    GOOGLE+ is rocking!
    Nice article,was looking for something like this,THANKS!



    superb for Gplus!
    But on plus for business I can’t get it to work, the problem there is, that I can not add a person/mail-address to any circle, it is just not available.
    May this is because I’m using Google-Apps…
    However, it is getting better – before it was not possible to use Gplus within an Apps-Account
