Despite some rumors that claims a decrease in popularity, Google seems hard at work in expanding G+’s feature set and in its latest move is adding a brand new feature called Collections.
So what is collections? Basically, we are looking at Google’s take on Pinterest. Google+ users can now create a collection of posts (with text, video, images, etc) based on a specific interest. These collections can then be shared with the general public, privately, or with certain specific users. After creating your first collection, your profile will add a new tab that lets others easily find and follow all your collections. Collections can also be customized with a color and header image of your choice.
Collections will be available both for web, Android, and web users. Keep in mind that back-end access is being turned on for a number of people, but it has yet to reach everyone.
What do you think of the new feature?
