Born and raised just outside of New Orleans, La., I attended the University of Florida and graduated with a B.S. in Journalism. I currently work as a sports reporter for GatorCountry.com, covering Florida Gators football, basketball and basketball recruiting.
I use my Google+ account for both personal and professional use. At least 90 percent of my updates on G+ will not be public. I will post Florida Gators updates to a "Florida Fans" circle, as well as to a handful of different sports media circles.
My friends will not see those updates (unless they ask me to put them in that circle because they want the updates), as I will post all "Facebook" type status updates to my personal "Friends" circle.
Thus, if you want to follow me ala Twitter, just add me to one of your circles and I'll move you to the appropriate circle to receive the Florida Gators updates you want.
If you're my friend, I won't subject you to my Florida Gators updates unless you request it. The beauty of Google+ circles...
