Google gives Blogger a fresh new look
Thursday 01 September 2011
Since the launch of Google+ Beta, Google has slowly been rolling out new designs for a number of its popular products including Docs, Calendar and Gmail.The latest Google product to get a makeover is the company's blogging platform, Blogger.
“It’s been a few years since we made major updates to Blogger’s look and feel, and there’s a lot more to these changes than just shiny new graphics,” said Blogger Product Manager Chang Kim. “We’ve rewritten the entire editing and management experience from scratch so it’s faster and more efficient for you - and easier for us to update and improve over time.”
The redesign includes a streamlined blogging experience and a new Overview section where users can find traffic analytics, comment activity and follower statistics.
To test the new user interface look out for a pop-up announcement on your dashboard in the next few days, said Google, which will provide details about how to switch to the new look.
More information about the changes can be found on Google’s Blogger Help site.
