Who is in your circles that you follow just out of interest?

I really wanted G+ to work. Finally there is a good iPad app, but there's just too few people using it.
I would be pretty happy to move away from Facebook, but literally none of my friends and family use G+!
So I follow a few science types, and barely use it.

Cheers,
Joseph

Well with over 450 million people using it I'm sure you will find someone. Leave your family and friends on Facebook and discover new people on Google +

People in my circles include

Mike Elgan
Robert Scoble
Richard Branson
Mashable
The verge
TWiT
TED
Most of the major news agencies.
Plus many many more.

Agreed I like to follow people and subjects of interest, and dont see it as an alternative to FB.  If I want to interact with people I can but there is no need to 'like' pictures of what they cooked for dinner or the latest cute picture of their (insert cat, dog, child).  I think to get the benefit of it takes a little more perseverance than FB but then I just never 'got' FB.
