|Madjid Boukri||0||Canadian 'Polar' Circle I (Polar Circle II next)I started collecting Canadians a few weeks after the start of Google plus. There are now thousands of them and I had to split my Canadian Polar Circle in two because of the 500 Google share limit. Some people or pages here are not very active, many did not even circle me back, but I added all 'Canadians' without any restriction. This may change because carrying 900 people in circles makes you hit the 5000? limit very quick and I had to jettison some low posting G+ users.I will update the *Google+ Shared Circles" http://bit.ly/KxclRuHuge database of circles created by Chris Porter and they will stay there until the planet gets fully warmed up and transformed in a red hot burning rock. there will be no more Polar anything!||2013-03-10 22:05:50||487||1||0||3||CC G+|

|Kyle Beck||162||So, 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 00:28:36||488||10||0||3||CC G+|
