2013 STECH: Google Plus--Now with Communities!

Google Plus--Now with Communities!
-
Google plus has taken the next step.  Communities.  And we, the people from the virtual worlds, are right in step.   The Create Community feature had hardly opened when virtual worlds communities started to appear.
-
Here is a link: Google+
-
A sampling of communities already formed:
  • Virtual World Video
  • Virtual Educators
  • -
  • Second Life Art
  • Second Life Music
  • Second Life and other virtual worlds
  • Second Life
  • -
  • OSgrid.org
By the time you read this, there will probably be more, so look for yourself.  Or create your own community if you want.

Advantages of  Google+
  • It is not Facebook
  • Any Google account (Gmail) works also with G+
  • You can turn off all game invitations in one click
  • You can use a voice-video hangout with members 
  • No limit on the number of groups you can join
  • The population seems to be more tech-savvy
