I've been waiting for shared circles since I joined G+.But this is not what I wanted
I wanted a really shared
circle - not a dead copy.
I also thought right from day one, that it would be very nice, if Google incorporated Google's own collection concept from Google Docs
(collection aka 'folder'). Google Docs' collection concept is very strong. It could be used for circles. It could be used for topics - and much more. And you could also have truly nested circles with that concept.
But this ‘copy circle’ concept is not what I wanted. I want a shared circle for my poker friends. If a new member is added. I don’t want everybody to have to add that member to their own copy of that circle.
When you Google guys are going to integrate Google Docs seriously into G+ (and more) – then you would wish that you’d used the collection concept – at least I would.
… furthermore (expanding on this): I also want to be able to add any kind of item to a collection: bookmarks, videos, pictures, people, emails, posts, calendar items, calendars, documents/spreadsheets, generic files – anything to a collection. That would be a strong concept :-)
Please make my wish come true (it’s my birthday this year) :-)
I see a lot of users wanting this kind of really shared circles, including:+Bryan Goldstein +Andy Bryant +Tobias Lindh +Alexander Solano +Irfan Kamal +Alan Lepofsky
