Google+ Collections allow people to follow just the content they are interested in. You can follow (or unfollow) any collection whether you have the Collection creator in your Circles or not.
What kinds of Collections can you create?
1. Caterday Posts (or any other topic that some people find annoying)
If some of the folks who have you in their Circles hate cats, they can unfollow that collection without removing you from their Circles
2. Posts on a hobby or topic you are passionate about
People who have similar interests can follow your Collection without adding you to their circles.
3. Your YouTube comments or Blogger blog comments
If you set up the Collection so that it is not followed automatically, the people in your circles won't find your YouTube comments (or blog comments) in your stream. And it will help you later find your comments all in one place.
4. Posts about a specific event or trip
A collection makes it easier to find all your posts on a particular topic in one place, even months or years later.
5. A Circle-limited Collection of photos, albums and stories
If you share photos with limited Circle of friends and family, create a Collection shared with just that Circle. They can then find all your photo sharing posts by opening that Collection on your profile.
6. A library of tutorials
If you post tutorials, tips or tricks, collect them all into one place, and share the entire Collection as a library of information or link to it on your own website.
7. A local guide
If you post photos, tips, or reviews about your home town - or any location - put those posts in a Collection for an easily-referred to travel guide.
8. Private Bookmarks
You can use the quick share option to share any Google+ post into a Collection. If you create a private Bookmarking collection, you can then easily find all those posts all in one place.
9. Language-specific Collections
If you post in more than one language, you can separate your posts into different Collections based on language. Your followers can then decide which posts they want to see in their stream.
10. Highlight your favorite Community posts
You can re-share public Community posts into a Collection.
The possibilities are almost endless.

Well done Google ; -(
provides an overview of the migration from Freebase to Wikidata as a primary source of Google Knowledge Graph information.
Noam actually took the trouble to go through the logs of the office hours that they posted via Google+ and found both interesting and amusing entries.
For what it's worth the question of whether or not "companies" should be editing Wikidata entries is a moot one, since those in with a vested interest a particular entity (the representatives of an organization) will do so anyway.
And, yes, among these new editors will those with an interest in ensuring the information about their organization is accurate and up to date, and who are both motivated and excellently positioned to do so - sorry, I mean "annoying SEO/web design" types.
