Is adding to Circle the rough equivalent of following on Twitter??

Hi Matt! In answer to your question, yes and no :) Circles are similar to Twitter follows, but they work in a few different ways. I use circles to filter my incoming stream (like Twitter lists). I can choose to "tune in" to any stream/circle (one person might be in a few circles (e.g. educators, friends, my university)).

Circles can also be used when sharing posts -- you can limit who you share with by only sharing with specific circle(s). In practice, I mostly share with Public, so posts are shared with all (and are publicly searchable).

Now I'm looking at Sparks. A saved search/filter of all public "shares" is how I'm seeing it. So I've done one for Moodle & one for London School of Economics

+Matt Lingard I see you tried to add me to a Huddle, but you added the e-mail me not the Google+ me. It's one of the problems with having multiple e-mail accounts and multiple Google accounts to.

And can I turn of the message that pops up everytime telling me "nice share" or whatever it says. It's not very discerning

So G+ sharing etiqutte. I just went to share something and was warned that the original post had only been displayed to a circle and i should be "thoughtful" about who I share with...

I'm still thinking about it...

Yikes, this is a bit fiddly... the share button seems to vary in how it works or more likely I'm not quite getting it yet. Sometimes I have to clcik Share then choose who but sometimes it has automatically picked public for me. Why?
