After 9 months of updates Google+ had been reincarnated

+Luke Wroblewski​ takes a look back at the changes and updates since the launch of the new Google+. It's come a long way in 9 months.

And now, as +Michael Brown​ put it, Google+ has been reincarnated. It's a new and different Google+, and still in its infancy.

I recommend also read +Yonatan Zunger​'s share of the announcement that the new Google+ interface is now the default:

Yes, the new Google+ is not the same as the old Google+, but I think it's good.

And do send feedback to Google+ directly. They are listening!

The G+ platform has been through a lot of changes during the course of its change reincarnation. From an average user standpoint, I can understand the frustration of having to start from the beginning. Having your once beloved social network stripped from all its bells and whistles that heavily completed against its competitors.

However, the beautiful thing about this platform is that, it's parent platform (+Google) invests a lot of time and energy into it to make it faster and better for the years to come. Communicating directly with active users to make it better for the active users.

I'm still on the old G+ but I will continue to use it. I don't like the comments showing up one at a time on the new G+. On the new G+ the first thing I do is to drop down all the comments on a post.

It's been a lot. It's a lot. Honestly it's nice to see all that work on Google+.

I'm kinda satisfied with the new Google+ already, already much more than with the older one. I'm still worried about the number of users, how to bring people we know to it, the content and the kind of content we can find.

In my opinion, a social network is an ecosystem and in general, an ecosystem, to last, needs to be diverse. Google+ is not diverse enough. It needs more kind of content, especially more relaxed, fun content. And then more private content should take place in my opinion. Well, it's impossible to quantify private content since well, it is private, but I'm worried about how much private interactions takes place here.

Also, I wonder if few features, namely Hangouts integration, and seeing new comments/posts edits appear in realtime, will ever appear here. I also find a bit sad the lack of integration in many products I was used to. But that's really nice to see this investment.
