How Collections are different from Communities

You can follow a Collection or join a Community. Both let you keep up with your interests.

Collections

  • Just one person creates and manages a Collection, and only that person can post to that Collection.
  • You can follow someone else's Collection to see what they share, but you can't share posts into someone else’s Collection.

Communities

  • Communities can have more than one owner and moderator, and other people can join.
  • When you're a member of a Community, you can post to that Community. Members of that Community may see your posts in their home stream.
