Google+ big profile pictures

The good folks at Google + have made some changes to how your profile will appear on your Google + page. You can now add local reviews, bigging up your favourite restaurants or local shops.
You can also edit the info in your 'About' tab separately.

But the BIGGEST change of all is the photo size you can now use a cover photo.
'Cover photos are much larger than before (up to 2120px by 1192px), and they display in 16x9 when fully expanded.' said Google's Sarah Mckinley, in her post about the changes.

Reactions so far have been positive, with users loving the big photos especially. What it highlights to us here in the world of small business marketing is the continuing importance of Google + for online strategy, and the need to set up and maintain a presence within the right circles and hangouts.
