Is Google Plus Filtering Your Home Feed?

You can break Google Plus filters and your circles settings, to see what you may be missing; Filtered either by Google Plus algorithms or by your own settings on your circles…

Before you do anything: Take a good look at your home feed before doing anything. Take note of what appears there and what does not.

  1. Go to your home page
  2. Enter a / in the search box and hit enter
  3. Now select “Most recent” from the left hand drop down
  4. Now select “Your circles” from the right hand drop down
  5. Take note of how much this differs from your home page previously
  6. Now below tell me in Google+ comments what you think about this below… You are more than welcome to link to your own posts and screenshots. I value your feedback!

    DISCLAIMER: In no way am I saying G+ is heavily filtering your feed like Facebook is. What I am saying, is that I found tons of people, using this hack, that I had not seen in a long, long time. And we are not talking small users, we are talking some of the biggest users on G+, both people and pages. The most notable Mashable and it’s founder, Pete Cashmore. I denoted more on the embedded post above late yesterday evening, to see them, click the post and expand comments there.

    Bottom line is this: Play with this thing, find out for yourself and make up your own mind. My viewpoint is that this may well prove my point that I believe there is a very sharp Google interest graph algo at work on Google+, and has been for a long time.

    Prove what ever you can for yourself, I found this exercise very interesting yesterday!

    UPDATE: Here is why your Google+ home feed is broken and highly filtered.

    Bottom line, there is a bug in the sorting of what is displayed in your home feed, or so we believe here on this G+ post…
