CircleMe User Interview #2: Vadim Vichniakov

It’s time to post another interview with one of our CircleMe users! Previously our first CircleMe user interview was with Dick Stoppels, now it’s time for us to have a chat with another member of the CircleMe community : -)

Vadim's CircleMe profile

Who are you?

My name is Vadim Vichniakov, I’m a french business school student (SKEMA, merger between ESC Lille and CERAM). Russian born (Moscow) I came to France when I was 11 years old.


Here’s Vadim in true world citizen mode

CircleMe is all about passions and things people love. If you could only choose 3 passions, what would these be? Why these 3?

1. Technology, IT, Social Media: I can’t even explain how it came to me. I strongly believe we are living an extremely exciting technological and social media revolution. I deeply want to be part of it.

2. Music: because it’s a way of living, I’m quite eclectic about it. For instance when I work I usually listen to some classics but I can switch in a blink to some inde, rock, electro… it depends, I believe there’s always appropriate music for fun, work, dancing, etc.

3. Traveling: I had the chance to live in Moscow, St Petersburg, Paris, Juan les Pins, Shanghai.

These three because I can’t conceive living without discovering new people and cultures… I’ve always traveled, I’m kind of a “worldwide citizen” ahah!

Tell us something you discovered on CircleMe that you ended up loving?

I discovered the service, thanks to a suggestion.

How did you discover CircleMe?

I discovered CircleMe thanks to one of Robert Scoble‘s tweets about social media trends.

What do you like about CircleMe the most?

I like the UI, its neat design and simplicity. Most of all it can be an incredible source of inspiration.

Paris CircleMe user meetup

How do you imagine CircleMe will be in 2 years time?

I believe CircleMe will gain a big community and become a famous social network. Big groups could be interested in acquiring its workforce and patterns (Google: to improve their the Google+ UI / Facebook: to enhance “likes” and “interests” experience)
