What is Collectives on Stack Overflow?

Collectives™ on Stack Overflow is a grouping of content around a product/service or product suite of a technology organization. Its grouping is based on tags, and together forms a home for this organization on Stack Overflow. It’s a place for users where they can find any content related to that product/service, both Q&A and content that goes beyond regular Q&A, such as Articles.

Collectives can also grant users specific permissions such as posting Articles within a Collective, recommending answers that are associated with a Collective, and having a user badge that highlights the users associated with the Collective.
