Google+ Collections Feature

Google+ Collections feature we've heard so much about in recent days now appears to be going live for some users, though Google hasn't actually released the official announcement.
Google Plus Collections a new feature from Google+  that allows users to create boards of images, videos, and other content categorized around specific interests. The feature sounds a whole lot like Google's take on a Pinterest board: it allows users to make multiple collections, fill them with images, and follow public collections that they're interested in.
Signaling the new feature is a revised share button on individual posts. The button now has a dropdown menu, which will prompt a user to share said post to a collection or create a new collection.
