Circle, the mobile-first ‘local network’ that adapts to your location to surface what’s happening nearby, has rolled out a handful of updates for its Android and iOS apps, including sharing photos and the ability to sort posts by topic.

Circle displays things such as weather, news, events and people based on where you currently are. Now, with the latest update, if you’re only keen on certain categories such as trending, family, news, sports, questions or nightlife, you can drown out the white noise and focus on what you’re actually interested in. Photo-sharing is also being rolled out to users over the next month.

The Palo Alto-based company is backed by big names such as Andreessen Horowitz, Ashton Kutcher, Ron Conway, David Sacks and more. The company claims it’s now drawing in more than a million new members each month and now tops ten million users.
