Google+ Now Allows You to Share Your Circles with Friends

Google+ announced a new feature Monday allowing its users to share their circles with friends. Anyone who wishes to share the content of their circles can now do so on Google+ Circles page by clicking on a Share button. Users can then choose a person they want to share their circle with and can also add a comment to follow.

Google points out that by sharing a circle, users only share the members of that circle but the name of the circle remains private. Changes you make to a circle after sharing are private as well. When your friends receive the circle you shared with them, they can choose who they want to add to their own circles.

“One of my favorite parts about circles is how they help me control who I share with, as well as what I read. In fact, many of you have created lots of great circles around topics that interest you (like Photographers) to bring lots of great content to your stream. In these cases, we’ve heard that you actually want to share your circles with others. Both to save your friends some time, and to connect them with interesting people and content,” Google Engineer Owen Prater says in a video announcing the latest Google+ Circles update.

Google opened Google+ to the public last week and introduced a slew of new features, including a number of updates for Hangouts and search functionality which allows users to search for people, posts, and web content by typing their queries in the search box. According to recent reports, since the public beta launch the search giant’s social project saw significant increase in users and its user base reportedly rose to 43 million.
