Google plus new icon

    I see Google Plus has changed its +1 icon to a new red one.

    What do you think about the new compared to old +1 icon.

    I don't like and so far most people don't like it.

    Harder to read, bad color combination just nothing to really like about it. :confused:

    For some reason they're shifting to a red theme. I think its a way to compete with the "while and blue" theme of Facebook with a "red & while" theme.
    The problem is, its not as soothing to the eye as the "white and blue"

    I noticed they changed it, I like the current red icon but the last one was also not bad. I think they will be introduce lot of icons in different colors with excellent designs.

    I liked the old one better, it is harder to tell what the icon is now :(,
    Google make a undo button :D or opt to let people use the old logo!

    I notice this color change. It is heavily contrasted with the blue, which is unappealing to the eyes as someone has mentioned above. However, red is extremely catching to the eye psychologically. They must have some motive for doing this!

    I agree but the red they used is very dull. Red is the brightest color in the light spectrum (thats why you dont buy a red sports car too much attention). The red they used is not very bright or vibrant :(.

    True google usually does what they want to do despite the will of everyone else and then they usually succeed with it... :p

    You might be onto something... red for anything on google domain, blue for anything regarding.. asia.. green on anything regarding (insert category here), and so on.... Just a theory...
