Madjid Boukri2,835Canadian 'Polar' Circle I  (Polar Circle II next)I got too many Canadians now in my Canadian Polar circle and had to do some ... cleaning. Some people or pages here are not very active but I added all 'Canadians' without any restriction. I had to split in two circle because of the 500 Google share limit.

David Waddington2,952Sharing 500 Canadians circle. This circle is bigger and I tried to change it so that it was only 500 but when you delete someone from circle it deletes them from all circles. Really weird. I will share part 2 tomorrow but I honestly don't know who of the 668 are not included.If someone can help me fix this issue it would be appreciated because I would like to be able to include everyone that I can.If you are Canadian or living in Canada and not included in this circle leave a comment and I will make sure you are added to part 2.+Amanda Blain perhaps there are some Canadians in this circle that were not in the one you shared.Oh, for those of you that haven't filled out your profile page yet it is a good idea to do so. Stating in your profile the things that interest you will increase the possibility of you being added to circles. Not everyone adds people because they are Canadian.2012-10-15 00:26:015011506CC G+

If your comment gets plus 1'd by me then you have been added. I will share this circle again at a later date with new additions.I also have a circle for users in Edmonton. If you are in Edmonton and wish to be added just note in your comment that you are in Edmonton.  I have added quite a few users from Edmonton in the last while. One thing I have noticed is many haven't filled out their profile. If you wish to have people follow you it's a good idea to fill out a profile and put it in why people might be interested in following you.Lets grow our circles!  :) #circleshare #circles #circlesharing #circleshared  2012-07-16 00:35:063512004CC G+

Kyle Beck66So, I know a lot of my friends who have joined +Google+ wonder "What's the point? I have a Facebook." Well that comparison was flawed from the beginning, although many people made it while trying to describe G+. There are similarities, but one of my favorite features in G+ has been the ability to share Circles with others. In fact I'm not sure I would see the point if I hadn't been shared this very circle by +Robert Scoble (IIRC) early on in my G+ membership. It has proven an invaluable source of up-to-the-minute Tech News over the past year and really showed me how G+ is very different from FB.See, when you visit FB the information you receive is solely from your family and real-life acquaintances. This can be great for keeping up with people you don't see regularly, etc., but it is very hard to reach out to new people who share your interests through FB. Not so on G+. You can create and share groups of friends and pages (Circles) to organize your social interests. In effect, this creates dynamic communities where you can choose who you interact with.Anyways, I hope you will consider adding this Circle, packed full of Tech Enthusiasts. If you don't really use G+ or wonder what the point is, that goes double for you!2012-06-30 00:28:364881003CC G+

Alister Macintyre7,115Some people appear to be well informed on many topics, and like to share what they have figured out.  Here is a circle of prolific writers about tech topics.  You might want to put some of them in separate circles, to avoid being washed away in combination streams into a roaring torrent of information.2012-06-09 23:29:01244010CC G+

Everyone complains about how social media is full of hoaxes and inaccuracies in the aftermath of a breaking-news event like the shooting down of Malaysian Flight MH17, but we all have the ability to help fact-check the news. Here are some resources to help do so

Hyperlocal news has attracted — and ultimately disappointed — hundreds of entrepreneurs over the years, including the CEO of AOL, but that hasn’t stopped former Project Thunderdome head Jim Brady or the founders of Brooklyn’s Corner Media from betting on their success
