Google+ Communities are one of the best ways to get involved in discussions about IT, emerging technology and government. For agency leaders, IT managers and the private sector, these platforms serve as a catalyst for conversation and insight.
There are a number of active communities available to anyone with a Google account, and FedTech has curated 12 of the best. The discussions range from IT security to the White House petition to revoke Justin Bieber’s green card, and everything in between. Luckily, the “in between” includes topics like open data, cybersecurity, BYOD, cloud computing, Big Data and the Internet of Things. It’s a well-rounded list, but if you believe we’ve left out an important Community, please let us know in the Comments or on Twitter.
