Google has released an update to its website blog redesign process to reduce friction in the coming months.
The news comes after Facebook was hit by a huge backlash for its redesign of its “Twitter” blog and Twitter News Feed.
Google’s redesign of the Google Blog also saw a massive backlash over the fact that the blog didn’t use native Android app support.
A Google spokesperson told Ars that “the process is still under design and we’ll bring a variety of features in for final approval.”
Google also told Ars it’s working to streamline the process by adding a dedicated team to create “tweets and RSS feeds that are more accessible for users.”
The company’s revamped process could result in some tough decisions ahead for Google’s Google+ social media platform.
The Google+ redesign saw a number of major changes, including the removal of the ability to post “tags” that simply indicate whether a post belongs to someone or a brand.
Google also dropped the ability for users to post a direct link to a post from their own blog.
Now, Google+ only allows direct links to posts that already have a certain amount of comments.
