Google+ Limit to Number of People You Can Add to Circles?

5 replies
Hi-

Google is telling me I can't add more people to my circles and that I've reached my daily limit even though I haven't added anyone in weeks.

I have 650 people in my circles and 150 have me in circles.

Isn't the limit supposed to be adding 50/day?

Thoughts on why this might be happening?

    Google+ limits certain circle actions to protect users and Google+ from abuse. This includes, but isn't limited to:

    Max number of profiles allowed across all your circles
    There's a limit of 5,000 for the total number of profiles that can be included across all your circles. This includes +pages.

    Daily limit to circle adds
    If you add a large surge of people or +pages to your circles within a 24 hour period, our system will temporarily stop you from adding additional people even if you're under the total number of people you can have in your circles. You may also hit this limit if you excessively shuffle your existing circle memberships. Repeatedly removing and re-adding people to different circles can push you to this limit. In these cases, just wait a day and you'll be able to add people again.
    Are you acting within these limitations?

      Yes.

      In regards to the 5,000... Does this include profiles I am a manager of? Even so I am below 5,000.

    It sounds just like a minor bug to me. I have had some small problems with Google+ before but it should pass with a bit of time. Just don't worry about it and concentrate on other things for the time being.

    I have noticed that Google+ Local pages can only add 50 profiles / pages in 24 hours...

    Guess your problem is due to repeatedly removing and re-adding people to different circles can push you to this limit. In these cases, just wait a day and you’ll be able to add people again.
