Google+ Adds New Website Buttons & Badges On 2nd Birthday
Google+ turns two years old today and is marking the occasion with new buttons and badges for websites, along with a few tweaks to its photo features. There’s also a special birthday logo that’s showing up only on plus.google.com (which you can see at right).
As far as the new stuff goes, there’s a new “Follow” button for individual Google+ users, as well as a new badge for Community managers. Both come in different sizes and can be customized. Here’s what they look like:
In addition to those new badges, Google has also updated the existing badges for Pages and Profiles with new customization options.
The existing badges will continue to work as-is for 90 days, and Google says it’ll automatically upgrade those badges to the new style after that.
Photo Updates, Too
In a separate post, Google has also updated some of its photo management features in Google+.
- Large photo sets can now be uploaded faster
- In photo albums, easier downloading after selecting individual photos
- New option to move photos from one album to another
These features are available now in any Google+ photo albums you may have uploaded/created.
