This is a great piece of content I found about Google + Communities. I started a community on curation, and I recommend starting and joining a few communities of your own. Without going into to much detail, I will let the author of the piece Lilach Bullock get you up to speed, and teach you everything you need to know.

It really has been a long time coming for Google to launch their Google + “Communities”. It’s hard to believe that it took them more than a year to come up with their version of the popular Facebook Groups. I personally only use Google+ for business reasons, so I’m especially curious to see how Google+ Communities could help me with that.
Who uses Google+?
For all you Google + skeptics, let’s first take a quick look at Google+. Today, it is the fastest-growing social network ever. Over 500 million people have upgraded, 235 million are active across Google and 135 million are active in just the stream.
