I'm in the UK. Returning home tonight I found myself logged out of Google. Annoying when that happens, right? Logging back in I quickly discovered a whole new Google+.
It feels very responsive but the panels fly around somewhat; especially when you start writing a new post.
A key new element seems to be YouTube. That's right, the integration between Google+ and YouTube is even closer now as the smart money had been placed on some time ago.
Reviews, for local, are equally integrated. It feels that Google will sort out EU and US' FTC agreements and work closely to push Local.
