Common questions about chat spaces

Yes, Circle offers you the best of both worlds! You can create a post space for asynchronous discussions where members create posts and comment on them, similar to what you see on your newsfeed on social media platforms. 


Alternatively, you can create a chat space (which looks more like any other messaging platform) where everybody can discuss things spontaneously in real-time.

No – for privacy reasons, messages members send to each other are kept private.

Group chats are private messages that you or your members send to more than one person. For example, you could send a private message to two people in order to introduce them to each other or to plan a team lunch.


Think of chat spaces more like real-time channels for different purposes and topics, much like Slack and Discord. Members can join themselves and start interacting right away (if your spaces are public) or you can add them to these spaces (if they’re private.)

Yes! Chat is available on both our iOS and Android apps, which means you can get notified about messages via push notifications (instead of email) and interact with your community on the go.

To get started, check out this great example from our Contest space and this helpful thread in our Ask the Community space about how Circlers are using chat.
