Google Plus is still in Field trial and is yet to pass through the “Make it or Break it” scenario. If you have heard about Google Plus then I take it for granted that you might have heard about the circle concept of Google Plus as well.If you haven’t heard of Circles then here is an excerpt from the official Google Blog which will better you make you understand :
+Circles: share what matters, with the people who matter most
Not all relationships are created equal. So in life we share one thing with college buddies, another with parents, and almost nothing with our boss. The problem is that today’s online services turn friendship into fast food—wrapping everyone in “friend” paper—and sharing really suffers:
- It’s sloppy. We only want to connect with certain people at certain times, but online we hear from everyone all the time.
- It’s scary. Every online conversation (with over 100 “friends”) is a public performance, so we often share less because of stage fright.
- It’s insensitive. We all define “friend” and “family” differently—in our own way, on our own terms—but we lose this nuance online.
In light of these shortcomings we asked ourselves, “What do people actually do?” And we didn’t have to search far for the answer. People in fact share selectively all the time—with their circles.
From close family to foodies, we found that people already use real-life circles to express themselves, and to share with precisely the right folks. So we did the only thing that made sense: we brought Circles to software. Just make a circle, add your people, and share what’s new—just like any other day:
Believing you are a bit familiar for what circles are, I’m moving on …
In fact the circles in Google Plus is similar to the “ friend lists” in Facebook, but in Facebook this feature is buried deep down and I don’t think anyone has time spending hours trying to sorting friends into different lists.
But Google Plus have come up with a cool and engaging interface to draw attention to circles, with effects like Drag and Dropping friends into circles, Dropping multiple friends into a circle at the same time, circles expanding on mouse-hover and my favorite is deleting a circle(When you delete a circle the circle just rolls away).
Recently I came across a website called Circle Hack where i found the same circle effects applied to Facebook lists, and something more wonderful was that they provided the source code for download.So go forward and have a look at the live demo or download the source files and implement in your own website in your own way.
The download file contains the complete script to create Google + like circle effects in your own website for free.
