Hugo van der Merwe450My Pages circleMy G+ Home stream is pretty overwhelming, it would not be possible to read everything if I hadn't significantly dialled down some circles. I can and do read everything in my "Friends" circle, not too hard as many people aren't very active. ;) (I also limit my "Friends" circle to fewer than 100 people: I have an Acquaintances circle dialled down to the recommended "most posts", rather than "every post").A large portion of my Home stream consists of news-related posts from pages, with a good dose of geek and personal interests mixed in. I have a couple of non-overlapping circles that I use specifically for pages. A "Google Pages" circle contains, you guessed it, a whole bunch of Google pages. I also have a plain "Pages" circle which doesn't contain Google pages. In fact, here I'm sharing my "Pages" circle, for what it's worth. It is not particularly well curated, it's a mixed-value bag, but some of the pages in this circle are highly recommended! ;) What are your favourite pages?(BTW my pages circles are dialled down to one notch above zero, i.e.: "Show some posts from Pages in your Home stream".)2012-11-08 21:45:1932300CC G+

Rupert Wood1,791Dear Aunty Beeb.......please stop wasting your time on playing farmville promoting Facebook, and spend a little time trying to engage with G+ users. I know budget constraints mean you can't afford to throw money at every new social media. but surely you can't afford to ignore Google+ so thoroughly that you don't even provide a Share on G+ button on your pages? There are some pages here that are making a little effort, even if that largely is just copying the exact same copy and link as used in a tweet. A lot of these pages appear to have been verified, though just as many seem to ave simply been grabbed and no effort to include any content.Meanwhile, if you feel the BBC should be making a bit of an effort to engage on G+, or even provide G+ share buttons on their pages, you may want to circle +BBC - No Google Plus button? to show your support for getting the BBC supporting G+ users.2012-09-21 14:58:3921017CC G+
Dolidh Young (Eileen)267,280I was recently asked what kind of pages I find myself following.

Three charities very close to my heart. Between them, I've had family helped and we adopted a dog from Dogs Trust.Oh yeah - and +TED  - if you've never watched their inspiring videos, I absolutely encourage you to.

Mumsnet - a leading UK site for parents - and the Canadian tax authority have both announced they have had data stolen by hackers exploiting the Heartbleed bug. http://bbc.in/1gWtR1t

Mumsnet - which says it has 1.5 million registered members - says that it believes that the cyber thieves may have obtained passwords and personal messages before it patched its site. "The worst case scenario is that the data of every Mumsnet user account was accessed," the site says in a statement.

The Canada Revenue Agency says that 900 people's social insurance numbers have been stolen.

Currently doctors treating cancer have two main approaches - bombard the tumour with drugs and radiotherapy or cut it out. The second option is very common but not always successful - because it is often also impossible to tell where the tumour ends and healthy tissue begins. But a new goggle technology being developed in the US lets surgeons "see" which cells are cancerous (as pictured) and which are healthy, increasing the chances that they will be able remove all cancer cells in one operation http://bbc.in/1kLFccH
