We are receiving number of emails from our users saying that they can’t add more people to their circles in Google Plus.
Whenever they are adding new people to the circle, the below message is displayed :
You’ve reached the maximum number of people that can be in your circles at this time.
Our support technicians have found that this happens due to the individual’s activeness for his Google+ account, but in total you can add only 5000 friends.
1. If the Individual has just created his account with Google+, then he can only add few hundred people to his circle in 1 day.
2. If he uses Google+ a lot and adds people to his circle on a daily basis, then there is a limit of 5000 friends.
So, when an active user has added 5000 people to his circle then this error message will be displayed to him, and he won’t be able to add more people to his circle.
If you have less than 5000 Friends in Google Plus, then limitation is for a couple of days, which will automatically get extended by looking at the activeness of that user. So, you need to wait for a couple of days, to add more friends.
We are constantly doing the experiments to find out more solutions of this limitation.
If you have any suggestions/comments for the same, then please write them below.

I hv reached 5000 limit for over 2months and unable to add any day since then, although I receive request.
Please advise what to do as some others hv big numbers.
Hi mukesh, can you give example of any person who has more than 5000 friends in google+ ?
I have not reached 5000 limit and I’m still getting that same error message. I’m a daily user and been with gmail from the begining.
Looks like they are starting to cap alot of things like facebook. HOPEFULLY google+ doesnt turn into another FACEBOOK!
I reached 5000 same message same B…s! Anybody know how to fix?
Earlier there was a workaround. But now its not possible.
