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.

dark on the underside, light on the inside, i'm here because of love

I'm an American living in Warsaw working as a consultant and designer for an international company. I also do philanthropy work for an organization based in Germany. I love to travel and I’ve experienced close to thirty-five countries and over fifty different cultures. I've been shooting for quite a few years now, loving mostly landscape and architecture, because of the travel, but recently have been getting into doing portraits, people, fashion.. etcetera.

I consider myself an artist, so my hope is to attempt to create images with other talented individuals that evoke originality. Creativity, hope and a sense of humor are goals that I strive for. So when you shoot with me, it's guaranteed to be an easy-going, smiley, good time! On a non photography side I love inventions and creative music with a dash of strategy gaming.

I speak English and Spanish pretty fluently, but I can also understand words and sentences in Polish, Korean, Italian, Chinese, German and quite a bit of Hawaiian Pidgin. While most of my languages aren't so fantastic I would love to be fluent someday.

In the extensive travel that I've been through in my life, I can say that TXL is by far the worst I've experienced in the EU. The "security" guards are a complete joke searching you as if you were a criminal, specifically Marcus Naerth the "Security Supervisor". Layout is a joke, there's ridiculous construction and airport shuttle drivers need to retake their tests. I would recommend to skip this horrible airport and spend your money elsewhere. I personally will have nothing ever again to do with wasting my time or emotions at this retched place.

Came to visit Piękny Brzeg with some polish friends, the place was fantastic and I had a really good time. I'd highly recommend it and can see the place getting pretty popular in the future.

Namaste India is one of the most authentic international food experiences in Warsaw. With authentic interior decorating and fantastic dishes, it's no wonder why the place is one of the top restaurants in the centrum area. In the summer they have a nice patio eating area where you can feel the breeze and watch the people go about their daily business while licking your lips on sweet butter chicken.

Mały Format is a fantastic local cafe, which caters to the Żoliborz area. With local owners, you can grab amazingly handmade sandwiches and coffee and read all sorts of the latest magazines. There's also a small outside seating area, if the weather is nice.

A fantastic elegant sweet spot, with refined desserts that are exotic for your taste buds, Cukiernia Odette is out to impress. Choose between a handful of sophisticated and classy confections and be blown away by the explosions in your mouth.

Spokojna Restaurant is a pretty local place, with open air, they are set up to do quite a few different banquets and larger parties, but yet as well cater and offer great options for families with kids eating in the afternoons, evenings and over the weekends.
