- FindPeopleOnPlus – The granddaddy directory; add yourself. This Google Plus directory was introduced by Google, one assumes as a work-around to the flawed search engine. Check to see which of your Twitter friends are on Plus; unfortunately, it’s not linked to your account (either one) so the tool doesn’t know if you have already put someone into a circle. Thus this is best for those just getting started setting up circles.
- Group.as – Manage circles publicly or use public circles to find interesting people. View all groups as a tag cloud.
- FindYourPlus – Search for people by name, country, city or occupation.
- Google Plus Directory: gglpls – Another directory that relies on user submissions; unlike most directories, it requires you to publicize your addition on your public stream. This serves two purposes: validates that you are adding yourself and gives the service promotion. Geolocation and tags.
- Google Plus Business Directory – This directory maps business names and locations to people on Google+ as well as to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and other social networks; add yourself.
- Recommended Users – A relatively shortlist of people in a lot of categories. Curated by +Alireza Yavari
- Women of Google+ – Created by +Lynette Young, this is a great place to find other women on Google+.
- Google+ Counter – A site run by +Ralf Rottman contains a selection of popular user curated lists.
