How can I visualize post shares on Google+?

I've been reading about Google+ Ripples but the "view ripples" option doesn't appear on any of the drop downs of the posts that I've made. Does it have to be enabled somewhere? If so, where?

    I have made it public/shared but I think that the problem might be because nobody else has shared it - i.e. there are no ripples to show yet. Can anyone confirm that? – Guy Apr 12 '12 at 19:19

Are you sure that your posts are public? According to Google Help, Ripples are only available for publicly shared posts:

Google+ Ripples creates an interactive graphic of the public shares of any public post or URL on Google+ to show you how it has rippled through the network and help you discover new and interesting people to follow. Ripples shows you:


My company's public posts don't have the ripples enabled either. I also think it's because they haven't been shared
