Looking to find and Unfollow people that you have added to your Google+ Circles, but they have not added you back to their circles? What about removing the in-actives? Good News! There is a Chrome App for that!
With Google+ you would think there would be no reason to unfollow people, but there is one time that I think this would be useful.
There are "circle shares" on Google+ that you or anyone can become a part of and if you add a large circle to your circles, there is a good chance that many of those people will not follow you back.
Google puts a limit on a number of people you can have in your circles (5,000), so at times it would be a good idea to clean out the people that have not added you back to your circles, or even rid the "inactives".
With most Social Media networks like Twitter and Facebook, there is a way to find people that have not added you back and you can in return "unfollow" the "unfollowers". Well, there is now a free app for Google Chrome Browsers that will allow you unfollow the people that you have added to circles, but they have not added you to their circles.
I addition to that, you can also search for "inactive" bases on a time frame since they last posted and remove the in-actives and 'fake' profiles that you may have added to your circles unknowingly.
Again, this is important because, with Google+, 5000 is the limit for the total number of profiles that can be included across all your circles (you can have unlimited people that add you to their circles). So keeping your list 'clean' with actives and with people that have actually added you to their circles is important.
PAID Circlescope App There is a paid version of Circloscope (Uncirclers+). Circloscope will find and remove people who are in your circles but have not added you back to their circles. Purchase the paid version from Circloscope PAID (Uncirclers+) Free Circlescope App for Chrome Be sure you are logged in to your Google+ profile on your Chrome Browser and then install the Circloscope Free (Uncirclers+) extension. The rest is pretty self-explanatory, but a really cool feature is you can select and/or unselect the circles that you want to search and remove people from.
How to Find Inactives on Google Plus and Uncircle Them

Then Select the "Uncircle" or the "Inactives" tab in your Chrome browser to complete the function you wish to complete.
That's it! Now you can clean up your Google+ circles!
