Is there a connection between circlejerks and copyright infringers?  
YES!

During the last weeks I found out that a lot of the circlejerks are also infringing copyrights. They upload photos from photographers (even if they're here on g+) to their profiles/pages and post them without giving credits. Some of them have hundreds of millions of views.

I also want again to recommend reading the following post from +John Skeats 
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+JohnSkeats/posts/YDKh7WkimrS

Reasons enough to reshare my own post about:

THE METHODS OF THE CIRCLE SHARING MAFIA
worsen our Google+ Experience

Especially newbies get under the influence of #circlejerks  and can have a quite hard time to get rid of them. Their circles are filled with fake profiles, useless pages and of course a lot more #circlejerks

About 1 year ago +Bill Gassett wrote an excellent article. I read it then, but did unfortunately not act accordingly. Here is the link: https://plus.google.com/+BillGassett/posts/JfZdpwWY2Tr

As a newbie you might feel great when your follower numbers go up fast but you don't have more good interaction. Many #circlejerks   use #circlesharing  to promote their products, services or trainings. Often MLM and Pyramid Schemes are used to get e.g. a Cannabis or Consulting Business running. These "Snowball Business Models" are forbidden in many countries. Even if you disagree with this kind of business practices or if don't know about it you support it everytime you reshare such a circle.

You can support the circlejerks by cooperating, like many politicians and businessmen do it with the real Mafia. A lot of users do it out of boredom or not knowing about the disadvantages. They do the steps: "plus/ comment", "reshare" and maybe "add". The first 2 are usually required to get into a circlejerk-circle. Question is: how many add the circle? 

Everytime a circle gets reshared the chances for the jerks to get added by people goes up. Since the value to get added like this is very low it's pretty clear that you will get uncircled after some time. The "CircleMeCircleYou" way of thinking does not pay off. You will have to do a lot of cleaning up. So better say: NO! NO! NO!

Please comment etc. on the original post of +Craig Szymanski
 
Last night when I saw the forecast was "partly sunny" in the morning and "chance of light snow" at sunset I figured it was time to set the alarm and make the 50 minute drive down to the shore before sunrise and see if I'd get lucky. When I got there the colors were just the way I like them :-)

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Don't be evil. 
I can't understand, why +Google+ let's pages like +Interesting and +Best Photos and +Sunrises and Sunsets  and profiles like +luis gomez , +Antje Stöver  just to name a few generate hundreds of millions of views with #copyrightinfringement  which is against the TOS and the photographers most of all have nothing from it.

This heavy misuse of images ruins +Google's image.

as long as the real owner of the photo not stand  for his rights nothing happens, lots of pictures do not even have a copyright inserted, other sites removing even the exif data

Yoga-Mudra 
"The regenerative effect is brought about by external and internal muscular massage and intra-abdominal pressure. Yoga-Mudra develops powerful abdominal muscles and strengthens the loins. The mental effect is very great. This exercise is extraordinarily beneficial to persons who are inclined to be proud. Pride is driven from us. We learn to bow humbly before God and to turn to the source of life within."
- Yoga and Health, Selvarajan Yesudian

Eigentlich wird die Google-Brille erst als Prototyp in den USA vertrieben. Wir haben das Gadget trotzdem in der Schweiz getestet – und einige unfreiwillige Komik erlebt.
