One of the defining features Google Plus has established to differentiate itself from Facebook is â€œcircles.â€ In Facebook when you update your status itâ€™s shared with your entire community. Circles allow users to communicate directly to a specific group within their Google Plus network. Think of circles as a Mini-Network within your network that allows you to speak to and engage directly with a smaller group of people. Thereâ€™s a drag and drop feature that allows you to add people to a specific circle or network (i.e. family, friends, followers, gurus). You can also listen to the content stream of your circles.
