Google Plus Collections Feature - Where to Next?

In May 2015, I published a quick post via Daily Two Cents titled Google Plus Collections Feature to express my excitement about this new feature added to the Google Plus social network. Started experimenting with it by creating three (3) collections for my foodie business page, Everyday Exotic Spices.  Was it worth the effort?  Let me share some info and stats.

Concluded my DTC post with this paragraph:

"Where to next? Not a clue. It’s an adventure! Just set up my groupings 3 days ago and don’t have a prediction. However, can say (1) it’s easy and fun; and (2) it appears these Collections are going to add value to my overall Internet experience, business-wise and otherwise."

Well this post is about where I went next.
Follow along!



Created several more G+ collections.  One more for my foodie page; one for my shopping business page; two for my work-at-home / home business brand account; and three for my profile.  Why?  Why not??  It's easy to do.  G+  posts are indexed.  It's a "type" of advertising.  It is very similar to Pinterest with respect to organizing items of interests to you.  Also, you can add your shares from several years back and retrieve them later if they are in your collection. (G+ users probably know how hard can be sometimes to find your old posts.)   It's sort of like Facebook memories, but not quite.  Here is a list of my new collections created since 2015.
