I sat down to dinner tonight with a lovely group of very talented designers from all corners of the tech world -- Facebook, Instagram, etc -- and picked their brain a bit about the new Google+ experience (along with other equally nerdy things like favorite Internet browsers and why, etc etc).
Their general response to the new Google+ design was: "We like the old profile better."
I argued that the new UI might simply take a while to get used to (as all brand new experiences do), and everyone sort of nodded their head in agreement. But meh. Thought it might be interesting to share.
Do you agree? Do you like the old Google+ better, or are you digging the new design?
