Google+ Communities with better Anti-Spam Controls

Google+ Communities, which can be easily created, lightweight discussion forums and are full of prospects and potential followers. They are best ways to connect with people who share your interests, get the latest news on the subject and even plan things like meetups, conventions and events. The issue with online communities is that people with less than savory intentions get on board, such as spammers, flamers and bullies.

There are moderation tools in Google+ Communities to remove, report and ban them. But they could just as easily come back with brand new profiles. To makes things easier for Community owners and moderators, Google+ today rolled out a better content control and anti-spam filter. With the filters being a bit smarter and more strict, moderators will see less questionable content hitting their communities.

The new changes are already available for new communities being created and will be on by default. For existing communities the feature is being rolled out gradually, Sure this is a good step towards keeping the communities spam-free.
