Google+ LogoGoogle has overhauled the design of Google+ with a fresh new redesign that they introduced yesterday.

The new design includes:

  • Side bar that can be customized
  • Full bleed photos are now in the timeline
  • The discussion stream is now in the format of conversation "cards" enabling you to see a conversation better
  • Each of these cards has an "activity drawer" to show what is going on with the conversation
  • Hangouts has a landing page with more details

Pretty much everyone I know already has been upgraded to the new design. Here is a picture from Google:

What I see is different in that it looks more like this:

Yea, the biggest complaint or discussion point is all that white space between the conversation stream and the right side bar.

There are tons of stories on it, see those stories at Techmeme.

I like the new layout, especially since I can control the side bar. I agree about the white space though. It looks like they forgot to put something there.

Probably gauging user reaction just before they put adwords on that bish. :)

I'm really surprised the released it like this, with all the extra white space. They should have made it easier to embed their other services like Google Reader, Gmail, or Calendar to fill in the space.
