Now, the new navigation bar of Google started to link to the profile pages. All you’ve to do is to click on your name at the top of a Google page. Then, you can quickly access your profile. Even if you don’t have a profile, you will get a link from Google to a page that lets you create a new account.
Moreover, Google Profiles have come out with a new tab for Picasa. This is one of a few changes. Unfortunately, it will not be enabled by default and it will not be available if you don’t link your Google Profile with Picasa Web.
“Your profile and scrapbook photos already make it easier for people to get to know you, but we want to do more to help you showcase your favorite pics. By choosing to show the PicasaWeb tab, you will enable visitors to see your public albums. Private albums will remain visible to only the people you’ve shared them with directly” says Google.
