How to add friends in Google+ Circles

I have used many social networks like Twitter, Facebook but the Google+ in really unique. The way to add a friend in Google+ in really interesting. This is a completely new design of Google+ to add friends in different circles. I got really impressed by this and I am sharing my feelings about this category of Goole+ with you.

Google+ has really innovative ideas for us. I have just started using Google+ just a week before and I got really impressed by it. The Circle tab is really very innovative and cool feature in Google+. In other websites, if you want to add some people then you have to do a lot of work to add the desired person. And these old boxes which are in left side of the site are gone with Google+.
In Google+ the link in available on the top and really it impressed me a lot. It is also very fun to add peoples in Google+. How? That you can see below-
As you can see there is a side bar showing suggestion of friends you might know. Here you can add the peoples you want to and it's really very easy. Just click on show all and you will see a page like this.

Here as you see there are two tabs showing People in your Circles and People who added you in their Circles. Below that there is a list of people you want to add in your Circles.

I want to remind you that in other social networking sites, if we want to add people, we have to add them one by one and if you want to add them in different groups, then you have to go to the option and click the desired group.
This trend is a history in case of Google+. Here you just have to just drag people to the desired group you want.
Also one more interesting thing is in other sites we have to hold the ctrl key to add multiple persons which is also a history here. In Google+ you can choose as many people as you can without holding the Ctrl key because here it happens by default. You don't have to hold on the Ctrl key to add multiple people.
If you want to search a friend whose email id you don't know, just type his/her name in the search box just upper right corner and you can find them on the same page without moving to the other page. These new techniques really save time.

Another cool way to add people is by sending invitation direct from your page and you need not to go to other page to send invitations to your friends as you do in other sites. You will find "send invitation" link to directly add people from other websites by entering their email id.
Just click on this link you will find a window as shown below.

Just enter the email id of your friend and simultaneously add them to the Circle you want. You can add as many people as you can. This feature is something which I haven't seen in any other website.

You also have a link given just below by which people can add you as their friends. You have to just copy the link and paste it where you want.

These are some interesting features in Google+ which I have seen and really impressed me by the innovative ideas Google has used.

Thanks Ataul bhai for your complements. As I have just started using Google+tips, I have posted my 2nd article here though the 1st one got deleted coz I actually don’t know that here I have to only write about Google+. I think this site may become one of the main sources of people who want to know about Google+. I will continue writing more and more articles and try my best to give as much information as I can give about Google+.

Again thank you very much for your guidance without which I couldn’t have able to written this type of article.
