Google announced Google Play services v3.0 this morning, which includes new Google+ sign-in as an option similar to what you see in current apps with Facebook and Twitter.

Global Web Index released a report that monitored all the big social sites and reported that G+ has grown itself into the second most used social network in the world. (more…)
Google pushed another update to the Google+ application for Android, but don’t expect anything too new. For now, it’s just some bug fixings and several stability improvements.
