Google+ update: Collections for interests!

Google+ update: Collections for interests! | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it

Collections have arrived!

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into.
You can move your old posts to collections without needing to reshare them. You can start sharing new posts directly into collections.

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.

An enhancement to our posts, blogs and content creation, be it photos or text.

Jaana Nyström's insight:

Great update for Google+, making it the interest platform.
