Google+ Adds Games to Improve User Experience

Google+ has grown at monstrous rates this past month, but new users have also started to finally drop off; leaving Google+ with substantially fewer users than Facebook. In an effort to enhance the user experience Google+ added games to their interface.

Some of the games they have added are popular games of which many are also available in the Google Chrome app store as well. One of the highest profile and most recognized names is Angry Birds. Some of the other games now available to play online at Google+ are:

  • City of Wonder which looks like Facebook’s Gardens of Time (I love this game
    and I never play games.)
  • Angry Birds
  • Monster World
  • Dragons of Atlantis
  • Sudoku Puzzles
  • Zynga Poker
  • Zombie Lane
  • Wild Ones
  • Flood-It
  • Dragon Age Legends
  • Bubble Island
  • Crime City
  • Edgeworld
  • Collapse! Blast
  • Bejewelled Blitz Beta
  • Diamond Dash

In this online world where stickiness (how long visitors stay and interact) really matters to your member growth, online buzz, and ad selling opportunities, adding games is a very smart idea at this point.
