Google adds 'What's new in Google+' page to its help center

What's new in Google+ page

Google has launched a "What's new in Google+" page in its online help center for the fledgling social network.

The page will offer visitors one central place where they can find out what Google is working on and has recently added to Google+ as the tech giant looks to maintain and grow its user base.

The updates on new and coming features are short -- generally shorter than what most Google employees write about new items in their Google+ profiles, and shorter than what can be found on most of Google's company blogs -- and usually include a video of a Google employee who explains what's new.

The posts on the page, so far, have all included a link back to a Google employee's Google+ post on the new feature, which usually adds more detail.

Here's a video from Natalie Villalobos, a community manager on the Google+ team, posted Thursday, explaining the formation of the What's new in Google+ page, and how to get to it.

And here's another video, this time from Timothy Jordan, describing a recent update that is promising to make Google's +1 button faster -- posted both on the What's new in Google+ page and his personal profile page.
