Nancy White's curator insight, May 12, 2015 5:38 PM

Excited to see how we might be able to set this up in our GAFE space - students already have accounts, so this is a natural fit to facilitate student curation!

Google has just introduced "Collections", for Google+, a new service which allows any Google+ user to group his posts by topic and to create public, shareable collections of his favorite links, articles, videos and images.

 

To use Google Collections, simply go to your G+ profile page and then select "Collections" on the drop down menu appearing on the top left part of the page.

 

"Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections."

 

You can either create new posts containing whatever type of content inside a collection, or assign an existing, published post to a collection you have just created.

 

You can create as many collections as you like.

 

Google+ Collections is available on the web and on Android (iOS coming later).

 

 

My comment: Google+ Collections adds opportunity for creating additional value to G+ users by letting interests drive community engagement. This is a feature that sooner or later any social network will offer. 

 

Free to use.
