    55When creating a circle, you are given four some-what confusing choices about the kind of circle you want to create:
    66   
    7  * Personal circle: a private circle that only the owner sees and can modify
    8  * Public circle: a public circle all members can see and join
    9  * Closed circle: a public circle that all members can see, but requires owner approval to join
    10  * Secret circle: a private circle that is not listed publicly and does not show up in search results.

     9 * ''Closed circle:'' a public circle that all members can see, but requires owner approval to join
     10 * ''Secret circle:'' a private circle that is not listed publicly and does not show up in search results.
