Brief Bits: Google+ Now Allows Animated GIFs as Profile Pictures

google-plus-ios-iconGoogle+ now allows you to set an animated GIF as your profile picture, according to Engadget. I’m not sure how much of a positive effect this will have on the social network, as it could result in increased trolling, but that’s a completely different subject.

Google+ itself continues to grow as a social network, especially as Google continues to integrate it alongside its other existing services such as YouTube and the Play Store. The platform has enormous potential, already approaching 250 million active users.

If you are using the desktop version of our website, be sure to follow the official Google+ page for iFans by adding it to your circles using our sidebar widget. iFans will be increasing its presence on the platform in the ensuing months, so make sure to follow along so that you don’t miss out on our iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Android coverage.
