How to rename Circles and change their ordering

How to rename Circles and change their ordering

I have seen many questions about this on my Google+ stream so here I’m sharing my simple guide and instructions on how to rename your circles in Google+ Circles and change the order by which they appear on your stream page.

How to rename circles and change their ordering on your Google+ stream page

  1. Go to Circles
  2. Right click with your mouse on the circle you want to Edit
  3. Click on “Edit Circle
  4. Click on “Rename”
  5. *Click on “Save” after you are done

Google+ allows you to rename the default circles.

If you rename your circles so that they start with a number (1. Family, 1.1. Friends, etc.) you will be able to organize them in a more personalized way.

Please be aware that only the first five circles will appear on the stream page by default. Hope this helps.

Find me on Google+ and please leave your thoughts in the comments.

Thanks to +Brandon Campeaux for the tip.

This how-to works for Chrome running on Windows 7

1. Download ManyCam from CNET

Please be advised that the installation also installs “Weather Bug” that you will have to get rid after you are done with the installation.

2. After ManyCam is installed open the application
3. Click on Sources
4. Click on Open New Files
5. Choose your movie file
6. Start an Hangout on Google+
7.*Go to Settings*
8.*On Camera choose “ManyCam Virtual Cam”*
9. On Audio choose “Stereo Mix”
10. Start playing the movie

** Do not close the Settings Window on G+. For some strange reason GTalk is not saving the settings*

Have fun!
