Collections on Google+

I will be honest, on first look I did not get the benefit of the new Collections on Google+.

The more I explored Collections the more useful it seemed. The primary use is a way for you to follow or other to follow specific collection that are of interest.

I think another important use is as a way to organinize (bookmark) Google+ posts you find interesting or want to follow up on. Previously, I used a Fav circle for this, but I think Collections will make this even easier.

One aspect of Collections that I am not a fan of is not being able to change sharing after collection is created. For example, you may begin with a collection just shared with yourself and want to share it with a circle or publically.
