Google Introduces Google+ Communities And Snapseed, Rapid Growth Continues

Share And Comment

Today Google announced that Google+ is still rapidly growing, and actually “is the fastest-growing network thingy ever.” To go along with that, Google has reported some pretty impressive numbers – “More than 500 million people have upgraded, 235 million are active across Google (+1’ing apps in Google Play, hanging out in Gmail, connecting with friends in Search…), and 135 million are active in just the stream.”

If that wasn’t enough for you, Google also took the time to announce Google+ Communities and Snapseed. Simply stated, “With Google+ Communities there’s now a gathering place for your passions, including:

  • Public or private membership to support all kinds of groups—from topics and interests to local neighborhoods to regular poker nights
  • Discussion categories to find the conversations you care about most
  • The option to start hangouts and plan events with community members
  • The ability to share with your community from any +1 button across the web

With Snapseed, Android and iOS users will have another application for editing photos, and it’s available today for free. Features include:

  • Basic adjustments like tune, straighten and crop
  • Creative filters like drama, black & white, and vintage that you can apply individually or in combination
  • Control Point technology to selectively enhance your photo—to brighten just a face, for instance, or deepen just the sky
  • The ability to share your creations via Google+ and other services
