Google has announced a new feature for its social network called Google+ Communities.
From photography to astronomy (and everything in between), Google+ has always been a place to crowd around common interests and meet new people. What’s been missing, however, are more permanent homes for all the stuff you love: the wonderful, the weird, and yes, even the things that are waaay out there. With Google+ Communities there’s now a gathering place for your passions.
● Public or private membership to support all kinds of groups—from topics and interests to local neighborhoods to regular poker nights
● Discussion categories to find the conversations you care about most
● The option to start hangouts and plan events with community members
● The ability to share with your community from any +1 button across the web
Starting today Communities will be rolled out to Google+ users. Look out for the new icon in Google+. Mobile is coming soon.
