Google has added new features and improved the options on some of its existing features on its social networking site Google+.
Google Plus logo.
The improvements have come about following users requests, the company announced. Among the new features is "Volume Control", but the feature has nothing to do with sound. It is a bar that will turn up or down the amount of feed you may get from a circle. If you have a circle with people you don't really know that well or acquaintances, you may want this feed turned down low rather than seeing every post. A circle containing your close friends or family may warrant you keeping the volume bar up on full.
Google+ Photos have seen an upgrade too. A new "lightbox" has been added to allow improved navigation and photo tagging techniques.
Google+ Pages have updates too. Companies or brands using Pages feature can now delegate as many as 50 administrators for a Page. Those administrators or managers will now be kept updated of all the activity taking place within that Page. Google+ has attempted to win customers over from Facebook since its launch in June 2011.
Mashable reports the Google+ Bar has seen a small facelift too. They have redesigned the notifications which appear as red icons (on the right-hand side of the Bar). Now it's easier to see what’s happening on your Google+ profile along with all the recent shares you have received.
