- You can further import friend from your Facebook profile. You just need to use the Facebook friend exporter used in Google chrome as an extension.
- When you have a lot in your mind and need a way to express it, you can type it down and if it is really too long and don’t have much time to finish it then you can just type and save it as a draft in a blank circle and log in to your account anytime later and finish your article and share it with your other friends circles.
- Now you can just drag in your files which you want to share with your circles be it a picture, video or links you just need to expand the share box in your page and it’s done.
