+Jonathan Levin Took me a while to get back to you on this. But here is a sample circle of some cool profiles here on G+.

I was going to share this only with you, but then realized that I should just share this list with everyone! Maybe someone else was hoping to find more interesting people to circle too.

+David Garcia has an awesome blog called "Keep it up David". He posts links to his blog every day on G+. Basically David used to weigh over 400 pounds and now he weighs closer to 230. This blog tells his story. He's also hilarious and has been a good friend of mine since 1993.

+Adam DiLeo is my friend. He started on G+ in October posting about his blog 31 Flavors of Terror, where he reviewed one horror movie a day for a month. Now he posts a bit less frequently, but always shares really good articles. Also a hilarious friend of mine, since 1997.

+Harald Wagener works with me at Google. He is an excellent photographer and posts a lot of great pictures.

+Andy Bohm also works with me at Google. He also posts a lot of great stuff, does a lot of hangouts, and gets a lot of engagements on his posts.

+Christina Trapolino used to post more often, but she started her Circle Sundays back up. You're looking for good people to follow? Look out for Christina's Sunday posts and you'll get quite a collection.

+ZAGAT +Food Network - if you like food stuff these are good pages to follow.

+Tom Anderson the founder of My Space - I think he used to post more interesting stuff before he took up photography. I like his photography and it's fun to watch his progress as he learns new techniques, but I was more interested in the other topics he used to post about.

+Team Coco - Like Conan? Put this page in your circles.

+Jeff Bates works with me at Google. He's a super cool dude and posts fun things every now and then.

+Vic Gundotra is the SVP in charge of G+ and always posts good things. Yes, he does post about Google +, but he also posts a bunch of other interesting things.

+The Huffington Post +WIRED - they post a lot.

+Barack Obama +The White House - good updates, if you are interested. And if your politics lean the other way, all of the Republican candidates have pages too. I follow the Republican candidates too, but more for my entertainment to read all of the crazy people posting comments.

+Google Politics & Elections - great updates on search trends for the election, and general election stats. If you're into that sort of thing.

+Breaking News - good way to get a snippet of what's going on around the world. Sometimes it's a serious international issue. And sometimes it's just sports. But they are pretty good and being the first to know, and then letting you bet the second to know. :)

+Earth , +Moon , +Mercury , +Sun - and I think you can follow pretty much all of the planets. Fascinating stuff. Trust me.

+NASA +Ron Garan +Hubble Space Telescope - if you are interested in outer space stuff, follow Ron (an astronaut who posts a lot of cool pictures and videos) and NASA. I mean - they're NASA. Awesome. One of my friends on here said "If you're not circling NASA, you're doing it wrong". And while you're add it just throw in the Hubble.

+Funny Pictures & Videos - it floods your stream a bit, but the stuff is mostly funny and entertaining. :)

+Google Chrome - this is just one of many google pages. Depending on your level of interest in Google products, you could make a whole circle just with these, including Android, Google +, Google, Google Maps, and a ton more.

+GoPro - they always post a GoPro shot of the day, which is usually pretty cool.



+Tim O'Reilly +Wil Wheaton +Jeri Ryan +Richard Branson - all good stuff, on different topics.

+Detroit Tigers +Detroit Pistons - Detroit sports are my poison, but I think the MLB and NBA have pages for all of their teams.

+Life at Google - this page posts different things about different parts of Google, and often does hangouts with different departments.

+Jarek Klimek - there are tons of great photographers on Google, but Jarek does a great job of aggregating the best of the best into one place .

+The Onion +The Daily Show +The Colbert Report - duh.

+U.S. Department of State - good stuff, if you are interested in that sort of thing. They post often.

AND

to top those off, here is a fabulous crowd sourced doc where people have curated circles for different topics: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ao1OX3UN25EvdHRWR3lwWXQ0a0RhWnFuWml5RnJHdkE#gid=0

Tons of things for everybody there.

If you are looking for Google + to be like facebook, that's fine. It can be, in certain ways. But in a lot of ways it is very different. The things you will find to follow, the way you can organize those you have circled and curate them into different circles, the more public nature of this - it can be very interesting if you give it a chance and find the right content.

Anyway, that's my 2 cents.

Also it looks like +Chris Robinson is doing an awesome project curating musicians on G+. He just shared tons of great circles for all different genres. If you are into music, you should put him in your circles.
 
Whoa - top of the list! Honored, flattered, humbled. :)
