Google is unleashing a new design for its social network aimed at making the site simpler to use but also easier on the eyes.
One of the first changes to pop out is a new Navigation bar nestled
on the left. Replacing the old static toolbar at the top, the Navigation
bar includes the usual icons for Home, Profile, Photos, and more. But
this bar is customizable.
You can change the order of the various icons to drag your favorite
ones to the top. You can remove icons for features you don't use or add
other icons from a "More" group. And you can hover your mouse over an
icon to display a menu of quick actions.
