Google+ have now released Google+ Communities and I have a quick Guide on how you can setup your own Community. The premise is quite simple. You login to your Google+ Account and you will notice a new “Community” icon on left hand side (it started rolling out today) You then create a Community, add a logo, a description, location and then invite people from your circles. You can choose to make it a private community or a public community. The idea is simple, to collectively get around an idea, a general topic or industry. Share photos, videos, events, hangouts!

Here are some notes from Google
Create private communities: Gather real-world groups of people like your basketball buddies, fellow classmates and family. If you find yourself sharing regularly with the same core group of people, communities are a fast and fun way to stay in touch.
Join public communities: No matter what you’re into, there are people on Google+ you can talk with about it. Search for public communities around the topics you’re passionate about and join the conversation. You’ll be learning new things and making friends in no time.
Share how you want, when you want: There are lots of way to share with your communities. Get home welding tips from your DIY pals in a hangout, share restaurant reviews with fellow foodies, or use Google+ Events to plan your next block party. You can share with communities from anywhere you find Google+: on YouTube, Google Maps, or through the +1 button on sites across the web.
