Looks like Google doesn’t want to leave any stone unturned to emerge as the ultimate social media giant. Now, Google has ventured into an image sharing platform that functions on the lines of Pinterest. It launched ‘Collections’ for Google+ that allows users to create specific posts that includes videos, photos and more.
Google announced the news via its Google+ post and it said “Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.”
Google says that the emphasis was more on the posts that conveyed an exclusive subject. The post further said “an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into.”
“Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections,” adds the Google+ post while introducing the feature.
“Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow,” notes Google+ post.
In order to create a Collection on PC, all that a Google+ user has to do is to select the Collections option on their Google+ profile homepage. After entering the name for the new Collection, a user can then set the privacy permissions on the post and choose who it should be visible to. Likewise, Google+ users can also create a new Collection on Android app.
