Google+ trends: iTunes 11 due to launch on Thursday?

(AFP Relaxnews) -- On Thursday, November 29, Google+ users are buzzing about the launch of Apple's iTunes 11 and sharing long exposure images.

The latest version of iTunes is expected to launch later today, though the release of the software was initially expected in October and has been subject to numerous delays. However in a recent Wall Street Journal profile of Apple's senior vice president of internet software and services Eddie Cue it was reported that the latest version of iTunes could be "expected as soon as Thursday."

The new iTunes is expected to feature a new library view, an expandable music view that enables users to see the full track listing of an individual album while continuing to browse their music collection and a "mini player" that lets user search for music and skip tracks without having to open their full iTunes library.

Google users are also using Thursday as an excuse to share long exposure images they have taken using the hashtag "#LongexposureThursday."

Google's new closed beta augmented reality mobile game Ingress also continues to trend. This time discussion of the game focuses on which Google+ users have or haven't gotten an invite. Those who want to take part in Google's worldwide game before it is out of closed beta can apply for an invitation at ingress.com.
