I was asked:What is the difference between Collections and Communities
Two different animals.
Communities are for anyone to discuss, share stuff and get together.
Collections are more condensed:
They are unique and yours.
You can show what your interests are.
You don't have to limit posting about the stuff you love, thinking you are inundating your followers, you just put the topics in collections and anyone can follow those - whether they follow you or not.
I can skip all the American football stuff around Super Bowl.
I can skip all the politics.
Now I can share Finnish language posts without getting complaints.
:D I have a Finnish collection, not on auto-follow.
One can use a private collection for bookmarking, a feature that has been requested very much.
One can browse posts around a certain topic from the pros and learn.
Makes it easier for me to find my own posts.
- I wish we get Collections added to search later and also get to search within a Collection.
Google+ is interest based and this just goes to further enhance our experience.
- I can be more in control of what I see in my Home stream.
Just a beginning, I think: A tip of the iceberg.What are your thoughts? #Collections #Communities
