Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/2)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca  #sharedcircles #circles #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:30:374321214692CC G+

Lee Edgerton0I've never shared a circle before. Thought I'd share my Social Media circle. It's made up of my own finds and recommendations from others.

Vago Damitio8,775Creative Circle #11 of 12Creative Circle 1 of 11I am so impressed and enthused looking at the MicroVictoryArmy Stream  that I'm going to do something radical. I"m going to share my other circles, invite the members to join MVA, and then I'm going to delete all those circles so I can give more attention here.  I will keep  one circle of people like the +Dalai Lama  and +Richard Branson  who I would love to have join MVA but I don't want to lose track of if they don't. And that's it.  The Micro Victory Army is Victorious in my Circles and if you join - so are you. https://plus.google.com/communities/100245247140773385767  #microvictory  for figuring out how to enjoy G+ and manage my circles better! I'm about to delete you (unless you are in MVA - it's not personal - I still love you)2013-01-13 00:06:09145111CC G+

AJ Durling0This is a bonus circle, and is actually pretty much where I started when I was creating my first circles - Top 500 PlussersIt is the people with the highest number of users - and is actually now only 308 people. When I first collected the Top 500 Plussers on Google+, I spend a lot of time weeding out the people whose posts in which I didn't particularly have an interest (e.g. almost all of the photographers - nothing against people who post photos to G+, it's just me: this is Google+, not Flickr; people who only ever promote themselves - so quite a lot of the pop musicians). The list that is left are people who, I think, actually contribute to the stream. You may find some surprising choices (Dolly Parton?! Actually, yes!). But I hope you enjoy it.I've kept the name Top 500 even though it is a lot fewer than 500. I like the irony... #circleshare   #sharedcircles   #celebrity   #topcircles  2012-10-19 15:06:56307302CC G+

Jason Wells17,834Top 50 Getting Verified Soon (v1)who's getting the CheckOut of the hundreds of millions of folks using Google+, there are currently just 7,240 verified users. I'd like to indulge in a little Google Kremlinology. Specifically, I'm interested in how Google decides who to verify and when to do it. Yes, it's got a lot to do with notoriety, but it's basically a numbers game. Google has verified everyone with millions of followers, celebrity or not... and almost no one with just a few (except some former Google Buzz or Wave users). So there must be a line; pass a certain number of followers and you can be virtually guaranteed a check mark. I wondered, where is that line? And who's approaching it?The people in this circle, that's who.In collaboration with +Chris Macidis, who at my request developed the report I used as the basis of this circle, I present the top 50 people, ranked by follower count, who have not yet been verified. Being in this circle doesn't guarantee you'll be verified today or tomorrow, but mathematically, it's probably coming sometime soon--assuming you are who you claim to be!Fun facts about this circle:- Just 2 people have 1M+ followers but aren't yet verified.- Just 7 more people have 100k+ followers but aren't yet verified.- The person with the median follower count of the top 50 is +Varina Patel, at 57,609. This is a very simple but useful indicator: if you attract 57k followers or so, I think you can reasonably anticipate a checkmark on your profile page sometime soon.Last but not least: please don't take this circle too seriously. Follower count is not even remotely correlated with one's value as a human being. Neither is the oft-coveted Check. We're just having a little fun with the Google+ APIs here… using them to get a peek behind the curtains, and at the same time, showcase some pretty interesting folks that aren't often grouped together.Membership in this circle will change over time. No one gets into this one by asking nicely; you have to meet the criteria. Every now and then, as people move into or out of this circle, I'll reshare it. I'd encourage you to share it too.2012-08-25 20:03:5450671018CC G+
Jason Wells13,970Top 100 Unverified (v1)on the cuspI've always been a little intrigued by the concept of a "verified user." Ostensibly to ensure the true identity of the person behind a profile, it also serves as a validation of notability, social success or even celebrity. At this point in time, almost 6900 Google+ users have the checkmark. And while Google verifies users according to their own criteria, everyone above a certain number of followers is verified. As it happens, right now that certain number is about 588,000.This is I believe a unique list: the top 100 people, ranked by follower count, that are at or below that line. In other words, the people who are just about to get on Google's verification radar. So it ranges from +Maria Popova, with roughly 588k followers, to +Matt Steiner, with about 39k.It's an interesting group of people, predominantly photographers or other visual artists. Some of them are quite good. There's a broad swathe of nationalities represented. Interestingly, most of them are people I haven't seen on G+ before, although there are a few familiar faces. What unites them all is that they're all very close to earning their checkmarks.As they get verified, people will fall out of this circle, so I expect to change often. So I'll reshare this circle periodically with the refreshed top 100 unchecked folks. I encourage you to reshare it too.(Props to +Chris Macidis, my technical collaborator.)2012-07-16 14:58:18100515CC G+
Craig Froehle4,629467 Plussers Well Worth FollowingSome curated recommendations to make your Tuesday a bit more interesting. I kept this circle largely free of celebrities, pages, and organizations, so these should (nearly) all be actual people. Enjoy!By the way, topic-wise, it's a bit of a potpourri, but with emphasis on technology, science, progressive politics, skepticism, and other fascinating things.Note that I don't always agree with everyone in this circle, so don't take this as an endorsement of their ideas...merely that they tend to be thoughtful when presenting them.2012-07-03 14:29:094671718CC 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+

Scott Ayres6,421Saw +Robert Scoble share this circle earlier. Full of bloggers, tech oriented people and etc. All are great Gplusers and will add a ton of value to your stream.2012-04-11 20:35:35500011CC G+
Robert Scoble1,146,151Here are 500 of my favorite Tech Journalists, bloggers, and pundits. I'm sharing this since I am seeing lots of new people coming over and I'm sure they are looking for some great people to circle here. Unfortunately I can't share everyone that I have in this circle (I have 575 in this circle on my screen, but Google+ only lets me share 500 with you). Lots of interesting tech bloggers and journalists here. Hope you enjoy. This is the circle that starts my morning every day.Speaking of Tech News, I'm off to +VMware. They are announcing new Cloud Foundry stuff this morning. So, you'll probably see some tech news from the folks in this circle.2012-04-11 16:01:035005737106CC G+

If you know the G+ Men to Women ratio.... you know there are too few ladies out here so far. Add this circle to balance your stream a bit. There are some very interesting people in here. I left it at 400 to start in case I miss any ladies who want to be added. If I missed you and you would like to be in this circle... let me know. ....this circle includes 1 really cool guy.... the guy all these fantastic Ladies have in common2012-03-16 18:31:504001457CC G+

Susanne Ramharter3,133Fridays are for sharing circlesto the new people who have put me in their circles: many thanks! Some of you I have already had contact with, to the rest, I would like to reciprocate with this circle. It is hand-picked, and contains people who are funny, intelligent, knowledgeable, and engaged.You will find information about social media, google+, as well as cognitive science, books, travel and art, some agitation against encroaching on civil liberties (SOPA, ACTA, censorship - mostly from me ;-) inspirational as well as snarky things, and yes, the occasional cat. But everyone here is friendly and has great things to contribute, so feel free to share the circle if you like.Have fun!2012-03-09 15:46:5631329919CC G+
Andrea Memenas4,752It stinks that I can't share this entire circle (it's up to 605 and G+ only allows you to share up to 500) with you, but 500 smart chicks is better than none. Happy International Women's Day! Please circle these kick-ass females!2012-03-08 23:09:13500405CC G+

Robert Scoble700,661Yes, it's a ghost town of TECH INDUSTRY JOURNALISTS AND BLOGGERS. Pay no attention to anyone from the Wall Street Journal who snuck onto this circle. Yes, this is 500 people, but they are almost all active.2012-02-28 03:05:115005538103CC G+
Susanne Ramharter2,244To the many people who have circled me lately, thank you! Some of you are new to Google+ and looking for interesting people and conversations.My view is that being social is fun, enjoying good photographs is fun, snark is lots of fun.But sometimes I feel the need for a special kind of substance, people who consistantly provide intelligent posts and engagement. That is when I go to this circle.Warning: these are not necessarily the "cool kids" with gazillions of readers. But they regularly provide intelligent, thoughtful and often fun discussions.So if that is what you want, engage!Feel free to share, also, if you know of anyone I could/should add to this circle, please comment, otherwise, enjoy.2012-02-24 20:56:23119314CC G+
