Google is making it easier for you to discover what your friends like on Google+.
Starting Tuesday the company is going to start highlighting posts that have been +1’d by people in your circles on your stream, as well as highlighting some of your own well-received posts to your friends in their mainstream on Google+.
The feature is somewhat similar to the way that posts are currently highlighted on Facebook, in that posts on Google+ will now show who from your circles +1’d the post directly above the actual content.
Content might not be items that would have otherwise shown up in your main feed. For instance, a friend of a friend’s post might show up in your main feed now because several mutual friends in your circles +1’d the post.
Content will only appear for people who you’ve given permission, however. So, a post you make visible to only people in your circles will still only show up for those individuals, while one you make available publicly might now also be shared to strangers as well.
If you’d rather keep your +1’s private on Google+ you can customize who, if anyone, can see your +1’s highlighted in their stream from the Settings page within Google+.
What do you think of the new feature? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
