I feel like circles is the most important feature of Google+. Circles are like your real life cliques that you had back in High School. In my case I created a Gaming, Hip Hop Heads, Sports, Family, Cool Family, Co Workers, Foodies, and Strictly Business. A problem I had with Facebook would be certain content I wanted to share would be inappropriate for a certain group of friends. With circles, you can pick which circles to receive the content you post. Here’s an example. My sister hates seeing me post about video games on Facebook. So instead of flooding her feed with video game related posts, I can post all my gaming related content to my Google+ Gaming circle. My content would be relevant to that circle and might get more interaction then it would on Facebook.
