What Is Google Ripples?

By Mario Aguilar

Google released a bunch of new Google+ features yesterday, including “What’s Hot” and Instagram-ish photo filters—those weren’t big surprises. But Google Ripples? We didn’t see that one coming. It’s weird, it’s interesting… but what exactly is it?

Google Ripples is a new graphical component to Google+…

When you click the menu arrow in the upper right hand corner of a Google+ post, you’re now given the option to “View Ripples.” Ripples is a visualization that charts the chain reaction that occurs when content is shared on Google+. It follows the trajectory of a public post as it is shared from person to person—literally how the post ripples outwards for the user who shared it.
