On 6th December, 2012 we witnessed the great event – New Communities Feature in Google+ Plus introduced from Google. There are the same features like forums or groups in Facebook and Yahoo! where the like-minded people gather in one place and talk about similar interests. This is novelty for Google Plus and the very long-awaited feature. Thanks to Communities the number of users has rapidly grown for the last days.
As the other similar tools, Communities give a chance to find someone with similar affinities, to share experience and find answers for burning issues. Mobile brands, travelling, finance, sport, cooking and more communities are at your disposal. Now you don’t have to add people to see the news or posts you are interested in (sometimes) – all you need is to find community that covers specific interests and join it.
- Public - Anyone can join or see the members: the best for food, photography, sports team, bands, etc.
- Public - Moderator approval needed to join, anyone can see the members: the best for running club, alumni of your school, local businesses, etc.
- Private - People can find through search and request to join, only its members can see the content and each other: the best for people from your sport team, coteries, etc.
- Private - Hidden from people and any searches. If you want to join it you need to get an invitation. All the posts of such community are also hidden from non-members. The best for party planning committee, small group of friends, family, etc.
