Google+ Allows Users to Reorder Their Circles -- and Adds Creepy Giraffe

In response to user feedback, Google+ now allows you to drag and drop your circles in the order you would like them -- not the order Google+ sets.

The new order appears in your list of circles on your left nav and in the drop-down menu when you add someone to a circle.

Google+ engineer Brett van Zuiden announced the change on his Google+ page and explains it in a 47-second video, which ends with the appearance of a stuffed giraffe -- perhaps related to the "zookeeper" circle moved around in the demo.
