One of the requests I get most often on Google Plus is for me to stop sending notifications about new posts. First I have to say, I am not intentionally sending anyone new post notifications. Usually these notifications are requested when someone signs up for or subscribes to a collections.
How to turn off G+ collection notifications
You can quit getting notifications by going to the collection you want to stop the notifications from and clicking on the bell icon. That should do it.
If you are in an android phone you can also go into your settings and toggle notification from on to off.
How to turn off Google Plus collection notifications in three easy steps.

When doing this post I noticed that Google has improved the notification opt in message on my Chromebook. I don’t remember exactly what it used to be like, but I do remember that it was very easy to accidentally click the Get Notifications popover right after subscribing to a new collection. At least on my Chromebook the message is now moved away from the follow button. I have accidentally subscribed to notification several time on the Chromebook and I’m much more familiar with the G+ interface than most people.
The Get Notifications popover is still over the button on my desktop. But the larger screen makes it less likely that you will accidentally click the subscription popover.
