Find Google+ Collections on CircleCount

A week after Google+ launched the Collections and after we have tracked a few collections, we are happy to introduce a search for Collection on CircleCount.
Search for any word/keyword/phrase or whatever you want to find the Collections that could be interesting for you.
In the results you will see the owner of the Collection and also the number of followers the Collection has and (most interesting): the cover of the Collection
As you can see in the attached screenshot "food" has been visualized in different ways by +Mike Elgan, +Luria Petrucci, +Jackie M, +Larry Fournillier, +Jaana Nyström, +Janice Mansfield  and many more.

This is not the first time where we are surprised that Google+ isn't offering a search for a new feature, but
We are here to help ;)

So far we have found 39,705 Collections from 15,108 profiles and pages. And we are finding daily new Collections.
What is your favorite Collection?

An interesting update by +Bradley Horowitz!

There are pretty different views on this info.
It's really interesting to check the comments on the linked article ( which are btw. (still) Google+ comments ;)

You can read comments like these there:

- "Google is going to make some big changes to make Google+ better." +Marc-André Beauchamp

- "Google+ (the social layer) is Dead.  Long live Google+ (the network)!" +Eli Fennell 

- "Ultimately, I may not agree with every move, but I think it's for the best. This will allow the Google+ product team to focus on being social and not having to be the jack of all trades." +Derek Ross 

- "Anyone who is naive enough to think this recent news is good for Google+ needs a reality check: This is the end." +Christina Warren 

- "Cool." +Matt Cutts 

- "The only thing constant is change!" +Ronnie Bincer 

Interesting to see that +Bradley Horowitz is sharing the news on Google+ though ;)

Everything in Its Right Place

It’s been a little more than a quarter since I took on leadership of a newly formed team, which we’ve christened SPS: Streams, Photos, and Sharing.

In that short time, I’ve had some time to reflect on the products we’ve built over the last few years, and also the opportunity to oversee the launch of our new Google Photos product. I’ve concluded that it’s time for a “pivot”... or more precisely time to talk more openly about a pivot that’s been underway for some time (and in fact is reflected in the name of the new team). We're going to continue focusing Google+ on helping users connect around the interest they love, and retire it as the mechanism by which people share and engage within other Google products.

Four years ago when we conceived of the “Google+ Project”, we made it clear that our goals were always two-fold: Google+ aspired to be both a “platform layer that unified Google’s sharing models”, and a product / stream / app in its own right.

This was a well-intentioned goal, but as realized it led to some product experiences that users sometimes found confusing. For instance, and perhaps most controversially, integration with YouTube implied that leaving a comment on YouTube (something users had obviously been doing successfully for years) suddenly and unexpectedly required “joining Google+.”

We decided it’s time to fix this, not only in YouTube, but across a user’s entire experience at Google. We want to formally retire the notion that a Google+ membership is required for anything at Google… other than using Google+ itself.  

Some of the consequences of this shift in thinking have already been deployed. Others we’re rolling out as fast as possible (e.g. the changes to YouTube we referenced today). And many more will roll out over the rest of the year.

What does this mean for Google+ the product? Relieved of the notion of integrating with every other product at Google, Google+ can now focus on doing what it’s already doing quite well: helping millions of users around the world connect around the interest they love. Aspects of the product that don’t serve this agenda have been, or will be, retired. But you’ll also see a slew of improvements that make this use case shine (like the recent launch of Collections -

It’s been incredibly gratifying to see how this strategy has played out as realized in the recent Google Photos launch, a product which in many ways embodies and telegraphs the changes discussed above. Google Photos not only doesn’t require a Google+ account, but as much of the functionality as possible doesn’t even require an account at all. It was important to me that when we launched Google Photos, we stressed the product implements sharing by any means a user prefers… without compromise or agenda. This is the right thing for users and the feedback and usage has been extremely validating.

I’m excited to share this strategy with the world, excited about what it means for Google+, and most of all for all of Google’s users.

15 Folds contacted me to make a gif. They may have seen my work on a blog, reblogged from another blog, and so on… Now I’m reaching you. Did you know we have no more than six degrees of separation from friend to friend?

Today is the 4th birthday of Circlecount!
Since we are a company concerned about numbers, our +Rick Lutz made a little graphic, showing some of the stunning numbers we have achieved over the past few years.
This was all just possible because of you people supporting us. :)
So thank you very much!

Looks like we need a "fun" collection...

+Chris L​ Google is paying Twitter for access to their posts. Less likely to run into accusations of monopoly if they keep it at arms reach.

A great weekend to everyone who is looking on 9 circles right now!
I recall my friends at +CircleCount was requesting to post a circle shape or two so here's my contribution.

Thank you for your invaluable service on G+ CC. It does not go unnoticed.

You can find the same illusion also here:

Thanks +Jon Hole for bringing this to our attention!
Watch carefully, all these suns move lineary! Some call it cycloidal illusion, it is just a spirograph. Hypnotic! by
