Why you shouldn´t expect to be circled back:

You may be under the assumption that people who you circle, should circle you back. It´s time to rethink and understand the nature of G+

Let me explain:
We are not what we like.
- i like cooking - but - i don´t post recipes
- i like urban planing - but - i´m not an architect
- i like 3d animations - but - i have no idea how to use 3D software
- i like amazing nature shots - but - i rarely post any nature photos
As you can see: what i like is totally different from what i post.

As a result it is totally normal that the people i follow and the people who follow me are mostly not the same people.

This may still seem like a paradox to you. So let me explain further:
Real friends are a mutual relation. G+ on the other hand is in large parts not about friends, it is about sharing your ideas, thoughts and creations. As a result the people who follow you are not your friends but your community. Look at it this way: Madonna may sing for you and others at her concert, but would you expect her to listen to your singing? probably not. The same is true for G+ - it´s a non-mutual network. One more thing:

This is also about quality: If you follow everyone back, like you are forced to do on Facebook, your stream will fill up with stuff you don´t want to see. Change your understanding of G+ and see it as a open source exchange: You may not follow everyone back, but in exchange you comment and +1 stuff you like on streams from people that may not follow you. So instead of a digital cock comparison, you end up with quality distribution - and that is what G+ is all about.

This is also written in context of the new Uncircle Chrome Plug-in:

Ma kustutasin igakjuhuks oma 1000 küpsist ära selle peale, mis mul firefoxi salvestatud oli. Mitte sellepärast, et facebook mind häiriks, vaid ma mõtlesin, et mis mõttetut infot need ülejäänud 1000 saiti koguda võivad.
