Google+ Update now focuses more on Communities and Collections
Google+ Update is finally here, after a lot of speculation during this year Google released the update for Google+ pages and now will focus more on Communities, where you can join a discussion on a topic of interest (be it zombies or wine, etc.) and Collections, where you can find information and learn about the topic of your interest.
On November 17, 2015 Eddie Kessler, Director of Streams commented Google’s Official Blog
There were two features they kept coming back to: Communities, which now average 1.2 million new joins per day, and Collections, which launched just five months ago and is growing even faster. Whether it’s the Nonfiction Addiction Community, where people can be found discussing the best in Crime or Travel storytelling, or the Watch Project Collection, where more than 40,000 people are following an antique watch hobbyist, these are the places on Google+ where people around the world are spending their time discovering and sharing things they love. And so we’ve reimagined Google+ to help them do that. Today, we’re starting to introduce a fully redesigned Google+ that puts Communities and Collections front and center. Now focused around interests, the new Google+ is much simpler. And it’s more mobile-friendly—we’ve rebuilt it across web, Android and iOS so that you’ll have a fast and consistent experience whether you are on a big screen or small one. You’ll need to opt-in to this new version of Google+ on the web to see the changes—check out our Google+ post for more on how to give it a try.
Of course, Communities and Collections is not where the update stops, the new Google+ makes it easier to post, search, connect, and keep up with great content in a fully redesigned home stream. They also made sure the content loads fast and works without a hitch on all devices, big and small.
Go ahead and give Google+ a try today, share your opinion of what you think. Google is always improving so for sure this is just one of the many updates to come, which we always welcome.
