We’re impressed with Google+ so far, and given how Facebook keeps playing defence, it seems that Page and company are finally making strong decisions on social.Any hiccups in Google+ are easily excused while it’s in beta, stretching its legs and getting the kinks ironed out. And the updates are already on their way.
Vic Gundotra, Google’s senior vice president of social, posted on his Google+ account to say that there’s lots of criticism surrounding Google+ but that users could expect to see changes to address any concerns.
We’re impressed. It’s hard to imagine Facebook moving that quickly to address user concerns. We look forward to new updates, but in the meantime, here are some popular wish list features taken from the comments on Gundotra’s post.
A new Google-branded Dropbox functionality could go very far if it were integrated into Google+. As for now, you need to share files with help from a third party.
This is likely a small bug in the beta that will soon be fixed, but there are reports of blocking only working occasionally inside of Google+.
