This is my take on the information flow in Google+, showing pretty clearly where the points of contention are, at the Sparks input, and the (non-existent) output. Harold Jarche blogs some additional diagrams. As does Judy O'Connell.

- You decide how to arrange your social networks in circles
- You are responsible for scanning and filtering the firehose of information
- You can talk to anyone, and anyone can talk to you
