Here is the update from +Sean Purcell, Google product manager…
With so many new people signing up for Google+ every day, it’s easy to miss friends and colleagues who’ve recently joined. So today we’re making some updates to Google+ to help you find people you care about and add them to your circles.
For starters, the Circles icon in the app ribbon is now labeled Find People. Click through and you’ll find a new page with a list of people you might want to add. We’ll show you people you’re already talking to on Gmail and other Google products at the top of the page. To get even more suggestions, it’s easy to search by your school, workplace, or other email accounts.
If you want to organize the people you’ve added a bit further, you can always click the “Your circles” button at the top of the page. From there you can use the circle editor to see all of your circles and decide who belongs in each one.
We hope this update helps you find and build great connections on Google+. Let us know what you think in the comments!
Give it a shot and we are pretty sure you’ll find it useful, Enjoy!.
