Reddit /, The Wall Street Journal, Aug. 16, 2020, 2:14:24 amThe companies are joining together to boost results on social media websites, including Google and Facebook, and Google+ in the coming months.
The firms will work to “improve user experience across their networks,” said Matt Garza, vice president of corporate communications for Google.
Google has partnered with Facebook to help users find information on a variety of topics.
“We’re not the only one,” he said.
Google+ has about 70 million active users, according to the company.
Google, which owns search, has been trying to make the social network a better place to find news, photos and videos.
Earlier this year, it announced that it would be rolling out a new “mobile-first” strategy, which includes making social network posts more relevant on phones and tablets, rather than on desktop computers.
That effort will include better ways to show how a photo is presented on mobile devices and a revamped “mobile” layout for posts.
Google+ also will make its content searchable by location and location types, along with searchable video and audio.
“As a community we have been working hard to help people find content across their network,” said Rob Marcus, Google+ director of community.
“This partnership will help us do that.
This is a great opportunity for people to have more information on our network and more options to search it.”
Google+ currently has about 25 million members, according the company, and the company is planning to add another 25 million to the site in the next few months.
