Google+ gets 'EQ' to dial down frequent posters, more

Google Plus tweaks stream, notifications, photos

Google started off the week with some heavily requested updates to Google+. The main stream now has controls that let users apply an "EQ" to slow down how many posts they see from a given person in their stream. The move, suggested by Robert Scoble and other heavy users, would help prevent constant updates from themselves and others like them obscuring updates from family or others who post less often but might be more personally valuable.

Notifications have been given their own important makeover. They now include previews of shared posts, +1 votes, and the profile photos of those who added you to circles.

The photo layout is now significantly improved, with better navigation, easier to read comments, and a new interface for tagging people in a given shot. Corporate Google+ pages can now at last have multiple designated admins, as many as 50, and let them keep track of activity from their own Google+ profiles through notifications. Metrics let companies see the total number of +1 and circle additions to gauge the success of the page.
