If you like to see what your friends are posting on Google+ but don’t need everything, turn down the circle’s volume. Google+ recently included an update that lets you turn down the amount of posts you receive from certain circles.
Log into your Google+ account and click one of your circles under Stream on the left side.
Then click OK, I got it. You’ll need to click this for each circle in your stream.
Then move the slider to adjust the amount of posts you see. You can turn it completely off, all the way up or somewhere in the middle.
This is a nice feature if some of your circles are posting so much it’s getting annoying. Hopefully Google will eventually include a feature to filter specific contacts like in Gmail.
