What is Direct Messaging in Circle

Direct Messaging in Circle is a feature that allows users to communicate privately with each other. This feature is designed to facilitate one-on-one conversations between members of the community, separate from the public discussions. It's a way for users to connect on a more personal level, share specific information, or discuss topics that may not be relevant to the wider community.

The Direct Messaging feature is easy to use and accessible from the user's profile. It provides a secure and private space for communication, ensuring that the conversation remains confidential between the two parties involved. This feature enhances the overall user experience on the Circle by providing an additional channel for communication, fostering stronger relationships among community members.
