We’ve Got (User)Tips for You!

In the last months our team is paying extra attention to user-experience and friendliness of our service. We want you to enjoy CircleMe as much as possible, and as quickly as possible. The quicker you do that, the quicker you can keep up to date on all your passions in life!

For this reason, with our most recent release, we have launched a new feature to provide User Tips to all new users accessing our web app. It’s sort of a welcome process, where we show you (from time to time) a specific tip related to how you can use the product, just while you are discovering it.

You will discover these tips as you go. For example, as you access the site, we give you a little welcome, like this one:

Then, we let you enjoy the navigation immediately, and every once in a while, we show you a little friendly tip, depending on where you are and what you are doing. If you land on our Discover section, we might show you this tip:

What’s new on CircleMe this week!

As you know we have just released a new Registration Process with a better and even more fun user experience.
Recently, thanks to your feedback, we have been working on website’s improvements.
Some simple details that we hope will make things easier for you.

Just to start we have simplified 2 of the 3 basic actions you can do on CircleMe: Like and To-Do. When you find a page you are interested in, you can click:
– on Like so you will receive news regarding that topic, in your activity page
– on To-Do so you will add the the specific page related to your interest to your list of To-Dos. You will be able to see your To-Do list in your profile so it will be easy for you to remember about new things you discover.

Of course every time you add a Like or a To-Do, if you want, you can immediately share it on Facebook or Twitter to let your friends and followers know.

We have also received requests regarding the possibility to open and engage more easily in conversations. Now you can do that by clicking on the comments but also on the activity page. When you see that someone has added a picture or made a comment, try to click on it and a conversation on that item will start immediately. There you can add your comments but also tag other people!

Finally, when it comes to your inbox, you’ll now see just 2 sections: notifications and messages. In Notifications you’ll be notified when someone trusts you, or suggests you a page about an interest, or tags you in a conversation. Messages section is where you can send and see messages that other users send you on CircleMe.

Tag to get in touch!

Tagging is now available on CircleMe: now you can engage easily and directly with the users on CircleMe about a specific topic.

It works exactly like you already know: just type ‘@’ followed by the name of the user you want to tag or select it from the drop down list that is shown after you type the first letters. You can do this when you’re posting a story to an item page or you’re commenting to a post.

The user you have tagged will receive a notification on his/her CircleMe inbox and this will ignite a ‘conversation’ on the item between you and the user/users you’ve tagged.

They may also receive (depending on their settings on CircleMe) a notification to their email address so even if they are not connected on CircleMe in that moment, they will be informed about your tagging once they check their email.

We hope that tagging will make it easier for you to get in touch with people sharing your interests and passions. Use CircleMe to get in touch with like minded people: it’s a good way to find interesting people and make friends or involve in a direct way the people you trust in conversations about interests you have in common!

What are you waiting for? Start using tagging today and if you have any doubts get in touch at support@circleme.com!
