Google Removes Classic Google+ Layout This Month And Adds New Features
Google announced this week that it will be removing the Google+ classic layout. In 2015, Google's native social network service was revamped when Communities and Collections went live. Users were still able to use the classic mode if they wanted to. However, when January 24 finally rolls in, users won't be able to go back using the "Back to classic Google+" option found at the bottom left corner.
If you try to click the link to go back to Classic Mode, there will be pop-up generating the message, "Heads up! Classic Google+ is going away soon, but you'll still find all of your stuff on the shiny new Google+." If users enter using the old Google+, the pop-up will say, "The version you're using will be replaced soon. Click here to switch to the new Google+." A banner bearing a similar message will be displayed at the top of the feed.
According to a Google blog post by Google+ product manager, Danielle Beckley, a new Google+ will be introduced thanks to a hefty amount of feedback. Three new highly requested updates are coming over to Google+ in the next couple of weeks.
The first mentioned update is the hiding of low-quality comments so that users "can focus on comments that matter most". Users still have the option to view all comments available on a certain post if they tap "View more comments." As of now, we don't know what will constitute a low-quality comment.
The second update is an adjusted Google+ to accommodate more post and less white space so users can see more things that they are more interested in. There will also be an added zoom function to photos as big and beautiful photos are shared on Google+ all the time.
The last update is about bringing Events over to Google+. On January 24, 2017, users can create and join events on the Google+ web. Events are stressed to not be available for G Suite.
