How To Hide Picasa Web Album Photos In Google+ Profile

Google has recently launched google+ which is their all new social networking initiative which resembles much more like facebook but its much more powerful in terms of functionality and data flow, all the updates you see on are real time and instant, you don’t need to refresh a page to the see the new comment or update it automatically fetches and display them.

Google+ has some main feature including Circles which are groups like facebook, in facebook you have wall updates and here you have similar looking stream updates, and one thing which I noticed is better in google+1 is all updates and replies are real time so you don’t have to refresh the page to see a reply on your post.
