Photos and Streams... new directions for Google plus?There have been some official announcements of change, but not much detail yet as to how this will affect what we now know of Google Plus...Apparently Hangouts will also be a stand-alone product
(perhaps it already is since we have a mobile app named "Hangouts") but more on that as information trickles out to us.
I share with you this comment that +Bradley Horowitz
made in some of his public replies to people concerned re. the planned changes:The improvements referenced aren't a step backward - they're a step forward! This is about making sure these products reach more users - and are simple, elegant and delightful to use. I look forward to sharing them with you, and invite you to suspend any concerns you have until you've had a chance to use them yourselves.
Note how nobody is stating that "Streams" (a new name for what we call G+ now?) will no longer contain the things that are also going to stand on their own, so the use of photos and hangouts will likely stay part of Google plus, but may also have their own stand alone functions.
Please join me in welcoming +Bradley Horowitz
to his new more publicly facing role... http://goo.gl/ei1kfh
