  • Hei @darmillionaire - you can have as many circles as you wish :) I haven't reached 500 followers in my circle yet, so can't say about that . But good luck with the autoresponder if you're planning on using it!

  • Thanks for this useful information. You said there's a 100 email notifications limit per circle. Is there a limit per account? Say if I have 500 subscribers can I email them all by using 5 circles of 100 each?
