We have reached before some days 500 Facebook fans and as already mentioned we want to celebrate the milestone of reaching 1,000 fans.
As soon as we reach 1,000 fans, we will feature one of the first 1,000 fans and the 1,000th fan on our startpage. You will be a whole month here:
Here you can find our Facebook page.
This section on the startpage will also be changed in the coming days, so that you will be at the top of the Cream of the Crop. You don’t know what this means? Stay tuned, we’ll explain it as soon as this new section is launched
Our Facebook page has reached the next milestone: 500 facebook fans
Maybe “500″ looks like a small number, but: it’s a Facebook page for a Google+ project
We want to say thank you to each one of our Facebook fans and want to pick out the 500th: Piyapong pomz (@CircleCount) from Thailand.
The next facebook milestone is set and we are going to double this number.
Stay tuned, since we will prepare something very special for this date!
Today Olaf Bathke has written a very nice (german) article about Google+ and the phenomenon that more and more photographers are entering the rankings.
Olaf Bathke Blog
It’s an interesting article for photographers on how to handle the best social media, but also for non-photographers (like me) to see how they are using social media.
We are proud that Olaf has used CircleCount.com to get some analysis on the Google+ data. Thank you Olaf for mentioning and linking to our project!
The follower numbers are a not the best measure for the quality of what people are posting. That’s what we’ve heard of some of our visitors and this is absolutely true.
Our follower ranking is not mentioned as a quality ranking but more as (what it really is) a quantity ranking.
Today we’ve launched a new ranking: The popular persons at Google+
The most popular persons at Google+
You will find in this ranking the persons getting the most comments, +1 or reshares per posting. Only the postings of the last 4 weeks are taken into account, so you won’t see here someone who have posted something very interesting before some months. For example, in the moment you won’t find Jake Gross in this ranking, although he had a posting that was shared more than 10,000 times!
You can filter this ranking (as usual at CircleCount.com) by gender and/or country. Check out for example:
Tomorrow CircleCount.com is getting 3 months old and we have collected a lot of numbers in this short time. From the beginning we have shown you your follower numbers in your profile page at CircleCount.com as a chart:
Now, the most of the profiles have a lot of numbers to show and therefore from today on we will show you an additional table with the follower numbers of each day we have tracked:
Thanks to Claudia Brunen for this interesting chart (check here the background of the chart).
Yes, the title is very strange, but let me explain it
Today Andreas Vichr has written about the new nr. 1 in Germany. Klaus Herrmann has passed Sascha Lobo in the german ranking. He also writes about Google+ being the new platform for photographers.
Andreas Vichr created a nice picture showing the top german photographers including their follower charts. And that was how the idea was born to add these charts in our statistic page with the Follower History of the Top 10.

You can open this statistic gender- and/or country-specific, some examples:
Now it’s your turn!
Find some interesting facts at CircleCount.com and post about it in Google+.
Today we’ve made a small change to the +1 button and you are now able to share your follower history with only a few clicks.
You just have to open your profile in CircleCount.com (you can use this link) and click on the +1 button right next to your name (blue circle):
Share your follower history
As you can see in the red circle your follower history is directly choosen as thumbnail.
What do you think?
Is that better or worse than the profile image we used before?
Today we proudly present you the new design of CircleCount.com!
The new design of CircleCount.com
Maybe you already know this fact: CircleCount.com was started (and “designed”) from a developer of everygain.
After we have seen a lot of traffic and great feedback regarding the functionality of CircleCount.com we started to work with our designer on a new design for the website.
art oflutz has worked hard to create our new design. You can (and should!) check his great portfolio at http://www.artoflutz.com/.
We like the new design!
What’s about you? Any feedback is welcome!
PS: You can find some screenshots of the old design here.
Google+ Indonesia at salingsilang.com
Rahadian P. Paramita has written a nice analysis of the Indonesian people at Google+.
He describes the gender contribution for Indonesia, where there are only around 20% women.
The interesting part he has found at CircleCount.com is that in the Top 5 of the most followed people in Indonesia there are 4 women and at the same time in the Top 5 of the most following people in Indonesia there are only men.
That’s very interesting since it’s an indicator on how the two gender are using Google+.
Thank you Rahadian for this detailed analysis!
Do you know the world map at CircleCount.com?
The most followed persons in Google+
Here you can find the global Top 100 (or 1,000) people on a map. You can also set a filter for a country and/or a gender and get a specific map:
The most followed US-Ladies in Google+
We are asked from time to time, why someone is not on this map or in the rankings of a specific country. That’s quite easy when you know which informations are available for CircleCount.com.
We can identify your country only if you have set a location as public in your Google+ profile. You can check this with the following steps:
Open your profile in Google+ and click on the button “Edit Profile” (or just click here):
Click on the map or on the label “Places lived“:
Type in the name of the city where you are living or the name of the country. Take care, that you have choosen “Anyone on the web” and click once on the green pin so that it get blue. The blue pin shows your current location:
Click on the button “Save” and then on the button “Done editing“. That’s all.
Afterwards you just have to open your profile at CircleCount.com (you can also use directly this link) and reload this page, so that your location is updated at CircleCount.com.
PS: Thank you Mark for supporting us making the screenshots
