So after the controversial Facebook Cover Photo and Timeline, Google +, Google's Social networking site or platform just recently rolled out their new offering to netizens most especially on its interface, navigation and look, not to mention its Cover Photo situated in the uppermost part of your profile (sounds familiar, huh?). In this update, Google Plus aims to allow users to create a more customized experience on the site.

First thing I notice is the dynamic ribbon of applications on the leftmost part of the page and this includes:
- You can drag apps up or down to create the order you want
- You can hover over certain apps to reveal a set of quick actions
- You can show or hide apps by moving them in and out of “More”
“Taken together, these powers make it easier to access your favorites, and to adjust your preferences over time,” Google senior vice president Vic Gundotra wrote on Google’s Official Blog. “We’ve also built the ribbon with the future in mind, giving us an obvious (and clutter-free) space for The Next Big Feature, and The Feature After That. So stay tuned.”
"By focusing on you, the people you care about, and the stuff you’re into, we’re going to continue upgrading all the features you already know and love—from Search and Maps to Gmail and YouTube. With today’s foundational changes we can move even faster—toward a simpler, more beautiful Google." ended Vic Gundotra
What do you think of this latest rollout? Can Google Plus compete with Facebook by then?
