Google+ updates profile and page layouts

Google has just pushed out a handful of nice improvements to Google+:

Edit your info

An easier way to edit your info. The ‘About’ tab now consists of separate cards (like Story, Places, and Links) — each with its own prominent edit link.  It used to be kind of confusing to edit various areas, and you can still choose to share specific fields with specific circles, or keep them just for you.


Much larger cover photos

Cover photos can now be enormous, allowing photos of up to 2120 x 1192.  While this eats up more real estate on your page, it allows for a more friendly aspect ratio of 16×9, so you can use more of your “normal” photos as your cover image rather than needing to find one that is very wide.  In addition, these photos don’t have a 20% rule like Facebook, so feel free to put text in them if you think it’d be appropriate for your users.


Local Reviews tab

For local businesses, in addition to your photos, +1’s and YouTube videos, there’s now a place for all your Local reviews. Highlight your favorite restaurants, or hide the tab completely via settings — it’s completely up to you.

What do you think of these changes?
