If you tend to follow a lot of interesting people on Google+ you may notice that your stream gets crowded very quickly. Sometimes it’s nearly impossible to keep track of particular posts you’re interested in with all the noise.
This same problem happens on all the social networks, Twitter and Facebook alike. The great news is that while other social networks aren’t doing anything about it, Google realized the problem and created a solution: Circle Volume Control.
Just like the video above illustrates, you now have a small volume control slider in the top right corner of your circle stream. From there you can decide how much of a particular circle’s posts show up in your main stream.
This is particularly helpful when you have a stream of really frequent posters who’s posts may not be of the utmost importance. This makes room for the more important or timely posts in your main stream.
If you have a lot of circles, it may take a bit of time to go through and adjust the volume of every circle, but your main content stream will surely benefit from it.
