  • What is the issue?Problem Statement: Increase the amount of time that users are actively using Google+ January 2012 average view time 3.3 mins. 7.5 Hrs. Where is the added Benefit?
  • Why not spending time on G+?• Rebuild Social Network CIRCLES• No easy integration • Non-intuitive • Asymmetric sharing • Reposting Home screen post size Mobile App • No Hangout feature • No tablet App
  • How did we find these issues?Interviews & Observations“I would change the way the circles interface works. It is agreat concept in theory but is so confusing to navigate. WhenI click to go to the circles section, it shows 124 people in mycircles yet I didn’t add the strong majority of them. Or maybeI did unintentionally?? Which would be a sign of a terribleuser interface!” Honestly, Id want it connected to twitter and Facebook in some way. The idea that Id have to rebuild the networks I have on those sites in order to get the most out of Google+ is a bit tiring.
