Google+ has just had a huge redesign. The social network has been entirely refocused on interests, and in the process dropped several of its most used features.
The new Google+ is much simpler. You’ll see this clearly in the new navigation centered around Collections and Communities. With Collections and Communities, discovering amazing things is simple: just follow or join whatever happens to pique your interests.
Google+’s new focus is on Collections and Communities: Collections allow you to immerse yourself in a specific subject — home brewing, sous-vide cooking, or Guatemalan entomology, for example; Communities allows you to meet up with like-minded users.
The new Google+ also makes it easier to post, search, connect, and keep up with great content in a fully redesigned home stream.
You can preview the new Google+ on the web today by signing in and clicking “Let’s go” when you see the prompt. (And since not every feature of Google+ has made its way into this new design, for now, you can toggle back to the classic Google+ with one click in the bottom left-hand corner.)
