    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    Once we've done that, we're looking for the Google Plus application
    .
    On this phone, it's in the "Social" folder on the second page. Give it a quick tap, and there's "Google+".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Let's tap on "Google+"
    .
    We're going to open that up. Let's see what's in here in the phone. It's going to bring us into the phone and notify us of any new or interesting things that may have happened. If we have any notifications, they're going to show up on this screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    Let's give that icon that looks like 2 bells a tap
    .

    Let's see, "Forrest Rodriguez" added us to his circles
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    "Wut Aay", whoever that is, shows up
    .
    There are different people here who've added us on.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    So, let's tap "Forrest Rodriguez" and see what he's got here
    .
    Do we know Forrest? We do not know Forrest. He lives in a place called "New york ha noi", which we've not heard of before. Anyway, we can be pretty sure that this is someone that we're not interested in following at all.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    If we want to add him to a circle, we can do that
    .
    Simply, tap "Add to circles" and then we get some options, such as "Acquaintances", "Friends", "Family", or "Following".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    We can tuck him in the "Acquaintances" circle, and now he's in that circle
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    If we no longer want him in the "Acquaintances" circle, we tap him again
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Then we uncheck the box next to "Acquaintances"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    He is now, no longer followed by us
    .
    We should update right now.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    We can also tap Back on the Notifications button, to go back into the main area
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Then, tap "Done"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    From there, we can just tap anywhere, outside of that section
    .
    That will take us back to our main area.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    What we're looking for next is known as a Hotdog menu, which is three little lines in the top left-hand corner of the screen
    .
    Someone was probably hungry one day and decided it was hot dogs.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    We're going to tap that, and instead of going to people, we're going to go to Settings
    .
    Tap on the Settings icon.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    If we look down on the screen, we'll see "Circles"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Tap on "Circles" and we can see that we have the "Acquaintances" circle set up, we have the "Following" circle set up, we have "Family" and we have "Friends"
    .
    We can choose what we share with our Circles or we can tap on a single Circle.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    This way we can see what the "Name" is, "Show posts", if we get "Notifications" and whether or not they're "Included" in "Your circles"
    .
    We can also "Delete Circle".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    If we want to change the name of a circle, we simply change the name
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    When we've done that, tap "Done"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    We're not going to change that name because these are "Acquaintances" and we like them that way
    .
    Now, we're going to go back one more time and here we can see sharing with "Your circles".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    When we tap on this, it shows what we're sharing with "Your circles"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    If we share something, we're not sharing it with the people we're following
    .
    We're sharing it to our "Acquaintances", my "Family" and my "Friends". People we're following are people who share things with us, for instance, CNN or BBC or Reuters news. Let's tap Back, one more time.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    Then, we'll tap Back the last time
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    Now we're back out to "Settings" and we're going to go one more time on the Back "X", to close up
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    Tap on the right-hand side of the screen
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    Now, we're back on our Home area
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  32. 32
    We can see that our friend and editor "R.J
    .
    Blain" is about to publish one of her newer books, which is great. Good for her, she's fantastic. "R.J. Blain", for those of us who are interested, she's got some great stuff and sometimes it's free on Amazon. Anyway, that concludes our tutorial on circles. R.J. is in one of my Friends circles because she's pretty cool. So, if you want to add your own people, your own contacts or just random folks and chat with them until you get to know someone, this is how you manage your circles on the Google plus application on an iPhone 6. Thanks for choosing VisiHow. I hope that you have a great day and we look forward to seeing you on some of our future videos. Goodbye.
