Google+ adds profile updates, learns from the competition


Your Google+ profile has just been given some convenient upgrades, in a bid to make it a little friendlier to anyone used to another social network. You're now able to post to your feed directly from your profile page, which now packs the same share box as the Google+ hub. You'll also be able to refresh the look of your profile with some new stock cover photos and galleries, while any new photos added will be automatically resized and (vertically) adjustable in their new home. Any new cover photos will also be stored in their own gallery at full size. The updates, a result of feedback from its users, have now rolled out across the whole network. Presumably, automated facial tagging is still on Google's shopping list.
