kongaloosh has been publishing collection posts on kongaloosh.com since 2015/07/25. Collections are responses to multiple posts on the site. So, an album of pictures would merely be in-response-to many image posts. Example:
To better format albums has also been publishing collections of images, or albums, since since 2016/08/1. Albums are collections of images with text associated with sub-groups of images.

Foursquare allows users to create lists of related venues, then they have a 'best of' which I suppose is a collection of collections
Collections can change over time but typically don't change often. Changes to collections typically consist of additions, rarely is something removed from a collection. Things may be added to the collection in a specific location within the collection, since the order of the items in the collection is significant.
Changes might be reflected by update posts, e.g. the photos that have been added to a set or notification of a correction to a post.
Different from a feed
Feeds are typically automatically-generated sets of date-ordered posts where the set changes often, new posts showing up at the top of the feed, and old posts dropping off.
A pull request post could be modeled as a collection post of edit posts of individual files.
