is the only way out. Other times complete rewrite gives you some advantage and that’s this case I guess.

  3. Well, I’m an Android app developer, and for me, total rewrites are always a problem. As it just causes new problems, and often doesn’t resolve existing ones, due to the same mistakes being made again, rather than actually researching and finding out why an issue occours in the first place.

  5. Daniel Fitzgerald makes sense. The old G+ version was most likely made using the Google Web Toolkit which is no longer maintained as far as I know. If they want to move fast and figure things along the way, rewrite was the only option.
    Now they’re actually trying to make something for G+ users, look at how well they react to feedback. The old version was just “hey people, here’s Google+, do what ever you want with it” and that was it. No additional support, development just some stupid features here and there.
