Join Christchurch Elite – a Google Plus community
‘…we’ve spent a lot of time listening to what people using Google+ had to say. 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.’
So what is Google+ Communities? ‘Communities, which in its present form has 1.2m ‘joins’ from people each day, the company claims, allows people to join sections they’re interested in — such as Game of Thrones. Collections gives a view of the latest content on broader topics — Google gives surfing as an example — and allows you to gather material from across the web to share.’
What has emerged from Google’s tinkering with Plus is a stripped down approach. Rather than viewing Plus as a social network, Google now considers it as a platform.
Which seems like a savvy concept, and another reason why Google+ will never die.
Don’t fight Facebook’s newsfeed structure; create something entirely different.
So, in the future, Plus will be all about its features. Hangouts, Streams, and Community, and Collections will allow users to connect with other people, organise information based on their likes, and better navigate the internet within a more structured environment.
Anyway, Christchurch Elites community aims to gather together elite providers, talk shop, may be a get together even.
What say you? Join Christchurch Elites.
