Choose who can comment on your Google+ posts

If you want to stop certain people from commenting on what you post, you can choose who can leave a comment on your public posts and YouTube comments.

Important: People may be able to comment on posts they're mentioned in, even if they aren't in the group you selected.

But if someone from your circles leaves a comment and mentions someone not in your circles, they'll be able to see your post, too.
