Madjid Boukri3,503Canadian '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 22:05:50487103CC G+

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 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 Beck0So, 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+

Many media outlets look down on comments, and some have killed them off entirely, arguing that they are filled with bad behavior and therefore worthless. But there is value in listening to one’s readers, and social media doesn’t fill that need completely
