Many people think that Google+ is a ghost town.
So if it’s a ghost town, why Google+ rated as number #2 social media in the world? Come to think of it. If you are the only person in Google+ why not join a community? Start a conversation with someone in your circle. Or find your own circle. People are always willing to add to their circle. People here are very nice. So take it for granted.
Also another info you might wanna read is this: 25 million in a month – Google Plus growing faster than MySpace, Facebook, or Twitter did — so where is the ghost town? You just don’t know because you base your observation on your subjective perception rather than take this as a whole.
What is this circle are you talking about? The circle are the people who follows you, friends in your list, family in your list, or community in your list. When you create an email on Gmail, your friends list in your email becomes your automatic circle. And you have a Google+ automatically. You just didn’t know it exist, but if you click your mouse to the right where your photo is or should be, it would say “View Profile” and you can see you have a Google+ made for you already. It’s there for you ready to use. And when you open your email, on the left hand side you can see your circles. You can also see your circles on the right when you view your profile.
If you are LOST in Google Plus, my new friend, Alex Garcia, will walk you thru in his community. He’s been in Google+ since 2011. So, join us here: New to Google
Another thing I’ve learned from Google is you can also use “Do Share” plugin for your Google Chrome to CHOOSE whomever you want to post your posts to either family, friends, colleagues, business associates, or just in public. At Google+ there is NO annoying pop up messages that says like “so-and-so are now friends with John Smith.” WHO CARES!!!!!! I’m too busy…gazing at these pop up messages it annoys me that these little TRIVIAL matters pop-up out of nowhere.
Also, you can create your long URL address like this, take my Google+ as an example, https://plus.google.com/u/0/106226879521872063470 to something a lot shorter and simplier like this gplus.to. It’s easier to remember. Just go to gplus.to and WALLA!!!!!!

So, Google Plus don’t have to be a ghost town if you participate in it. We heard this saying, “Don’t judge the book by its cover.” If you don’t know a whole lot about it, don’t base your judgement according to what you see. What you see is NOT what you really see. Just blinded by the FACTS that Google+ has a LOT more to offer than you think!
