Google+ VP of Product Bradley Horowitz has been tweeting about a new Suggested Users feature on Google+. It appears that some users are already seeing the feature. Heavy Google+ user Robert Scoble writes, "Google+ has ALREADY TURNED ON THE SUGGESTED USER LIST. Sign in as a new user and you'll see the new suggested users list. My look at this list? It's of active people. Looks a little algorithmic and a little human chosen."

"It's an improvement over previous suggestions," he says. "At least it's not suggesting users who don't put anything into Google+."

We're about to pilot a 'suggested user'-like mechanism on Google+. If you've got more than 100k followers on Twitter, DM me - lets talk! 1 hour ago via web · powered by @socialditto

@GordMcLeod Thanks. Didn't say it was based on anything.. just that I'm open to talking to and learning from some of Twitter's top users... 27 minutes ago via web · powered by @socialditto

The feature should be helpful for users to continue to find new reasons to keep using Google+. The content of interest, the more reasons.
