|Hugo van der Merwe||920||My 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 21:45:19||32||3||0||0||CC G+|

|Rupert Wood||5,538||Dear 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 14:58:39||21||0||1||7||CC G+|
|Dolidh Young (Eileen)||508,390||I was recently asked what kind of pages I find myself following. The answer is that really it's a fairly small circle, compared to the nearing 3 and a half thousand people I follow.So here it is... My pages circle... filled with all sorts of stuff, from Chrome and hangout apps, charities, chocolate (yes, lots of chocolate - +Cadbury UK share a lot!) and news.There's a special wee charities section for +Macmillan Cancer Support,+Marie Curie Cancer Care and +Dogs Trust... 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.

The asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs may have catapulted life to #Mars and the moons of #Jupiter, US researchers say: http://bbc.in/18BoAJv
They calculated how many Earth rocks big enough to shelter life were ejected by asteroids in the last 3.5bn years.
The Chicxulub impact was strong enough to fire chunks of debris all the way to Europa, they say.

A #supervolcano underneath #Yellowstone National Park is far larger than was previously thought, US scientists say: http://bbc.in/1bxnJgr
The magma chamber is about two and a half times bigger than earlier estimates suggested.
If it were to blow today, the consequences would be catastrophic.
The last major eruption was 640,000 years ago and sent ash across the whole of North America, affecting the planet's climate.

Spectacular images of the Sun have been released by Nasa: http://bbc.in/1bVIkO6
They show the region between the surface and the outer layers, where temperatures reach 2,000,000 degrees celsius.
It's hoped the observations of storms and flares will help to better understand "space weather", as mission scientist Scott McIntosh explains in our video.

More than 150 cubic km of ice is being dumped into the sea in that area each year, new data from Europe's Cryosat spacecraft suggests.

Aldi's Medion Lifetab has a 7in (18cm) screen, uses the Android operating system and cost just under £80 ($130).
Are low-cost tablets going to become increasingly popular?

"The stakes could not be higher." http://bbc.in/1bvtlst
Leading global technology firms have called for "wide-scale changes" to US government surveillance. Eight firms, Google, Apple, Facebook, Twitter, AOL, Microsoft, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have formed an alliance called Reform Government Surveillance Group.
Microsoft's executive vice president Brad Smith and Kent Walker, who is senior vice president at Google, spoke to BBC Radio 4's Today Programme. Why did Kent Walker think this was a moment of great importance? http://bbc.in/19bjwzs

Afghanistan's ring road is a symbol of the country's efforts to build a prosperous, unified country. Completing the highway has been a priority for the international coalition, hoping to connect people and places. http://bbc.in/1jzVuSs
As foreign troops prepare to leave by the end of 2014, reporters from the BBC Afghan Service travelled along the 3,360km (2,100-mile) road to see whether these ambitions have been fulfilled.
