Google Circles / Contacts

slated in moments at 6:34 pm

Google’s merge of Circles contacts into my Gtalk and Gmail contacts is one of the worst things to ever happen in the history of ever. Just really bad.
I feel forced now to delete the majority of my circles, and sadness for me re: anyone that was worth keeping but were not in one of my “already knew this person before g+ so they definitely belong in my contact list and in fact are already there” circles; they’re all getting disappeared now. Sad but necessary. This is self-defense; I must save myself.

  1. I rarely am pleased with any mail merge, I know how frustrating this can be, I feel your pain… and you have my sympathies.

  2. Google+ has no one there. It is so frustrating. I get upset with Facebook but that is where all my friends are.

    When my email got hacked about a year ago, they went through my addressbook and sent obscene emails to all my contacts. I was horrified. To make sure that never happens again, I exported all my contacts to a spreadsheet outside of gmail. Now if I get hacked again, they have no names to exploit. Just thought you might like that idea since everyone seems to think they have the right to access all your email contacts now.
