Have you ever heard of Circle?

These are online communities that are typically made with more modern features.

These are the online communities of 2023.

Would you use this, or is a forum better? Why?
Is there a preview forum anyway? Interested in seeing what it looks like.
So, I've been a community manager on Circle for about a month now (paid position) and it's nice but it lacks a lot of features.

Their mobile app sucks to say the least. The desktop app has a lot of feature but the mobile one does not and I just think that's a bad move in 2023.

But it isn't the worst platform.
I'm not sure if Circle would benefit from a forum-like support or utilizing their community. Since it's all paid, I feel like more P2P support is appropriate.
