Google+ DIY Audio community.

There was no DIY Audio community on Google+.

So I made one.

Google+ has always been a "quiet room" where like-minded people got together to talk about things, away from the noise and chaos of facebook.

The problem was that it was difficult to find said like-minded people. They were there, but for the majority you had no way of knowing that.

Well, now Google has fixed that by introducing "communities". It's a user-created hub, a digital meeting room ~ salon ~ lounge ~ front porch, a designated gathering place associated with a certain hobby, interest, or topic.

This feature is brand new, so I have no idea whether it will work. It could, like facebook, devolve into noise and spam... or it might be useful and worthwhile. I think its worth a shot, anyway.

I created the group, but it is free and open. It's not mine in the sense I don't intend to use it as a platform. I have my own G+ page for that.

Update Dec 23rd:

DIY Audio G+ community passes 100 members.

Update Jan 31st:

DIY Audio G+ community passes 200 members.

Update April 15th:

DIY Audio G+ community passes 300 members (some while ago, I forgot to make note of it).

    Google seems to have deliberately made it difficult to link to a community page from outside of the Google+ environment.

    The link above works for me though. I copy it again below to double check:

    I think I found the problem. The URL is different for me because I have owner privileges. The following should be the correct URL for general access, and I've edited original post to match.
