The whole "Drag and drop" to circles is too much of a pointless exercise. Sorry.

- I'm with +Robert Singers - and it's easy!Jul 9, 2011
- I just created a circle for people who don't like circles!Jul 9, 2011
- I agree it's time consuming. I used Diaspora's 'Aspects' concept, which is the same as circles, and it has the same problem. At first it seemed good to micromanage relationships into groups but then it became a time sink moving things around to get things 'just right'. Eventually I just settled with two circles - People I know and people I don't (ie. followers, people to follow, etc).Jul 10, 2011
- Dave Winer has an interesting post about this aspect of circles http://scripting.com/stories/2011/07/01/whyGooglesCirclesAreLikely.htmlJul 10, 2011
- I would also say the whole "UI" experience in my usage has been horrible, with long delays, uncertain behavior, and before you ask, I tried it in Chrome, Firefox and IE, pretty crappy performance in all threeJul 10, 2011
- I was impressed with the drag and drop at first, but after dragging and dropping 5 people into appropriate circles it became meh. I just couldn't be bothered doing it. Don't get me wrong, I love the layout and idea of organised circles. It's all neat and user friendly, but tedious. Felt like I had just gotten back from the supermarket and I was putting away the shopping.
Maybe if they added an achievement ala XboxLive for every 100 or so contacts/people/bots you organised into circles it might give me the incentive. Not that I have many to organise.
Whenever I log in anyway I'm clicking on the suggestions near the top right and adding my contact list to circles via that.
G+ circles when I can finally be bothered.Jul 11, 2011
