Yesterday, Ovi Publish channel alerted us that Ovi Store is going to receive some enhancements this Wednesday/Thursday, 10 & 11 August. Today after a short maintenance the store has come up with a new share button, the Ovi Circles.
We tried to share items through this new sharing icon and we get a link pointed back to the same item. Looks like implementation is going on backhand.
So, what is it - obviously its some kind of Nokia’s new social network – Well, searching “Ovi Circles” over Google results a small description that says:
“Ovi Circles beta. Share and Connect. Privately. Go ahead, start a circle. (You can change the name later). Already using circles? Sign in now ›› …”
It looks like that Nokia is in mood of starting its own social networking site :- Ovi Circles. The domain has been already booked, we have tested, but it requires authentication.
