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
- Go to Circles
- Right click with your mouse on the circle you want to Edit
- Click on “Edit Circle
- Click on “Rename”
- *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.
