You must be thinking that how its possible that without going to any other page of Google+, user can get all the features or can see others post etc. So, stop thinking for this because it is possible through Hovercards which uses the Google + API.

What is Hovercard and how it is used?

Hovercards is a window like page which opens when you do hovering over the name or pic of the users of Google plus. What actually happens is when you see the notifications of Google plus and you see your friends either commented on your posts or had sent you a friend request or notification for anything you have got, you go to the notification tab on the top right corner with the red numbers rolling inside, it opens drop down list containing the notification details.

So what you have to do is just take your mouse pointer over the pic of your friend or on the name of your friend, it will open another drop down menu and at the bottom of that drop down menu, you will see a link "public posts", just take your mouse pointer(mouseover) to that link. It will open another small hovercards where you can see three more options:

Recent: On mouseovering to recent you can see your friends or user of Google+'s recent posts. All the posts meant for you and has been kept visible for you will be there.
Top: On mouseovering to top, you can see the top posts posted by that particular users. Top posts means the posts which got highest +1'd and comments etc.
Cloud: On mouseovering to Cloud you can see all the commonalities between you and the user whom you are seeing now. It will show you all the common attribute you both have, which will help you to know each other more and if its unknown you can easily then decide, whether to accept him/her or not.

Not only this, the hovercards also show you how many post that particular user post in a day and how many points he earn per posts.
