This week, Circle launched a brand new feature called Live Streams, which allows users to host live streams within their Circle community. In this video, we're going to take a closer look at this new feature as well as some of the other things that Circle has released over the last eight months.
For those who may be new to Circle, it's a tool that can be used to create your own community forum. You can create different topics or threads within your community, and within those threads, you can have discussions about different things. One of the main ideas behind Circle is that it solves the problem of discussions disappearing over time, which can make it difficult for new members to get caught up and involved.
Since switching to Circle, I've seen a huge increase in engagement and a wider range of members getting involved in different discussions. To keep retention of members high, you need to use a tool that makes engaging and communicating with each other easy, and Circle definitely ticks those boxes for me.
Another thing that Circle has done well is allowing community organizers to host and organize events. You can set up an event and Circle will take care of notifying all of your community members, who can then respond directly inside of your event post and add it to their calendar. This has been a great feature for engaging with the community more effectively.
Over the last eight months, Circle has shipped a lot of new features that are game changers, including the introduction of an iOS and Android app. This allows you to engage with your community on the go, which is a huge plus.
In conclusion, Circle is hands down the best tool to use to manage an online community. The new Live Streams feature is just the latest addition to an already impressive list of features that make Circle stand out. If you're considering setting up your own Circle community, I highly recommend checking it out.
