The About Me Cirlces - Project

You list suggested circles on your ABOUT PAGE
People will be more apt to add you to these circles
Through the suggestions they will learn more about you.

Which circles would you most likely be found in?
Organize them in the following levels 1-3: Suggestion Only
1. For Sure.
2. If you have it.
3. Technically? Yes.

1. For sure add me to these circles.
--Everyone following me should have this circle.
--They are common circles and I talk about this subject frequently
(or I live in this location)

2. If you have this circle you should add me to this circle.
--If you don't have this circle you should consider creating it.
--But if not it's not a huge loss.

3. These circles also define me but are not my most frequent posts.
These are also some of my other hobbies of interest.
--You might not add me to these circles because you don't have this circle or because I am not an expert in this field.
--I will not be offended if I'm not in this circle


Check my own about section to see my example (or comments below)

Do a search for #AboutMeCircles to see what other people have chosen to do.
This project was started the evening of the 10th of October 2011

Inspired in part by the Public Circles project.
(where you edit the about section to put users you highly recommend.)


When you do it yourself don't forget to link back to this post - "The About Me Circles Project Indtroduction" - (So others know what to do.)

When you edit your ABOUT also do a post and write "#AboutMeCircles"

Very helpful, thank you. Now I have to think of what circles to suggest to the visitors.
That was WAY harder than it should have been!
Added to my profile. We should send this as feedback to have a way to create lists or select from existing ones which you think you are suited for etc.
This is helpful - thanks. :)

I had spent some time trying to come up with a better way to handle the About section and this is nice expansion on my ideas. Hopefully others will at least do something like this because it's hard to manage circles without information.

Of course, it will take me a little time to get mine updated since I don't lack for interests.
I like this idea. Right now, the search isn't bringing up any About profiles, but this would be a good thing for Google to utilize.
Excellent Idea! Its difficult to know why someone has circled you but if they filled in there about section like this I would now what circles to then circle them back under.
Thanks for the great ideas! The main reason I like G+ is so that I may meet and learn from new people, not just in photography, but many subjects. This is a definite work to improve G+!
Nice idea, but seems a bit too sophisticated esp. when I'm trying to categorise my own interests. Also, due to my observations, 99% of people don't read the info in about sections at all! Some time ago, I put two links into my about tab. They were "catchy" enough to be clicked on by visitors, my followers number has grown by roughly 1000 people since then, but I registered only 6 clicks on one of the links and 9 on the other one. Assuming, that some people could have clicked on both of them, plus some people just could have been afraid of clicking the unknown links, the total number of visitors must be something about 1% of the followers number. Maybe, it is related to my profile only, Idk.
Has anyone else ever made such observations? What's your result?
