Google+ finally launched their latest feature, Collections to the public. Announced by Dmitry Shaprio as a new way to group your posts by topic; simply put Google’s Collections allows users to create boards of images, videos and other content. This can then be categorised helping you further to get your content found.
Sound a little bit too familiar? The concept and indeed look and feel is very similar to Pinterest but that doesn’t come as a big surprise as Google+ seems to replicate similar features from other social networks. Putting that that aside on initial inspection it appears to be a very useful feature and indeed will be welcomed by many. Whether it will be compete against Pinterest and help convince those more skeptical of the value of Google+ remains to be seen. So far it gets our thumbs up but to be fair we have been big advocates of Google+ for a while and have got huge value from it, not only for Comms Axis but also for our clients. Feel free to check out our latest collections here. The gif below literally took a few seconds to create!
