I find it odd that Robert Scobles post "Facebook clones another Google+ feature, keeps Google+ from gaining mass adoption" is not on this list - I know the article is critical, but it's really well written:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/111091089527727420853/posts/MgnJzTyKLE6
Maybe because it's from yesterday?

Otherwise: great stuff. :)
Lots of good reading material on the network we're on!
 
Wow, thank you for including my post. Happy Friday! :D
 
Was hoping you hadn't noticed my initial omission, lol!
 
You're right, haven't noticed the "weekly" part.
 
OK, titled it - not the best title ever, but it'll work!
 
+Rahul Roy I know you put a lot of time and effort into collecting all these great resources in one place for us. Thank you for all your hard work, and much gratitude for the inclusion. Hope you have a great weekend!
 
Cheers - it's something I've had conversations with many Plussers about, and hopefully it will be helpful...
 
+Rahul Roy ace work! May I suggest including the date in the title as this may be helpful for ease of reference of readers in the inevitable reshares over the months ahead for #N00bs!
 
Yeah, I think we need to step out of the comfort zone from time to time if we want to evolve - +Robert Scoble might be down on G+ right now, but in the right way. :)
 
+Rahul Roy What about starting a Page for the best feature requests to make G+ better and only populate it with the best suggestions (no other posts diluting message, no shared circles - just pure feature requests we all want)
Maybe this already exists? +Shamil Weerakoon? I know you've touched on this.
"Help Enhance G+" maybe
 
You can't possibly keep this up week after week +Rahul Roy! :)
Not a top 50 - but I have a feeling if anyone can it's gotta be you.
 
+Rahul Raj thanks for the inclusion! I am delighted that my newbies post has had 58 shares this week! I've taken on-board feedback, adjusted and the version now has the best of all suggestions :)
 
And technically it's a "Top 53" now, lol!
 
+Rahul Roy awesome list. There is great reading material for the weekend. Also thanks alot for adding my post. It's the first time I got a mention like this, feels good :)
 
Thanks for including me...and for giving me a list of things to catch up with over the weekend.
 
Thanks for the include! Great list!
 
wow ... i'm beginning to believe that you are getting no sex whatsoever +Rahul Roy, for two reasons ... first you seem to have a surplus of unused sexual energy that you are trying to work off and second there is no way there's any time left for sex after you compose those lists of yours ... :D ...

this one is amazing as always ... i don't pretend to have read all the posts in it (unlike you, i do have a healthy sex life), but i did read some of them ... also thank you very much for the include ... it is only another example of the high quality of the articles featured here ... ;-) ...

ok, i'm off now to have sex again ... see you at the other side of your next list ... :-P ...
 
+Anita Law I think you deserve inclusion, if for no other reason than for knowing what a "salon" is, other than a place to get your hair done.
 
Wow, great list of posts +Rahul Roy! Thanks for sharing...you've just added more to my 'to-read' list. :)
 
OMG. It takes whole weekend to walk these through ;o) Thanks +Rahul Roy for arranging me some thing to do...
 
Thanks for including two of mine in here +Rahul Roy, and particularly for all the effort you put in keeping up with all these!
 
Thanks everyone for comment, plus one and reshare.
Feel free to tag me in your post or add your post here http://goo.gl/7ddL8
 
wow, thanks so much for including me :+)
 
Excellent post +Ole Olson, just added your post under bonus section ;)
have a great weekend..
 
I know +Chase Mann , you should remove multiplication sign and replace with addition(plus).
Anything multiplied by zero(circle) is zero ;p
 
+Rahul Roy thanks +bud ... taking time to go through your public stream now :+)
