Still, the same question keeps rolling in saying, “When will Google Plus allow us to go over the 5000 limit?” The answer is simple; they won’t, so please stop moaning about the Google Plus 5000 limit.
We always get asked the question above, and many G Plus users would like a work around on how they can add more people in their Circles – Why? is what we say.
If you add people or Google Plus pages to your Circles do it in stages, do not add too many in a 24 hour period or you will be stopped from adding more. Google is clever in the way they can temporarily stop you from doing this.
It doesn’t matter if you have only 2500 in your Circles or 400, do NOT add too many in a 24 hour period, Google looks at this as spamming.
Google is also clever in knowing if you have duplicate accounts, they do not go against your 5000 limit. One way to stay below the 5000 limit is by stopping the automatic adding of people from Gmail – if you have contacted someone in Gmail you may have the setting on where they are automatically added to your Google Plus – Just go to Gmail settings -> General -> Create Contacts for Auto-Complete: Choose ” I’ll add contacts myself” DO NOT forget to click the SAVE button.
Why on earth would you need more than 5000 in your Circle, would you actually be able to keep up with your Google Plus live stream?
How many people/pages do you have in your Circles now? Do you think the 5000 limit is adequate or do you think the number should be upped?
