Google announced some changes to Google+ Circles this week. The company is rolling out an update designed to make the experience cleaner, and make suggestions better.

The Circles Page, for example, has a new left-hand navigation menu, quick access to your email address books, and the Circles shrink when you’re using a smaller screen.

More importantly, the “Find People” has received some improvements. “Simply type the name of a person or page you’re interested in, and we’ll suggest related individuals and organizations to add to your circles,” explains Google’s Sean Purcell in a Google+ update.

Find People

Google has seemingly had no trouble in getting its user numbers to climb, but making it easier to find relevant users to add to their circles is paramount to user engagement, and frankly, it’s been a long-needed improvement. Maybe it will be easier for users to find women using Google+ now.
