Some communities on Google+ are extremely active in their specific industry and are known as a feeder community. Since the participants and moderators are particularly active in these communities, content that is originally shared with them typically will start to trend across a large segment of Google+. This is attributable to how active the participants of these communities are, as well as the influential networks some Google+ users in these communities have, which at times is thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people who have them in their circles.
I started an Apple Community on Google+ that is now the biggest Apple community there. I moderate it as much as I can myself but I also have great help from the only moderator I have chosen except for me, +Storm Williams. One of the most important thing to succeed with a community is to moderate it very often so that the members can have a spam free experience, and no trolls. The last part is especially important in an Apple community on Google+.
My Apple community is very active, with a lot of new content to discuss daily, and with great discussions. I think many of the members sees the community as a way to be visible because they have a hard time building up a following crowd of their own, and that's fine by me, because communities is meant for engagement and interaction. It's not fun to post something that no one sees. In a community with a lot of members (soon 100,000) like mine, it will be viewed by a lot of users.
I think it's exciting to see how fast it grows, with thousands of new members every week. I think that is a sign that Google+ needs my community so that they can discuss Apple and all their great products without all the hate that Google+ is filled with. I think it's fun to own a community!
