    Chris, I recommend adding a new category – Literary Peeps. I recommend Jim Hanas, a short story writer and literary editor. He writes an interesting and thought-provoking column for Google+ so I’d add him.

    As for me, I’m still tinkering. I share IM information as well as literary with a healthy dose of other ephemera. Politics, etc. I think my best stuff falls into the literary department, but I’ll let you decide. :-)

    Stephanie Calahan is a great productivity guru, she’s on G+ already. add her please!

    May be Bloggers and Online authors can be a category. If you cannot classify an author into other categories, this category can be used.

    Chris,

    So far you have a pretty good list started but I will come up with some more. In the meantime I say add Abi. Just one heck of a nice guy.

    I think there are a lot of Googler’s that you’re missing, but it’s hard to put together a list. Some will post about their jobs others won’t.

    Matt Cutts, Rick Klau, Jeff Huber, Travis Wise, Brian Rose, James Crawford, Kamal Singh, Robin Norvell, DeWitt Clinton, Punit Soni and Bradley Horowitz are all good people on Google.

    Some of the best people that I know that have a strong interest in education besides myself are Jason Becker, Sharon Cauldwell, and Audrey Waters.

    I respectfully, but strongly, disagree with even having a politicians category. Someone else can curate that hoo haa. I’d never follow a politician on G+. They phone it in everywhere else, they’ll phone it in on G+ too.

    I agree, I think there are probably a lot more people. Then some of those people, although known for a category, are not really posting about that category on a regular basis either. That’s my problem. I am not ‘well know’ so to speak, and I don’t focus on one category of information. I post news, information, business, marketing info of all types and I do the occasional “sharking” too…

    As I’m slowly learning how to use and how others are using G+, I’m starting to figure out what I want to post about. Segmenting lists works, only problem is, I think nearly everyone public posts, since that is how you get traffic. I wish Google would add another version of Public to how G+ works. As a result of G+ my personal, albeit test blog, has increased in traffic by 215%. I love that aspect.

    I have suggestions of other people, for those that might want to know… Not sure my list will meet the standards of some of the ones above. :-)

    I’d be interested in a G+ invite. I’m using the +1 on my website and hope that Google FriendConnect will also be replaced with Google Plus soon.

    Hi Chris, I was wondering if you could you add a category called parenting? Here is also my link https://plus.google.com/101665223031480836060#101665223031480836060/posts I would love to find more people interested in the same topic! Cheers!

    I like your list, many of them are in my social media kings & queens list, lol. I have done things a little different too and done countries.

    These are definitely some of the best people to follow on google plus. I’m not sure if I care about celebrities here, unless they are known for their intelligence. Or have something of value to share and engage with. There’s always facebook and twitter for that. Good stuff, Chris!

    You know, Chris, thinking about Hangouts and video and where that’s going on the Plus, how about a filmmaker circle?

    I happened to stumble across this guy here who is starting an unofficial google plus film festival in Hangouts. Don’t know anything about him, but I like his idea.

    I don’t get it, why follow someone who just has a static page up like Mark Zuckerberg?

  22. Posted August 20, 2011 at 11:16 am | Permalink

    Thanks for the add, Chris! Finishing up a youtube film right now, actually. I’ll keep you updated and share any new filmmaking plussers I come across.

  23. Posted August 20, 2011 at 11:35 am | Permalink

    Not technically a filmmaker, but very important to film, IMO. And a Chicago icon. Where does this guy fit in on our list?

    Hi Chris, I would love to have a G+ invite. I’m nobody huge yet, But this would be a great start. Avis Hardy -aka- 1stAutumn.

    Chris,

    I would love it if you added a Training list. Count me in.

    Also, if you are looking for additions to you Mobile Marketing list, I would like to be in that list.

    Cheers,

    As I stated in your post I would get to this. A simple ‘Home’ wouldn’t be enough but Home Remodeling and Improvement maybe too much. IDK I’ll leave that up to you. Here’s a link that would work for it
