Complete surprise, Google has now rolled out a redesign of user profiles in its social network Google Plus. From now on the same anticipates spent months fine-tuning of design stylists created Header image suddenly feels totally at grits – at least think that many, if they click on your own profile. On Google+, So immediately the great spatial figures has broken…
The Google+ Redesign requires larger wallpaper on profiles and pages.
May be the huge header image now at 1920 x 1080 pixels. The maximum resolution is 2120 x 1192 pixels well. One should note that the position of the elements has shifted somewhat. Scales the image dynamically depending on the browser resolution in the present width (the mobile-view, I have not checked). In the lower area, where the information can be integrated to sit, the image is darkened somewhat fluent. I have on my profile page just added a photography image.
For me as a friend Pictures of course it is nice, but I suspect that there will be many critics who find the image size is too large. Said: it does not have to make as big. And you can also retain the existing design.
In designing the header images, one should note that it also appears in the “snippet view” – whenever someone rolls over your own name. This view is probably more important than the profile page itself.
New features and new design are not the only measure to establish stronger Google+: Just yesterday, Google has begun to divert calls to Picasa Web Albums to the corresponding photo pages on Google+. The search engine giant has long pursued the goal interlink all its services more effectively.
How do you like the new design?
