Google starts prompting Google+ Communities

Google is starting to promote Google + and new platform features more frequently. The latest change and promotion appeared on Wednesday (Why do most social updates rollout out on Wed?). The company launched Communities last month and is now actively prompting the new feature.

Over on Google Plus Daily there was this update…

Later when I clicked over to a new page I was prompted to “create your community” with Google +. There was also a link with tips on how to manage your community. Google+ explanes that communities are places for people to get together and talk about the interests they share.

Browse recommended communities

  1. Click the  Communities icon on the left side of Google+
    If you don’t see the icon, click More More to see additional links to parts of Google+
  2. Look through the recommended communities. Click on any of the communities you’d like to explore
  3. Click Join this community

This is Google’s response to  Facebook  & LinkedIn groups. And why not, if there’s something you’re interested in or you’re an expert about, Google+ wants you to connect and share your passion.

Since the beginning, Google+ has been promoted as the place to help people crowd around common interests while also discovering new things and meeting people. Whether it’s Hangouts, Circles, the Explore feature, trending topics, or anything else, there are ways to find conversations all over the site.
