Google today announced new features to its new Social site Google +. Google announced Google + Communities which which integrate group functions into Google+, are rolling out across the site today. Detailing Google + Communities, Google said, Community membership can be public or private and support anything from local neighborhoods to groups arranged around a common interest or activity.
Google also explains it as:
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.
Google+ Communities Features
- 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
