Users now realizing Facebook’s latest changes show they are wary of their competitor Google Plus

Facebook has recently made some pretty decent tweaks into their existing interface. All of them aims at the popular features which had been giving an edge to their closest rival Google Plus. These changes come at a time when people are in two-minds which platform to use. Facebook is trying it’s level best to provide it’s users with best in-class experience.

Some of the most noticeable changes are the privacy controls for each status update (a 99% copy of Google Plus), privacy settings for each of the account information that an user can have in his or her profile (100% inspired by Google Plus) and a nice tweak to the apparently horrible theater mode photo viewer. In the photo viewer, the previous and next arrow have been aesthetically placed with the ‘Like’ and ‘Comment’ buttons finding a place a notch inside the photo thus saving some vital space below the pic.

It is obvious that Facebook users will be finding the changes very helpful and might just keep them a few days more from shifting to Google Plus. It will be a treat to watch what happens. Do you use Facebook or Google Plus more often? Are you planning to move to the other soon?
