Google+ One-Ups Rivals With Zoomable Photos

It looks like Google+ is going to finally become the dominant social media site on the planet! How? Zoomable photos! big grin

Flickr, Facebook, and other photo-sharing sites offer a larger view of photos, but it's usually at least one click away from the smaller photo that shows by default. Google offers that ability, and last night went one step further by letting people use the mouse scroll wheel to dive further into a photo. Once zoomed in, clicking and dragging lets people pan around to explore the photo at the deeper zoom level.
