What’s interesting, though, is that the new features go deeper than just showing trends. If you dig around a bit further, you’ll also see that you can now filter your search results to show you what everyone is saying, just your circles, or what you’ve said about a subject.
When it comes down to a matter of being useful, both of these are huge steps from the Google+ team. It’s interesting to note, however, that some commenters on Lusk’s post are saying that this is the death of Twitter, at least for their own use. But it’s also notable that more than a few people are asking for Google+ to add the Trends results to the main page, which would lead us to believe that people are really starting to look for more topics with which to interact on the service.
Want to meet up with us on Google+? We’d love that.
