Google+ Badges Get More Options

Google is rolling out some more customization options for Google+ badges.

Google Software Engineer Lucy Hadden just announced the news on Google+ and on the official Google+ blog.


When we launched Google+ pages in November, we also released Google+ badgesto promote your Google+ presence right on your site. Starting today in developer preview (and soon available to all your users), we're adding more options for integrating the Google+ badge into your website. You can configure a badge with a width that fits your site design and choose a version that works better on darker sites. You'll also see that Google+ badges now include the unified +1 and circle count that we added to Pages last month. 



Google Plus Refreshes the Suggested User List.

We've just noticed that the Google+ Suggested User list found at https://plus.google.com/getstarted/follow has been refreshed.

In fact it has a distinct regional flavor to it now, as we're seeing UK related suggestions like Top Gear and O2 UK. It's also much more about Brand Pages.



We've reached out to Google for confirmation and we''ll update this as we hear anything.
