As we mentioned in our overview of Google+, adding people to your social circle there is a little different than doing so on Facebook. And it isn’t always straightforward how to add someone in Google Plus, or how to follow people in Google+. So here are instructions for how to add people in Google +.

If you have someone’s email address, or if someone is already using Google+, it will find them even if they aren’t in your own list of contacts. But if you are only searching by name, and they aren’t already using Google+, then Google limits its search to your contact list.
Once Google has found the person you are looking for, and you have selected them, Google+ places their thumbnail and name on your page for you to add them to your Circles. If they are already on Google+, Google puts them along the top row, otherwise they place them along the bottom rows.
And that’s how to add people in Google+. Once you’ve added them, drag them to one of your circles, and start following and interacting with them!
