    • Notice the top navigation bar of my homepage, do you see how the order of my circles determines that sequence of tabs (grey navigation bar above the circles)? The first three circles are visible following All, while the others fall under More. Let’s say I want INeLearn to appear in my navigation bar rather than under More. I can just click and drag to rearrange my circles so that it is one of top three circles and is visible for quick selection. By clicking on a circle on the navigation bar, I sort my stream so that I only see posts from people and pages in that circle.
    • Creating circles is basically a matter of grouping people and pages. There are two ways to do this. The first is from the People tab in Google+. This video gives a great 1 minute demo.

  • You can also add people or pages to your Circles from their profile with one or two clicks. Below are the two methods. The first, a shortcut method, has you hover over someone’s avatar or name in G+. The second, dark background, is from clicking to open their full profile. A second click will let you add them to your circles.

  • You can share your circles with others.
  • You can add up to 5,000 profiles and pages across all of your circles, so eventually you’ll need to be selective.
  • There is a daily limit for how many people and pages you can add to your circles. If you reach the limit, just wait a day to add more people or pages.
