Google+ is not Facebook. If you are adding people into your Circles that don't know or never will know, you are doing it wrong.

Google's own research shows that people in their real life social networks tend to have 4 to 6 groups or "circles" with between 2 to 10 people in those groups. The tools that Google has provided in Google+ are really meant to service real life connections.

I am not saying that the internet doesn't afford new ways to interact and new types of relationships, but Circles are specifically meant to share with a specific set of people and, likely, people that you know.

Sharing publicly in Google+ makes little to no sense, despite the fact that Googlers seems to be doing it themselves. Twitter is for public sharing, or Buzz, or a blog or website.

Following a bunch of folks on Google+ or throwing them into Circles is not going to give a positive experience. Ask Robert Scoble. The tools in Google+ are meant more to service real world connections in a virtual space not to service all your virtual relationships in one interface.

Broken magic, dammit.
Well here's the unshortened link while I figure out what went wrong with the mojo
https://profiles.google.com/u/0/11711...

*edit* right, http://gplus.to/keyboardcouch should work

aldenoneil | 1000 comments Sword and Laser is now my largest circle, by far.

Make it count, people!


message 21: by Jeffrey (new)

Jeffrey (jwhitsitt) | 0 comments I haven't been invited yet even though I am a heavy Google user.

I read on lifehacker that if an invitee added a non-invitee to one of thie circles the non-invitee would get an invite.

If someone is willing to try it, my address is jswhitsitt@gmail.com

Thanks, Jeff


message 23: by Vance (new)

Vance | 362 comments Oh, sorry for the duplicate invite, Jeff! I didn't see the profile link until after I sent the invitation!


message 26: by Lepton (new)

Lepton | 176 comments Just like to point out that this (gplus.to) is not a Google product. It's an unofficial shortener, just like plus.ly. I have no idea if there could be any privacy and security repercussions from offering a direct link to your page to a third party.


message 27: by Paul (new)

Paul Kelly (ptekelly) | 206 comments Possibly - however profiles are public at the moment so it is findable in most cases

So dude, are you linked up to some of the other S&Lers. How do we circle you then?

Al | 159 comments I don't see where my gplus.to url is so https://plus.google.com/u/0/110193882...
