|Daniel Mihai Popescu||16,828||This is a very special circle I recently created, with a complex range of members, therefore I shall call it The Complex CircleIt is still in testing form, so any activity from your part will be greatly appreciated.You may want to tag your friends, be free to do it; if they also comment here, they will be added to Friends of Friends, a circle i made with your suggestions (it didn't went very well at the time, the friends you tagged weren't really your friends, or worse, they wanted not to be in my circles), maybe three months ago.It is my suggestion to follow +Maximum Circle Sharing because this is the page which will share any circle with you in it and all the friendly circles having me as a member :)Please add it, share it and re-share it. Do it with responsibility, it's for your own good. Don't forget #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle !||2013-10-01 16:33:06||456||67||37||79||CC G+|

In the last 7 days Core Circle has gone from 0 to 250 active members and continues to gain momentum with multiple mentions, shares and ripples across Google Plus. This seriously has the makings of something that is ready to explode!Now, you might be asking, what's next and where do we go from here?!? Great questions!As you now know Core Circle is about creating segmented circles of interest within a circle so that you have the opportunity to REALLY get to know those in the circle. You become and stay active in Core Circle through simple engagement (+1, Sharing & Comments) and living out the 'Give Before You Get' mantra.But, what happens when things start to get big, what about keeping it manageable? Today, I want to introduce you to the next part of Core Circle. Circles In Circles.Circles In Circles creates the strongest way you can connect with other members in a meaningful way. It simplifies the "oh my goodness there as so many members!!!" into a bite sized, "Wow, this is easy to get to know each other!" It also allows room for growth for the larger Core Circle as more Circles In Circles are formed.Now what does this mean for you? Below you will see a list of individuals in 5 separate groups named Pandas, Penguins, Turtles, Squirrels and Whales. If you are part of Core Circle Panda, then I would ask that you follow, share and comment on your group's content first, before you go onto the next Circles In Circles group. I know you are all highly active on google plus, so it might not take you long to go through one group, so feel free to engage on several!Naming Your Circles In CirclesI know that 'Core Circle Panda' is a seriously boring name, so when you see your circle name, please comment below what you might want to name it. Talk about it within your group to come up with something fun, interesting and exciting.Wow, this post is getting long, almost done!Core Circle Member RequestAs a Core Circle Member all I ask is that you:+1 this postFollow other Core Circle members IN your Circles In Circles groupShare this Core Circle with your friends, family, and neighbors.INVITE new members to join your Circles In Circles group.

|Luis Roca||5,477||I've adjusted the Art + Design Distilled Circle with some significant changes, removing a few pages that posted redundant content and a few sharers who — um, we'll simply say it turns out they have an overly broad definition of art when it comes to the nude female. — Several fantastic artists and writers on the visual arts have been added.

|Luis Roca||5,101||Art + Design Distilled on Google+ has been slightly modified. There are one or two additions but will always stay around this size as some profiles may drop off in activity and with that, I'll move them out of the circle while I continue looking for new ones to add. This way when I share it every few weeks, it will always be a circle that consistently provides good work and discussions.Enjoy and Happy Friday everyone.Luis#circleshare #sharedcircles #art #design #graphicdesign ||2013-08-02 14:25:28||58||1||0||4||CC G+|
|Luis Roca||4,937||Art + Design Distilled on Google+ is a dense slice of some of the best artists, curators and active commenters of the visual arts.On Wednesday I posted a small circle I have enjoyed for a long while and asked for help to make it better. A few people came up with great suggestion and circles. Those suggestions led me to thousands of profiles I was reviewing up until early this morning to create this circle.I kept it smaller than most other circle shares but incredibly varied with a focus on quality streams and discussions. There are familiar faces and pages that have been circled by over a million people alongside artists that have been hooped less than five hundred times.This process ended up being far more rewarding than I could have imagined. I never created a circle like this to share and really regret not doing it sooner. I have met so many great creative people and added them to my circles. To all of you who recently circled me: Hello :)Enjoy the great visuals in your streams and Happy Friday everyone.Luis #sharedcircles #sharedcircle #art #design ||2013-07-19 13:22:12||53||2||3||3||CC G+|

|Samantha Villenave||510,146||My 112 of 2012 (Who's in Yours?)Face it, if we're here, on G+, we probably spend a little way too much time on the Internet. I'll be the first to admit that being my case.These are the people whom I have interacted with the most, and have interacted the most with me for the past year. It's a mixed bag of a circle, but I can honestly say that I am very blessed to follow, and know a bit, each and every one of them.In this circle you'll find artists (painters, drawers, sculptors, illustrators and photographers), art lovers, designers, writers, geeks/developers, gamers, hangouters, googlers, and then some. If you received a notification, then yeah, that means you're in it. And I just want to say Happy New Year to each of you. And thanks for the good times. I'm glad to know all of you, and I'm glad that I can even call some of you friends.If you aren't in it, don't worry about that too much. It isn't me, it's google's circle relevancy algorithm that picked these people, according to the time we've spent emailing, chatting, +1ing, commenting, and hangouting. You may want to check your own circles to see who your most relevant people are!Oh, and why not hashtag it #my112of2012 if you do decide to share your own?

|Samantha Villenave||415,621||I call this circle "Artcest".These people are my tribe, my love, the delight of my stream. This circle contains the 99 (plus moi) non-photog artists that I interact the most with, according to Google's algorithm. If you aren't in here, it isn't that I don't adore you, it's just that these peeps and I've got history, interaction, and mutual drooling and conversing over paintings and the like.I can guarantee you that each is a delight to follow. Some are NSFW, c'mon, but you don't care about that, because you know what you want to see in your stream here, it's innovation, beauty, paintings, sculpture, illustration, and mad creative experimentation. Each of these friends share primarily posts concerning art, whether their own and others. Certain among them are, IMHO, at the core of the art community here on G+. They're its central nervous system. They bring the internal into the external, here, on our not so tiny corner of the Interwebz.To be consumed, without moderation. #art #circleshare||2012-10-15 06:55:32||100||61||27||56||CC G+|
|Marc Jansen||26,537||To me, this really is the highest form of flattery on G+Having people plus and share your content is pretty damn cool, but to have someone think highly enough of you to go out of their way and recommend you to others is downright humbling.I have been in circle-shares for many different reasons: from my love of bacon, to my Whovianism, to my proclivity for engaging, just to name a few. In fact, the reasons seem to be as varied as the interests of those who have shared them, and that's rather amazing, if you ask me.All-in-all, I have been in 334 publicly-shared circles since their inception, and I simply wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of the 159* unique people and pages who have given me this vote of confidence by returning the favor. If it weren't for all of you, I'd never have met so many amazing new people over the past year, so... thank you!_For the record, +Amanda Blain belongs here, too, but somehow got dropped in the process of creating the circle! :-(*(A couple profiles appear to have been deactivated since they shared their circles.)||2012-10-03 05:03:14||157||108||11||82||CC G+|

|Abigail Markov||12,495||Meet The G+ Artists #MeetTheGPlusArtists This circle, plus a few, was compiled from the #MeetTheGPlusArtists event yesterday - the favorite artists of Artists and dedicated art lovers alike. I went ahead and compiled this small circle for the sake of ease; for those who want active, working artists who share their work here on G+ but are less inclined to go through the entire tag stream and add them individually.In addition to the 39 artists suggested, I have included three community pages that are central to the quickly-growing traditional arts community here on G+ for those of you who want to continue to find the best of art on G+, the emerging artists, and who want a deeper look into what goes into the art shared here: +G+ with Brushes , +Friday Art Critique and +Art+Talk.+G+ with Brushes is the champion of the Traditional Artists here on G+, managed by +Terrill Welch and +Lena Levin as the starting point for anyone new to G+ who wants to find some of the best art on G+. These two artists scour the active arts community searching for the best of traditional art here. Whether you want more gorgeous art in your stream, or you are an artist and wish to know more, circle +G+ with Brushes and let them know you have. They are always looking for more artists, and more amazing art.For those of you who are artists, who love art, who want to learn more about art, or who want to see the thought and work that goes into a piece of art, +Friday Art Critique belongs in your circles. A long-running weekly event here on G+, +Friday Art Critique is the brain child of +Max Rubenacker and ss where artists of all walks (from traditional to photographic to digital) submit work for critique and evaluation to their peers, and to the supporting fine arts community.

They are, for the most part, the people who have shared circles that included me, who have given me a shoulder to lean on when the going gets tough, who have shown me different ways of thinking, who have given of themselves so freely and allowed me to be part of their worlds too.Thanks to you all for making my G+ feel like home. +Shared Circles on G+ +CircleCount +The Best Circles on Google+ +Public Circles||2012-09-20 19:12:52||101||55||2||36||CC G+|

Sorry! :)At nearly 1000, my art circle is bursting at the seams. It's too big to share on it's own anymore, so I thought I'd break it down into several smaller circles, to share over a period of days.These people fill my streams with visual imagery, sometimes beautiful, experimental, evocative... each one has a unique perspective and practice. Most of these people are painters, drawers, illustrators, sculptors, etc. (I generally keep my photogs in a separate circle, with a few exceptions, for good measure. So yes, this circle is a different beast.)The desire to connect with other artists is what brought me to G+, and it is a huge part of why I am still here.**************************************************************************A note about this circle, and my sharing it.Every time I share a circle, I get a backlash of anger from people that are not in it. Honestly, it is to the point that I rarely share circles.Please know that this circle is not all of the artists that you should be following here on Google+, it is simply the artists that I follow. I have chosen them for personal reasons, and enjoy following each of them. I am sharing them because I believe that you may also enjoy following them.This circle reflects my choices, of whom to follow, please be respectful of that. If you are an artist, and not in my circles, please feel free to say hi and let me know in the comments, so that I can mosey on over to your profile and see your work! #art #creativity #sharedcircles||2012-08-20 15:36:15||79||25||1||16||CC G+|

|Meilani MacDonald||2,935||Small Business circle 2 of 2Hello small business peeps! I'm a small biz person and naturally I want to connect with other small biz owners. I really feel we all have so much to share with each other and to learn from one another as we navigate this world called Google+ that provides us with so many great tools and resources to support our small biz efforts. I also think it's a good thing to support each other, and lift each other up as we work towards our goals. So I've been collecting small biz people and shared small biz & entrepreneurs circles, because those are the people I most want in my own circles, to follow, to connect with, and to support. I have 700+ small bizzes in my circle, so I've split it into two circles to share with you. This is #2 of the 2. Let's hear it for small business!Btw, speaking of supporting small bizzes, I host a TGIF Biz Networking Hangout every Friday at 4pm pst, now a Hangout on Air. It is a chance to give yourself and your biz a little promo, and I feature special guests who are small biz owners and who have all kinds of good advice and info to share with other small biz owners. Please check my profile for more info or to watch last Friday's episode, where we talked about QR codes and great ideas for how to use them, and also talked about the value of keeping content fresh on your blogs and web sites, and when and why to blog, or not to blog. #smallbusiness #entrepreneur #sharedcircles +CircleCount +Shared Circles Shared a Circle with You +Shared a Circle with you||2012-05-28 18:24:39||330||21||13||18||CC G+|
|Rob Gordon||22,157||*Entrepreneurs, Self-Employed & Small Business OwnersUPDATED SHARED CIRCLE: Part 1 of 2: A through L (by last name).Link to Part (M-Z): http://goo.gl/0Fcg1Link to Supplemental 1: http://goo.gl/AXXrWLink to Supplemental 2: http://goo.gl/TZKKeLike to Supplemental 3: http://goo.gl/3x6hINOTE: This circle is no longer maintained in its present form but is still a good place to start if you are looking for entrepreneurs to follow and connect with here. It has mostly been replace with a Google+ community of the same name that you can find at http://goo.gl/ejG9P**********************This is the most recent update to the popular "entrepreneurs" circle that posted a few months ago. As you can see, it has gotten bigger than 500 people so I have had to split it alphabetically into two parts. These two circles includes the self employed, small business owners, independent contractors, small startup companies and pretty much anyone trying to make it outside of the traditional economy.This is different from the other business circles of this type in that it doesn't include too many of the "celebrity entrepreneurs" and instead has mostly people with their own business or venture. There are more than 800 people here, but this has been reviewed extensively since it was last published -lots of fantastic new people have been added, and some have been dropped - mostly because they don't interact much. The end result is a circle of really awesome business people who actively interact with others here and have a small business or entreprenueral mindset.This is a really diverse group and includes entrepreneurs of all stripes - some have well established ventures and are wildly successful, others are just getting started and haven't made it yet. As can be expected, it is a little tech heavy, but represents most industries and many different types of business. There are even a handful of people here who have traditional jobs, but seem to have an interest in small business issues and always seem welcome to help entrepreneurial efforts. The people in these circles post all manner of things - not just business, but all are smart and interesting people so I recommend that you check this out.I do want to add the disclaimer that this is in no way "definitive" - there are millions of entrepreneurs on Google+ and this is just a tiny fraction of them - the ones I have curated. It seems that about two seconds after I publish this I always remember someone I should have included so just me know if you think you should be here. I republish this periodically and generally add everyone who comments on the post.As with all circles of this size I would use some discretion in adding this - either update your existing circle, pick and choose the ones you like or use these as a trial circles - whatever works for you. I'm not even sure Google will let you add all this many names at once so you may have to come back if you want to add all of them. The technology for this is not perfect, but I am trying to do my part to help build a highly interconnected community of entrepreneurs here on Google+.I hope you find the people in this circle interesting.RobReshares welcome and appreciatedIMPORTANT: You don't want to follow people based on where their last name fits in the alphabit do you? Make sure you also take a look at the second part of this list:LINK TO PART II (M-Z):||2012-04-18 18:49:23||440||119||71||66||CC G+|
|P E Sharpe||19,435||You Turn Me OnThis is my happy little constantly evolving circle of sapiosexual delights. Formerly a circle in which I shared folks who like smart folks, it's now a circle comprising people who post things that excite and arouse me for one reason or another. I've previously explained the root source for the prefix sapio ; here it is again, but from wikipedia this time.The word sapience is derived from the Latin sapientia, meaning "wisdom". Related to this word is the Latin verb sapere, meaning "to taste, to be wise, to know"; the present participle of sapere forms part of Homo sapiens, the Latin binomial nomenclature created by Carolus Linnaeus to describe the human species. Linnaeus had originally given humans the species name of diurnus, meaning man of the day... he later decided that the dominating feature of humans was wisdom, hence application of the name sapiens. His chosen biological name was intended to emphasize man's uniqueness and separation from the rest of the animal kingdom..+Shared Circles on G+ +Sapiosexual +Public Circles +The Best Circles on Google+||2012-03-28 22:10:47||122||34||13||23||CC G+|
|Marc Jansen||17,871||Sharing the LoveI freely admit that +Bearman Cartoons came up with this idea first (Hell, I'd better own up to that, considering that I publicly proclaimed my desire to steal borrow this idea on his thread!)This circle is made up of all of the people who've included me in very nearly 150 publicly-shared circles, as captured by +CircleCount.com.There are, or course, a lot of the Usual Suspects here, people like +Peter G McDermott , +Michael Anderson, +stephanie wanamaker , and +Eoghann Irving.What I found most enlightening is that fact that I actually found a handful of names that I didn't recognize here. People who have apparently taken some level interest in me without me even realizing it. People like +Fred Wierda, +Nate Smith, +tam frager, and +Zach Harper, to name a few.I just wanted to follow +Bearman Cartoons lead and thank each of these people and to repay the favor. THIS JUST IN: It seems that I missed +Shay Dougan and +Kevin Medeiros when I put this together - my apologies to both of you for the oversight!(Oh, and lest anyone cares to give me a hard time for adding myself, +CircleCount tells me that I somehow managed to share myself out at least once... ;-) )||2012-03-24 03:37:20||75||7||1||7||CC G+|

I have tried to include only those who post, though no guarantees.If I left you out and you think you belong in my next incarnation of this circle, please be sure to let me know in the comments.

This is great bill, Thanks for writing this. A couple of thoughts:makes me realize that my own current project needs another 6 months of work. Also that talk that I reviewed for Hyperallergic recently: it seems that Kentridge was recycling a lot of stuff from previous projects like this one. It was a work in progress but I kind of hope he does something else for the Schubert project. Anyway I'm glad you got to see this, and I hope I can too sometime
