first thank you for all the great improvements to G+ and I think you (we) all deserve a nice christmas break. If you are still looking for additional ideas for 2012
- here is one
I started a small project +Deutsche Google+ Seiten
where I collect German Google+ Pages and share them back to the community. As sharing a circle only shares the pages which I have at this specific moment in a circle this unfortunately results in the need to re-share again and again as this circles are growing.I really would like to see in future a small configuration enhancement for circles which allows to make them either READ or WRITE or both together.
READ should allow other people to see which PERSONS or PAGES I have in this circle and having the opportunity to either copy a complete circle into their own environment or select specifig PERSONS or PAGES from my circle and add them to their own circles.
WRITE should allow not only to follow a PERSON or a PAGE but directly to subscribe to a specific circle of this PERSON or PAGE.
As an example if e.g. Porsche would offer different circles for Porsche 911 and Porsche Panamera I would be able to subscribe exactly to those circles of Porsche in which I am really interested in.
With today's functionality I can only follow Porsche and they need to put me in the right circle, without knowing to much about me (except that they can start reading my profile and my posts).
For both READ and WRITE should be configurable either for circles, extended circles or public in the standard way you offering already.
A small extra for the owner of the page would be the possibility to have a small restriction in the WRITE configuration which allows other people to subscribe but shows to me as the owner, who has subscribed and asks me to Accept that subscription. This would still give full control to the owner of the page.
People I have blocked should not have access to my circles anyway.
I am convinced, that such an enhancement to the use of circles would be extremely beneficial for all Google+ users and especially for G+ pages.
I would be happy, if you could have a look to this proposal and I would be even more happy to receive some kind of information back from Google+ if you are already thinking about such enhancements.
