Site Features Discussion & Feedback
Since this is our first Site Features & Feedback discussion thread, I’d like to start with a bit of background. We’ll use these threads to get the community’s input on the site features that are currently in development and others that are coming up. As we come up with ideas and test new features, we’ll continue to reach out to all of you to get your feedback.
In this post, I’ll be talking about the new Discover Feed that a lot of you should be seeing in your My Communities tab.
So what’s the deal?
Recently, we did a complete overhaul of the original Discover Feed. We saw that many of you were creating great content, but the surfacing of that content to fellow community members was not as efficient as it could be. The new feed has been designed to facilitate the discovery of the content being created by members in all of our communities.
What’s included in the current release?
You can endorse a comment, play embedded videos, follow people whose content you’re interested in, and more—all on the feed itself. The feed works as a summary of all the action within your community, and allows more of the stuff you care about to reach your screen. Plus, it lets you really dig into the topics that excite you and deepen your knowledge.
What’s next for the Discover Feed?
We have a lot of added functionality coming soon. The feed will become increasingly personalized, and community members will have the ability to share content with others directly from the feed itself. Another key improvement we’re working on is more real-time feed updates.
Let us know what you think about the Discover Feed and where you want to see this feature go next. Going forward, we plan on making posts like this around every major release we have, so be sure to check back for updates.
