Are you on Google+? I’ve been on Google+ since its launch. I’ve to say there is not much craze of Google+ as it was before at the time when it was launched. One of the creative features of Google+ is the ability to create circles, name them as you want and add people you want without letting people know which circle they are in.
Today, I’m sharing a Google chrome extension that lets you remove inactive people from Google plus circles. You have heard of same kind of tool for Twitter which lets you unfollow inactive users from your Twitter following. Since Google+ doesn’t allow you to add more than 5000 people in a circle, inactive users, who once created their profile and never came back to check the stream again, are going to count and can restrict you if you’ve huge number of people added to your circle.
Uncircle+ is a simple extension for Google Chrome browser that helps you find inactive users who have never posted any post on their profile and remove them from your circle. Since I had invited a lot of users and added them all to my circles, there’s a great possibility that 30% of the users would be inactive. And seriously, when I used this extension, I find 785 people from my circles who have never posted anything.
Uncircle+ is easy to use. Download and install the extension (Download link at the end of the post). Once installed, an icon should appear next to the address bar of the browser. Go to Google Plus and sign into your account. Click the icon, it will open a new tab where it finds inactive users. It may take some time according to the number of users in your Google+ circle. Once you find the list of inactive users, remove them all in one go by clicking the ‘Remove’ button.
