In entice to widen G+ popularity; Google is coming up with yet another feature which views counter which would show you the total number of views spawn on your profile, posts or photos. Being ingenious! I guess this update would shrug off the ghost-town labeling of Google+. Here, you will be seeing the sum of views generating since October 2012.
Though Google has not made any official announcement about the change, but, yes, it purely let somebody see how many times, his/her profile has been perceived by other people in network. This reconsideration is a part of boosting activities on this esteemed social platform just like Twitter which have already been experimented by launching number of views on tweets.
