Google™+ History to import your past web records

Google, the search engine giant, is working on a state-of-the-art API for its 11-month-old Google+ platform.

Dubbed as Google+ History, the latest API will include support for third-party app platforms. That means, it will enable the users to add past updates, events, status updates, pictures, and check-ins onto your Google+ profile from a range of mobile and social networking platforms like Twitter and Foursquare. This data from the past would then be imported and displayed in attractive tiles called ‘moments’.

Google’s Ken Norton explained in his fanfare-less announcement, “The idea behind Google+ history is that you do a lot of things on the web, but you might only want to share some of them. Right now Facebook’s Open Graph API often catches users by surprise. Even though they’ve authorized auto-sharing, they might not realize the article they read or video they watched is being broadcasted to friends”.

With some lines of code, your app can save a visited restaurant or a song listened by you alone on your Google+ History. And from there you can share it with your friends and family on your Google+ profile.

This new API is primarily a convenient way to enhance your Google+ profile with your past content and give it a Facebook Timeline-like look.
