Google Plus: Understanding Circles

gpluslogoPeople tend to be confused about circles on G+.

The concept is really pretty simple:

  • A G+ user can have any number of circles.
  • When you put people in a circle, their public posts appear in your stream.
  • You can also use circles to filter your stream. For example, view only the posts made by people in a specific circle.
  • User can choose to make a non-public post that's visible only to people in specific circles.
  • You can add as many people as you like to your circles, and remove them when they get annoying. In other words, what you see on G+ is completely up to you.

That's it. To keep it simple, you can easily get by with only one circle.
