What's New?Googler +Sean Purcell has just announced a new way to see suggestions of people you may know to add to your Circles via "Find people" which was previously known as "Circles", bringing it in line with the "Find people" category found on the +Google+ mobile apps for +Android and iOS.
|You'll now see a list of suggestions for you to add to your Circles in the new "Find People" feature|
In Sean's post, he details what's new:
With so many new people signing up for Google+ every day, it’s easy to miss friends and colleagues who’ve recently joined. So today we’re making some updates to Google+ to help you find people you care about and add them to your circles.
For starters, the Circles icon in the app ribbon is now labeled Find People. Click through and you’ll find a new page with a list of people you might want to add. We'll show you people you're already talking to on Gmail and other Google products at the top of the page. To get even more suggestions, it’s easy to search by your school, workplace, or other email accounts.
If you want to organize the people you’ve added a bit further, you can always click the “Your circles” button at the top of the page. From there you can use the circle editor to see all of your circles and decide who belongs in each one.
We hope this update helps you find and build great connections on Google+. Let us know what you think in the comments!

Why we love it
It's much more than a rename and redesign, it seems that Google has made some significant changes under-the-hood as I've already managed to add one or two people I didn't know are on Google+. Take a look, you may spot a few people you didn't know are on Google+ too!
It wouldn't surprise me if most users see a slight increase in their follower counts due to today's improvements, but we'll have to wait and see after the improvements have been around a few weeks.
