OMG! Today is my ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY! On this day, one year ago, I stopped taking in any nicotine at all. Besides second-hand smoke. We may be moving after our finances return to a more normal state. We live in a duplex and the new neighbor chain-smokes and our place smells like a bar all the time now because her smoke infiltrates our place. Which is funny, because when we smoked, we did it outside...

- I don't think you can notify people by just posting to circles,- I do get notifications from you but that is because I have put you into a circle where I get notified of all of your posts. In the old G+ people could send out notifications to their circles which, in certain situations was a good thing, but was horribly abused and I was notified constantly, tens of times a day by total strangers, including weirdos. Now it is not possible. If a person is in your circles, and you post to a certain circle, they will only see the post if they also have you in a circle and have that circle set so they see all or most of the posts. A public post will be seen by everyone who has you in their circles as they go through their stream. One posted to a public collection will be seen by all who follow you personally and have not unfollowed that particular collection and all who have chosen to follow that collection but not necessarily follow you. I hope this helps.3d
Posting to a "Public" collection allows everyone, everywhere to see your posts. There is no "privacy" within circles anymore and that is dumb. No point in circles then...
And then, they also share your outside the G+ sphere, like comments on "Blogger" site posts!
I'm kinda miffed at G+ right now.3d
- I seem to be missing posts from friends which I used to see listed in date order, all laid out in what to me seemed like an orderly and logical fashion. And now I'm getting posts from collections of no relevance but automatically signed up to because I followed the owner... at some point! It's really annoying. Sigh... reading your reply above to Dea, I begin to see what is happening. Thank you!3d
Yeah, basically, if you want anyone (everyone) to see it, you have to post it "Public". And your friends have too as well. If they post it to Circles (so what's the point of circles now), you aren't likely to be notified.3d
- not confusing at all, then!3d
- Sorry, lapsing into cynicism...3d
