There have been many complaints about how the latest redesign of G+ has sacrificed text for images (see: #waronwords ). Take a look at the below screen capture of something I saw in my stream just now. I'm not sure if it's new or not, but do you see how the last sentence is cut off, showing visually that there's more text below? It's actually a pretty good approach, I think.
Edit: It's also worth noting that this post showed up in my stream with many lines of text - not just the 2-3 that has been the case with the recent design changes.
posted a pretty clever rebuke to the current image-heavy design yesterday (https://plus.google.com/u/0/109139639454066616071/posts/ZLvJbxAwqBx), and in one of the comments noted "we are working on some improvements so stay tuned." He also cc'ed who appears to be working on this issue at Google and who commented: "Yup, we're on it. Stay tuned!"
So could what we're seeing below be part of the answer? Maybe this has always been there, and I'd just never noticed it before. Yes? No?

I am a huge fan of monsters, splatter and chaos on my artist side, while my designer side is a typography snob with an addiction to perfection.
