Can I connect my social media to Circles to search for friends who are also Circles members?

Unfortunately, you can’t. Circles is not a social media platform. It works via a trust network, where money is flowing between trusted peers. If our members could link their Circles accounts to their social media accounts, the social media companies might have free access to your and our sensitive data - and we don’t want that.

 

Also, Circles works best with real, quality connections. This means if our members could just “import” hundreds of friends, that would devalue your basic income. We believe Circles communities should be based on real trust connections. And to achieve this, we consciously set up some barriers in the system, so we won’t get on the social media train.

 

Therefore, we recommend talking to your friends about Circles preferably without the social media apps, because we don’t know where that exchanged information might go.
