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.

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.

Muffia is one of my personal favorite bakeries / delicacies in Warsaw. Fresh baked treats and great prices, they bake for the entire city. With an expanded seating area, compared to their previous location you're welcome to have a coffee or drinks with your sweet tooth.

The Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw is definitely one of the best museums in the city. With fantastic hands on activity for kids and adults alike there's tons of different activities and things to do and see, as well as interact with. Some of the galleries change pretty often, so it's worth it to visit more than once as it's a great way for families to collaborate and have fun together, both in large groups or smaller groups. Also: check out the planetarium for super cool shows!

The fountain park in the center is quite a friendly place overlooking the river, with interactive fountains On Fridays and during the summer, the Fountain Show is one of the top rated things in the city for tourists, as once the sun sets the lights come up and the show begins with all sorts of 3d lasers and fireworks for a visual treat.

A fantastic restaurant in the center of Warsaw. If you're a foreigner, "SŁOIK" in english translates to mean "Jars" which has a double meaning for people whose family lives outside the city, cook food and put it in "Jars" so they can have leftovers of home style cooking while working and living in Warsaw. The place takes it literally with all sorts of Jar decorations and home style food giving it a real eccentric and fantastic taste for the center, with an excellent menu super fresh drinks and kind waiting staff.
