Google Plus Collections is Released and it is Nothing Like Pinterest

Collections allows you to “collect” your own posts all into one category. I’m not quite sure what the point of this feature is. “Collections” give users a new tab on their profile.

Some websites are comparing Collections to Pinterest. I do not see the similarity. At all. They are two very different things. Comparing Collections to Pinterest is like comparing Apples to Zebras. Collections simply allows you to organize your own posts. Does that sound like Pinterest to you? No.
