Google Plus Product Manager Sara McKinley announced the changes on — where else — a post on her Google Plus page, and they include a local reviews tab, more flexibility in editing users’ information under the about tab, and larger cover photos. Here are more details from McKinley’s post:
A new tab for your local reviews: In addition to your photos, +1′s, and YouTube videos, there’s now a place for all your local reviews. Highlight your favorite restaurants, or hide the tab completely via settings — it’s completely up to you.
An easier way to edit your info: The “About” tab now consists of separate cards (like story, places, and links) — each with its own prominent edit link. As always: you can share specific fields with specific circles, or keep them just for you.
Bigger cover photos, with a better aspect ratio: Cover photos are much larger than before (up to 2,120 pixels by 1,192 px), and they display in 16×9 when fully expanded. This way, more images can be used as cover photos, and there’s more room for your selection to shine.
