Am I hearing it right that Google really heard numerous requests for adding true Shared Groups to Google+ - like Facebook is having for a while?  Is it going to merge with existing Google Groups stuff?  What about GMail Contact Groups?

I couldn't believe it but is the following - *Discussion categories to find the conversations you care about most* - a tip that Google actually heard our endless outcries about adding most effective way to control noise on Google+ Content Channels?

With Google+ Communities there’s now a gathering place for your passions, including:
Public or private membership to support all kinds of groups - from topics and interests to local neighborhoods to regular poker nights
Discussion categories to find the conversations you care about most
The option to start hangouts and plan events with community members
The ability to share with your community from any +1 button across the web
