If you’ve ever envied the big names Product Hunt has invited to curate special collections of tech products, this one’s for you.
Today the community-powered leaderboard for tech products is launching Collections, a new feature that lets registered users create their own (you guessed it) collections. Along with its own team, Product Hunt has invited select special folks to curate them for quite some time, and its community members now can, too.
To create a collection, go to your first chosen item, and click on the collections icon on the right (it pretty much looks like a hamburger icon). Product Hunt has already provided you with a couple of collections to start with but you can also make your own. And of course, you have the option of adding a hero image (like a profile picture) for each collection. All of your collections can be found on your profile.
While making collections is a pretty personal activity, Product Hunt’s team has a hunch you’ll mostly use them for bookmarking (apparently some community members have gone as far as making Trello boards for this in the past), and to share with others your take on the best or most interesting products.
Next up, Product Hunt’s team will soon enable users to include products that aren’t already posted on the site, among other planned improvements to the service.
