A brand new discover stream on Google+

We're rolling out an exciting new feature that will help you find the coolest content on G+. Tell us what you think!
Find content and communities from all across Google+ with Discover

Big news today Google+! We’re rolling a brand new Discover stream to help you and new users find the absolutely best content our network has to offer. If you glance over at your left-hand navigation bar, you’ll notice a shiny ‘Discover’ tab waiting to be explored. Inside, you’ll find trending posts from curated sources in a new, denser format. Also inside are Featured Collections, Recommended Communities, and the previously announced Topics - which got a bit of a makeover as well, so be sure to check them out!

New and signed out users will land on Discover (previously ‘Featured Collections’) which puts content from a diverse set of sources front and center. We hope that this creates a better experience for new users that more readily communicates the awesome stuff G+ has to offer while providing existing users with a fun way to find and follow creators they haven’t yet, ahem, discovered.

To make way for Discover, you may have noticed we removed the Collections tab and the Events tab. Don’t worry! Collections and Events aren’t gone; they’ve just been moved. ‘Featured Collections’ have a new home within Discover and ‘Your / Followed Collections’ can be found by clicking on ‘Communities and Collections’ on your profile. Events can now be found in the overflow menu (three dots) on your profile when you can also find your Insights.

These changes will be live on web and iOS within the next day or so for all users. As always, please let us know what you think by replying to this thread or using the ‘Send Feedback’ option on web or in-app. Enjoy!

Happy #WorldPhotographyDay 📸

+Colby Brown​'s "Behind The Scenes" collection provides a peek at the stories and set-ups behind some of of the beautiful shots he's captured.

Behind the Lens || Hawaii's Waterfalls

It is getting hard not to want to stop and explore every waterfall I have come across here on the east coast of The Big Island. While some are fairly accessible, such as the 442ft Akaka Falls seen here, others have no road or path, requiring a dangerous and slippery jungle hike as you forge your own path down steep slopes.

Just after taking this shot, I turned the camera horizontal and took a vertical panorama comprising of 4 images. The result will easily eclipse 100mp because of the +Sony #a7r 's resolution. Got to love monster images like that ;)

Gavino Idili is passionate photographer attracted to all aspects of life, particularly in capturing people's expressions through portrait photography.

We're nearly at the midway point of #SciFiAugust, and Denise is offering up an informal review of one of her favorite page turners.

What are you reading this month? Tag your reviews and recommendations with #WhatImReading

#SciFiAugust created by +Jacob Dix
#whatimreading for the month of August (and beyond) is science fiction
Here's a quick review of one of my favorites.....

How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe
I'm so happy to have found this book by Charles Yu,...love the unpredictable story-line....the word play...the character development.....the fun ....enjoyed the way I laughed out loud and the way it touched my heart in surprising ways......I want to keep this physical copy on my beloved "This is a Page Turner" shelf so no download on this one....I have so many passages underlined , comments written, and pages dog eared because I want to remember the lines or share them...anyone else draw in their books?
Thought a splash of bright orange would catch your eye....if you like Science Fiction with humor and introspective twists ......give this a try!
( I deleted the first post and reposted this.....so if you see it twice today..you aren't imagining things..sorry for the error :-)

Be on the lookout for this week's amazingness, the Perseid Meteor Shower

+Corina Marinescu explains this stunning annual phenomenon below

More Info: https://www.space.com/32868-perseid-meteor-shower-guide.html
Night of the Perseids
This weekend, meteors will rain down near the peak of the annual Perseid Meteor Shower. Normally bright and colorful, the Perseid shower meteors are produced by dust swept up by planet Earth from the orbit of Comet Swift-Tuttle. They streak from a radiant in Perseus, above the horizon in clear predawn skies.

Despite interfering light from August's waning gibbous moon, this year's Perseids will still be enjoyable, especially if you can find yourself in an open space, away from city lights, and in good company. Frames used in this composite view capture bright Perseid meteors from the 2016 meteor shower set against a starry background along the Milky Way, with even the faint Andromeda Galaxy just above center. In the foreground, astronomers of all ages have gathered on a hill above the Slovakian village of Vrchtepla.
