Limerick 2030 explain #circle #youvebeencircled #limerick2030

The Circle phenomenon has hit Ireland. Limerick to be precise. It has dodged the bouncers and gatecrashed our lovely Limerick social media party. Want to know what it’s all about? Yes, we thought so. Don’t know about you, but it seems that everybody is inviting people and it’s sooo annoying.

So in short then, the Circle app is yet another flavour of communication ‘commware’ that is about to hit us from one of the many Internet giants– this time it’s Hawthorne labs. They, in association the people who brought you LikeALittle, are being funded by some large investors (one of which is the actor turned serial-tweeter, Ashton Cutcher). But for a change, they are not pushing another app down our throats. Rather, this app osmotes directly into your brain, all by itself. The secretive nature of Circle’s marketing strategy combined with the lack of instructions on how to use it, is well, cool.

So that’s the backdrop. But what does it do? Well, it’s like Facebook and Twitter had a baby. And that baby had style and was named “Circle”. For example, you’ve heard about Google Glass, right. If you have a Circle account and you are using Google Glass… hey, pictures speak louder than words. There’s a video below and it outlines what will be possible when those two get together.

We would like to issue our own health warning though, from we who like to see all things tech on the horizon. Bi cúramach. The Circle doesn’t care too much about who’s allowed see you; nor does it care who you can see. Also, sharing links on Circle is not easy, it likes to replace your links with it’s own links back to Circle. Yes, it’s crafty. Our verdict?

Circle is what Facebook would be like, if Steve Jobs invented it.

We strongly advise you to get your Circle account, before somebody else takes your name.

Yeah that’s right, Limerick, #youvebeencircled.

(O.k. Google, make me cuppa.)

I think you’ll find that that is not exactly the way it works. Circle is just another one of those apps that people go crazy for. Here today and gone tomorrow.

I must show some appreciation to the writer for bailing me out of this matter. Just after surfing throughout the the web and obtaining tricks that were not helpful, I believed my entire life was over. Living without the presence of answers to the problems you’ve fixed as a result of your short post is a crucial case, as well as ones that would have in a negative way affected my entire career if I hadn’t discovered the website. Your good capability and kindness in touching all the details was very helpful. I am not sure what I would’ve done… Read more »
