Original Post

Hi everyone,

We are pleased to announce a set of new features to help shoppers discover great gifts for friends and keep up with new items from their favorite sellers. Oh, and it will notify you of when your item is featured in a treasury list, as well!

They’re called Activity Feeds and Circles. Here are just a few things they can do:

* You can add a friend to your circle, which will allow you to easily see what items your friends favorite, giving you great ideas for gifts.

* You can add an Etsy member to your circle whose taste you love to get great shopping ideas! Hey, you gotta shop for yourself, too :)

* You can find out every time your item is featured in a treasury list.

* You can see when your favorite sellers have listed a new item, so you will remember to go back into their shop and grab the latest and greatest!

All these events and more appear in your activity feed, which is linked at the top of every Etsy page. Start adding members to your circle today through either our new people search feature linked to from the circles page in your member profile or visit any member profile page and click the “Add to Circle” button.

We will be adding new features to the Activity Feeds, so stay tuned! We'd love to hear your ideas of what you'd like to see here, both as a buyer and as a seller, and we welcome your feedback about how to make this feature even better!

Thanks,
~Andrew
