Google+ gets a makeover, but no one cares

Or do you?

Google+ claims that they're 170 million strong but let's face it, there's barely any of our friends who admit to using the service. Sure, they've signed up when the roll-out began, but the novelty quickly wore off and little by little, Plus was minus regular visitors. A couple weeks back we took a poll about how many of you are actually on Google+ and less than 10% said they spent over two hours on it in a month while a 62% said they only spend a few minutes on it in an entire month. It's pretty big numbers from what Facebook has, where a 2011 study by Experian put the heaviest users from 8 countries at an average of 24 minutes on the site per session. We think it's safe to say that Google+ has a long way to go, but anyway here's a screenshot of the new interface.

Google Plus' new look

They've done away with the linear controls overhead and opted to put an expandable menu on the left instead. Google has also added a 'Trending' list, and unfortunately for this author, Jennifer Lopez is on the top spot. We have to hand it to the Big G though, they've finally put customization as a priority, and it might look like Facebook's sigh-heaving, frustration-inducing Timeline, but we kind of like it. For a better understanding of what's new, check out the video below. We leave you with a warning: the video's soundtrack by YouTube celebrity Kina Grannis might get you to watch the video more than once, but we doubt it'll make you an active user on Google+.
