The fact that I’m circling up all these journalists in Google+ doesn’t matter. They may or may not get a notification of the connection I don’t – I shut off all notifications. They may or may not look and think, Huh. No idea why he’s following me and I don’t know him, so no need to circle him back. Or they might know me, but decide that it’s not who they’ve chosen to circle maybe they’re only following Silicon Valley tech CEOs, for instance.
