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.
- Go to your home page
- Enter a / in the search box and hit enter
- Now select “Most recent” from the left hand drop down
- Now select “Your circles” from the right hand drop down
- Take note of how much this differs from your home page previously
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.
