Google+ now displays Google Contacts data in friends’ profiles.

“Many of you, like me, use Google Contacts to manage your personal address book. If that’s the case, then starting today we’ll include this contact info on your friends’ Google+ profiles — for your eyes only, of course,” announced Product Manager Sean Purcell on Google+.

Thus, Gmail and Android users’ Google Contacts are now integrated with the social network. For example: If a coworker has a new number recently stored in Google Contacts, it will automatically sync with Google+ in the  “Details from Google Contacts” section. Purcell also provided a visual example of the new feature in the above image.

This is a small improvement, but it is certainly handy, especially since most smartphones are already capable of privately syncing contacts to various services and products.

    In Google Contacts (or Gmail), when I search, it separates My Contacts form Circles.

    I'm surprised it took them that long to do so…
