Google+ Alternatives - an interesting case made for the use of Hubzilla Channels to replace Collections
Channels (forums/feeds) on Hubziilla are quite powerful and most people just use a single one as their default feed. But you can create multiple ones with each one being a different theme/topic like G+ Collections.
The link below points to that specific post on Hubzilla. Also, very interesting point mentioned in the comments that another new social network called Osada was created by the developer of Hubzilla and it is a slightly simpler trimmed down version of Hubzilla (why? because Hubzilla is really packed with features, apps and add-ons).
Osada is open source and federated (but apparently excludes Diaspora/Pluspora which si very sad). Osada has native support for the ActivityPub protocol (W3C standard) as well as the more advanced but lesser known Zot6 protocol. It can inter-operate with other social networking applications and projects in either of these spaces, including Mastodon, Pleroma, Pixelfed, PeerTube, Funkwhale, Zap, Friendica, Hubzilla, and many more.
