People share a lot of great content on Google+. Unfortunately, without RSS feed functionality, it can be hard to follow everything. And when one article catches your attention, there is no option to save it — unless you have created an empty Circle for that specific purpose.
Or, if you use Chrome, you can give Favorite Posts for Google+ a try. Once installed, the extension automatically adds a star button at the bottom of each post in your stream. Clicking it will allow you to save the post in a separate section of your profile. To access it, click the “Favorites” tab in the left-hand menu.
The extension comes with several other features, including the ability to bookmark comments and embedded posts, and send updates to Instapaper, Pocket, and Circlecount.
Note that you can also use the +1 button to favorite content. This option must be enabled from the Extension Settings (under “More”) at the top of your Favorites stream.
