Pop princess Britney Spears now has the most followers on Google+, which President Barack Obama's team just signed up to. Until yesterday, Mountain View Chocolate Factory boss Larry Page had the most people following him on the social network with 744,579 "friends" in his circle. The Hit Me Baby One More Time star has nearly …
Basic misunderstanding of G+
If people are *following* you, they are not in your circles, you are in one of theirs. They aren' t friends either.
Spent too much time on facebook? :P
I second that
Must have interested you enough to read the article though?
I always read the articles IN CASE they may be interesting, which 90% of the time they are :-)
Too many sites. We need convergence...
Personally I think they should all be replaced with facepalm.
Identity Farming! ha! not when I made myself up, I don't even exist. The fools!
This throw-away comment kind of encapsulates my feeling towards Google+. I just want to use Google for search and Facebook for keeping in touch in folks.

Sorry, don't know where you got that idea, it's wrong. Don't suppose you'll reconsider your sources of (mis)information, will you? Factoids: 25% (shrub) vs. 24% (tricky) vs. 22% (buck-stop) vs. 38% (guy with the hot seat).
Unless you mean first-term approval rating? Yep, definitely having problems there, what with inheriting two wars and a financial crisis. Maybe he should _start_ some new wars? That got GWB lots of points. Not being able to finish wars does seem to catch up with you eventually though....

Denail has never changed reality
I doubt you'll need to worry abot Obama getting a second term. 20 years from now Bama will still be blaming GWB for Bama's failures. Apparently the U.S. just isn't ready for "Dope and Chains"? Who knew?
Re:Failures of various Prez'es
There's no need to blame GWB for anyone else's failures as the list of his own is so long and all-inclusive that it's a full time job just blaming him for them.
