We're starting to roll out some improvements to the way you find people on Etsy, aptly called People Search! With this new People Search tool, we're expanding on the search tool that's available in Your Circle and making it available across the whole site. Now you can search through ALL Etsy members and filter by Sellers or Non-Sellers. You even have the option to add someone to your Circle right then and there! People Search will be replacing Sellers Search in the site header search dropdown.
We're carrying over all of the privacy settings from Sellers Search so you can still hide your real name from search in your Profile.
