G+ Collections is a brand new feature and many people are asking about the potential benefits of creating them.
Well, here's one: they can help people find and follow your content. I've just come across these 'Suggested' Collections within my stream. Frankly, neither of these suggestions is relevant to me but I'm sure I'll be tempted by some.
Are you loving or hating the new Collections feature?

I've just noticed that post hashtags, including the Google+ auto-generated ones, are missing from the top right-hand corner of posts. When did that happen?
Starting today, Google will start to show Tweets in Google Search on mobile devices.
Another reason to dust off your Twitter account!
One of my highlights of 2014 was meeting multiple MotoGP world champion who kindly signed a couple of posters for us.
I'm very pleased to finally get this one up on my office wall at work. I think it's much better than the usual 'legal' prints we lawyers tend to favour!
Jorge's motto is Keep Fighting which is something that I shall remember to do every time I look at this. Thank you Jorge!

According to this post from , G+ is removing the ability to share circles.
Shared Circle chains, which encourage people to randomly add and share a circle to stay in it, can lead to lots of irrelevant connections (but which can, in reality, simply be ignored). However, I've made lots of great connections via shared curated circles ( 's excellent #BritBrands circles spring to mind).
The ability to share circles with specific people has also been a brilliant way to help new users make a start on G+.
I think removing it is a step which reduces the functionality of G+ so I'd say this is a bit of a backward step.
What do you think? Will you miss the ability to share, or be included in, shared circles?

and have told us about the missing share buttons on the circles page. After checking our database we can confirm that there haven't been any new shared circles in the last 1.5 days.
The Top Contributors , and have confirmed that the shared circles are being deprecated.
Shared Circles have always been pretty difficult.
Sharing a circle is a pretty useful feature. You can help a new Google+ User get a good starting point without having to use the SUL (=Suggested User List).
But it was also used often in a bad way ("reshared to get included") which led to unrelated/uninterested new followers.
Regardless of what you think about shared circles, it feels pretty strange that this feature is being removed. At least our service isn't called SharedCircleCount, so that we don't have to worry about loosing this feature ;)
What do you think?
Is it a good or a bad move?
Will it help improving the engagement on Google+?
Maybe Google can do something about all the pretty oriental girls with very little profile information and just a sexy photograph that keep adding me.
I'm pleased to say that the naked men with all their bits showing seems to have stopped.
