Okay, seriously. I just snapped a screen of our Google+ profile for that article I wrote and Google is now boosting the size of their Cover Photos considerably. I understand the need to iterate on a social network, especially one that’s so far behind the titan of the industry, but c’mon.
On top of the adoption of a much larger masthead, you can see Google+ has also switched its avatars to a circular crop befitting of their “circles” social metaphor. Also, it looks a lot like what Path does. I’m sure Google had this in mind on a version planner weeks or months ago, but you can’t help but feel they’re getting a little defensive ahead of Facebook’s huge News Feed revamp unveiling tomorrow, which we’ll keeping an eye on for you. Did you log in to your Google+ profile today, yet?
