Google+ introduces Communities, network now 235 million active users strong
According to Google, their Google+ network is continuing to pick up steam. With over 500 million total accounts, over half – 235 million – are active, making G+ the fastest growing social network around.
To help continue the traffic growth, Google has now announced Google+ Communities, and it’s exactly what you think it is. According to Google:
With Google+ Communities there’s now a gathering place for your passions, including:
- 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
A new “Communities” icon will be rolling out on a G+ page near you starting today. All you have to do is click on it and either start or join a community.
Be sure to let us know what you think!
