Google+ is now available to everyone and the most important thing for a new user is finding cool and interesting people to add to their circles. After all, that is the whole point of Google+. However, finding entertaining people on any social network can be a hassle. Just running a search for the person’s name may not yield the results one is looking for, since there are probably a slew of other people out there with the very same name.
Thankfully, there are services out there such as Recommended Users. Their only purpose is to find awesome people to add to Google+ based on what they do. With a service like this, it is easy to have your Google+ page filled with all kinds of interesting posts from people from all walks of life.
When a new user first arrives at the site, the first thing they will notice is the way the homepage splits into a bunch of categories, and that the images for the categories look remarkably like circles on Google+.
Obviously, this is done to make users feel like they are on Google+, even if they are not.
There are some celebrities featured on this site, but most of the people are more “tech focused.” If you are trying to find the Justin Biebers of the world, this is probably not the site for you.
There are categories for people in all lifestyles. The first place to start is the “People’s Choice” section. In there are the top 55 users who tend to put out the most fun and engaging content. One might be able to find all the people they want to add in this list, but the chances are, most users will be looking for people to follow in a specific niche.
That is where the specific categories come in. They have all kinds of categories featured on the site, so no matter what a user is looking for, chances are good that Recommended Users has a section for them. The first place I looked was the gaming category. Most of the people featured in there are, as one would expect, people who make games. Of course, there are some game journalists as well.
Another cool category are the scientists. Tech savvy scientists are people right up my alley, and the people featured here did not disappoint. I admit, I had not heard of any of them, but the content most were sharing was very interesting.
Choosing People To Add
Below each person is a brief description of who they are. This description comes directly from their Google+ profile. This gives you a quick idea of what to expect from them before you click on their profile. If you know who a person is without even looking at their profile, you have the option to add them to a circle right from the Recommended Users page.
If you need a little more information before you take the plunge, just click on their picture and look at their Google+ profile.
For both new and veteran Google+ users this is a great site to fill in your circles with many fun people. For me, Google+ has not taken off, and it feels like a ghost town sometimes. A site like this is a great way for me to find some people worth following and add them to my circles.
