Circloscope - Circle Management Tool


+Circloscope Premium is an excellent tool for circle management: 
The new paid version costs 47 USD.
It is very versatile! 



+martin shervington wrote an excellent post about the uses of Circloscope Premium:


I recommend using Circloscope to manage you circles, not only when you get close to the 5000 limit.

Here is the extension: http://goo.gl/RQVFp it costs $47 for premium and is well worth it.
I was doing so circle adjustment yesterday and thought just how great a tool this is!
Here is a list of easy to follow 'recipes' you will find in the app. Very straightforward, and +Ehsan Ahmadi Gharacheh is on hand to help you out too. Hope it helps to get your circles in order.

My 50 most relevant profiles on Google+ and around Google


Here's information about where the data comes from:

Relevance score is a number calculated by Google+ itself, based on the interactions between you and people in your circles across various Google products.

These interactions could even be sending and receiving emails via gmail, having chat or hangout, plussing, resharing, commenting on google+, etc.

Currently, there're no official material on the subject but you can search the circloscope community for "score" in order to see some good discussion and read various observations on the subject, between power circloscope users :-)






How to get yours:




Step 1:
Head over to www.circloscope.com and install the latest version of Circloscope Premium on your Chrome browser.

Step 2:
Open Circloscope by clicking on the icon on your chrome toolbar. And go to "Action > Visualize > 50 Most Relevant".

Step 3:
Take a screenshot of your 50 most relevant people and edit the photo as you like :-)

Step 4 (optional):
You can notify them as well using circloscope by:
1- Filter > Sort By > Relevance (Z-a)
2- Select the first 50 thumbnails by mouse dragging
3- Action > Export Selected > to TXT
4- Open the resulting file and copy-paste Google+ ids to your post.

Step 5:
Publish the post with these instructions, your 50 most relevant photo, the notifications (optional) and this hashtag  






It's nice to be engaging with you all, either on business or pleasure.
With quite a few I have mostly email or Hangout interactions for business, but they still show up here.
Here is my original post with +mentions so you can add people.
