“Some of these were on nearly everyone’s wishlist … and some we hope will be welcome surprises,” Google said in a blog post.
Up first is the option to “pump up (or down) the volume” on the frequency with which you see certain peoples’ updates. Using a slider tool atop the stream for a particular Circle, you can opt to see more or less from a Circle so you don’t miss important updates. If people in your “Work” Circle tend to post constantly, possibly causing you to miss some posts from the “Family” Circle, you can opt to hear less from work folks and more from family.
Facebook has a similar option; click the drop-down arrow to the right of a certain update on your newsfeed and Facebook will allow you to select all updates, most updates, or only important updates from that person.
Next up for Google+, though, is more useful notifications. The social network has a red notifications button atop your page when you have new items to view, “but the notifications themselves have been a little cryptic, often requiring you to navigate to the content itself to understand what happened,” Google said.
As a result, Google has added “sneak previews” that show you what each notification includes, as well as updates about +1′s and how many shares your post might have received since you last signed on.
