Updated on August 22 ✪ Ahh... Finally there! This article is the last (of course this is not all on Google+) of the series "Top 5 reasons you should be on Google+", for a quick recap: [1] Immersive Look-and-Feel, [2] Circles, [3] Communities and [4] Collections. And here goes:
Google+ Events Events is a very useful feature helpful in organising a get-together. An Event can be created for connecting online or gathering at a place for party, meeting or any function. When you create an event, you can invite guests and track your invitation (accepted, tentative or not responded). The event is put on your and your guests' Google Calendar. You and your guests can upload photos to a common shared Photo album so that all event participants can view them. If the event is created as public, the photos are public.

Updated on 18th August, 2017 ✪ The post is current and up-to-date now. To recap, in this 5-article series on 'Why Google+', we have discussed so far: Immersive Look-and-FeelCircles and Communities. My next take is Google+ Collections ! Collections is as exciting as the first 3. Here it goes:

To maintain this focus, sometimes it involved removing features like Photos and Location sharing and other times, introducing new features like Collections and programs like Google+ Create. For years, Google+ is developing and growing continuously as a social media platform where people engage around their interests with the content they curious about and with the people who inspire them.
