Apparently, there’s still hope for Google+. The social network (which we all thought it was dead, even Google itself I presume) debuted a brand new “Pinteresque” feature, which aims to breathe new life to the troubled social media network.
The new feature, which is called Collections, helps users group their posts by topic. Sounds like Pinterest? Well, that’s where Google+ got inspired from. Users can post their photos on specific collections and set the visibility settings for each one of them.
Once users create their first collection, an additional tab will appear on their profile, where it will show all collections available so that other users can follow them. And the similarities don’t end here. New posts in collections one follows appear on the home stream, with a link to the collection, so that users can discover more of the content they like.
Well, there’s no sincerest form of flattery than imitation, right?
