How to make your Google+ circles bounce off the screen

So, you’re staring down a boring Monday afternoon thinking “I need something fun to do!”

Can I tempt you with a bouncing Google+ circle that falls off the screen?

Just delete one.

Warning: Randomly deleting G+ circles will make your connections disappear.

But who wants to miss out on the fun because of some dumb warning, right? Not me. So, here’s a work-around for the warning above. Either way works great for redeeming Blah Monday.

  1. Add the connections to another circle before you delete the existing one, or
  2. Create a dummy circle and delete it just to see it bounce.

See? Monday Blahs disappeared.

P.S. If you happen to find yourself a bit delete-g+-circles happy, you can choose “undo” and revive the last circle you deleted. But hurry because the undo option isn’t on screen for long.
