Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

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. 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.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

If you have questions then also be sure to check out our Help Center content http://goo.gl/zyIVMH; if you still can’t find an answer then please post your question in the Collections subcategory. 

Best,
Moritz & Claire

I wish I had time to check some of the links on this... but I wouldn't be surprised if this held up to some scientific research. I'm allergic to the dyes myself, and we've noticed a distinct difference in our 5yo's behavior with some foods. Not in the 3yo though...

Actually a pretty accessible explanation of monads.

Big launch for the team today!  We've hugely improved Google Contacts.  The once tedious task of "managing" your contacts on Google has been made a lot easier, more intelligent... and more beautiful...  The launch is still a 'preview', so go to contacts.google.com/preview, check it out, and let them know what you think!

Seriously, Pinterest?! There's no way to dismiss this ridiculous promo taking up half the screen. Why bother to make a mobile site at all if you're going to intentionally cripple it?

Newly-released plugin for formatting code in vim using clang-format, gofmt, and a growing list of other formatting tools.

+Matthew Fowles Kulukundis and I put a lot of work into getting it ready to release.

It's pretty shocking how bad the video editing options on Linux are. Finally found this article detailing all the completely broken options and recommending Blender as apparently the only option to successfully edit video.
A review of 6 free and open source (FOSS) video editing tools. Who came out the winner? Find out in this article on Pitivi, OpenShot, Lightworks, Avidemux, Cinelerra, KDEnlive, and Blender.

This is the open-sourced version of the build system that my colleagues and I use at Google. One of the high points of working at Google is having a really excellent set of tools to work with, and this is one of those.

How does one define a sin?
Well, it's mostly common sense. /
Then you have to light incense. /
If you practice abstinence. /
It's whatever space you're in.
