****UPDATE SEPTEMBER 7, 2009*****
I've gotten pretty familiar with the circle gestures and enjoy using them now. So look for my gestures. I still send out special personalized gestures but as my circle has grown...well...you know the story. If I hear from you...you hear from me. Thats the way it goes.
My friends are very dear to me. Its just impersonal to me to recieve a robotic message saying I hugged you. Its nice to have someone think of you specifically and send you a guesture. This option may remain available but should probably be reworked to not say......
Soinso ________'d their circle.
I have feelings and want to feel a connection with my friends. There is no easy way out of being a friend. If you love and care for my well being then dammit send me a special message that is different from hers/his.
