Collections - sorry for the spam!

I tested the Collections feature on PC and just realised that I've got loads of unwanted posts on my profile!

Wonder if I could turn them off like with Communities?

I'm late on the game, but I just found out about the Collections feature here in G+ - maybe because I've mostly used iPad lately and there seems to be no collections yet.

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:

Create your collections today and share what you love.

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

Collection is a great feature according to me. You may not include those posts in your collections. Let them be in your public profile or may be simply delete. I think that is the only solution.

After purchasing my first smartphone summer 2011 (second hand Nexus One) I've taken an increasing amount of visual memories - mostly in passing and in a hurry without a tripod. In February 2013 a friend of mine lent me a Pentax K100, which I try to practice with. In January 2014 I changed my mobile for a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, in August 2014 I bought a 2nd hand NEX-6. 

There seems to be more than just the weight of the gear and technical issues at hand that hinder me: adopting the identity of a "real" shooter instead of a "mere" androidographer. 

From January 2013 I've revived again my interest in music and started to build playlists in YouTube.

Bragging rights
As a non-public figure got over 1 000 new followers in less than a fortnight (23.12.2011 - 3.1.2012) in Google+ - due to snapshots posted with Daily Photography Themes hashtags, I thought at the time. After I got over 11 000 new followers during 12.4.-30.5.2013 without any change in my G+ behaviour, I wondered if that was the case after all. If the raise is just due to changes in the algorithm for the suggested users list (SUL), there's really nothing to brag about :)
