Google Plus circles helps you to organize your Google Plus contacts based on particular interest. You can create different circles for your friends, family, photographers you follow, techies you follow, people you met online or any other circle you like. Though Google Plus helps you to create, delete and rename circles there is no option to suspend circle.

You might wonder what is the need for suspending a circle? Everytime you create a circle, a separate stream is created for the circle and currently by default when you log into Google Plus, you are shown content from all your circles. But what if for sometime you don’t want posts from your photographers circle because users from that circle post a lot which doesn’t allow you to concentrate on other circles. Today one of Tech Journalist asked on Google Plus that how can he suspend his particular circle for sometime and its then that I got curious. Though Google Plus doesn’t have a way to suspend Google Plus circle but you can try the below option to hide posts from a particular circle.
