Google just introduced a new feature to its struggling social network. Google+ Topics, a stream of Collections and Communities, greets users to the upper right corner, in a white box with blue frames.
New Google+ Topics Feature Helps Users Find Friends and Communities
With literally hundreds of topics available, from travel, to photography, to crafts, camping, and much more, Google+ Topics places a rotating stream front-and-center.
The company announced, “Today, there are already hundreds of Topics available in English, Spanish and Portuguese, covering everything from black-and-white photography to hiking and camping. So whether you’ve recently discovered the wonders of woodworking, love gardening, or can’t get enough street photography, there’s a stream of unique and interesting stuff waiting for you on Google+.”
The Google Plus Topics card lists collections and communities the social network thinks interests its users. Google previously tested the feature for at least a few weeks but now, it’s available platform wide. At this time, only the network itself can create topics.
Back in January, Google+ added a low-quality comment filter and brought back Events.
