Google Profiles get a professional, slightly Facebookish update

Google has updated the design of its Profiles pages, bringing a more professional -- and far less haphazard -- look. It's also a little bit like a Facebook profile, though thankfully devoid of annoying recommendations and announcements of which fish your friends have unlocked.

The new look is almost snazzy enough to use as your online resume, which might explain the addition of structured data about education and employment history. Relationship status has also been added, and there are two new blocks you can use to describe yourself in brief: 10 words which describe you best and 'bragging rights.'
