In other news…

  • Circles can now be shared with your friends, family and even the public! It’s great to share the people you follow with like-minded friends. A shortcoming is that the circle is only shared as-is, if you add more people, it will not show up on the other’s peoples circles

  • And the popular Zynga game Cityville is now on Google+.
