[URL="http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/12/google-few-big-improvements-before-new.html"]Google's blog[/URL] posted that there will be a few more improvements to Google + before the year's end.

1. [B]Pump up (or down) the volume!
Sometimes important posts you wouldn’t want to miss from close friends or family can get lost amongst posts from others who post dozens of times a day. We’re adding fine-grained controls that will enable you to “graphic-equalize” and fine-tune your stream. When viewing the stream for a particular circle, you’ll now see a slider at the top that lets you adjust how posts from that circle should be blended into the main stream.

2. [/B][B]More useful and attractive notifications
One of the most useful and valuable features of the [URL="http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/11/next-stage-in-our-redesign.html"]redesigned Google bar[/URL] is the red notifications indicator. ([URL="https://www.google.com/#hl=en&cp=32&gs_id=15&xhr=t&q=rudolph+the+red+nosed+reindeer+lyrics"]You could even say it glows![/URL]) We now have easy-to-read “sneak previews” that immediately present what’s new and why you might care.

3. [/B][B]Improvements to Google+ Pages
[URL="http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/11/google-pages-connect-with-all-things.html"]Google+ Pages[/URL] have already provided brands and businesses a new means of connecting to and deeply engaging with consumers. In the weeks since launching pages, we’ve been listening to your feedback and we’re pleased to make some of the most oft-requested features available.
[LIST][*]You can now delegate up to 50 named managers as administrators for a page.[*]A new notification flow will ensure that these managers stay in the loop on all the activity that takes place on a page, giving managers the ability to stay involved in page conversations.[*]We’ll now show an aggregated count of users that have engaged with your page, either by +1’ing it or by adding it to a circle. This way, both you and your page’s visitors can get an at-a-glance summary of who is interacting with your page.[/LIST]4. [/B][B]A more beautiful and usable photos experience
Finally, we’re making a bevy of improvements to the Google+ Photos experience, just in time for the holiday photo-sharing season. Viewing a photo in Lightbox has been completely redesigned with improved navigation, enhanced comment legibility and better overall utility.
