Welcome Aboard! — this platform provides features which enables our members to connect and socially interact with each other. Read-on for few tips about what you can do here.
- Custom Profiles: Allows members to create profile files with searchable details index
- Friends: Members can use this to create friends list like they do on sites like Facebook and Ning
- Private Messaging: Allows all members to contact each other directly via internal mail
- Network Stream: Logs activity site wide of all members across the entire platform.
Create an Account
Register Your Profile: A unique user name with valid email address *for account activation* is naturally required, allowing multiple separate company and personal profiles to be created.
*Note: Upon review of new account requests, with completed profile details, we will send confirmation to the registered email address. Spammers and Bots Need Not Apply..
Upon login you will be auto-directed to your profile page which includes a clear tabbed menu structure to admin your account. Upload and crop your avatar image, sized at 150×150, and be sure to include links as fully formatted HTTP:// url’s for any additional (optional) out-bounds links.
Editing Your Custom Profile
We have a dedicated sample page with handy screen-shots HERE
A similar concept to Latest Activity on Ning networks and Recent Activity in Facebook. Updates are auto-added to any component so that posts, friend requests and any other activities are immediately recorded into the top page conversation. Members can use activity streams to follow the pulse site wide. They can also grab the RSS feed from activity streams to use in Feed Readers and RSS Widgets.
Registered and logged-in members can easily share external content into the stream.
Paste Any URL, from one of the sites listed below, into your What’s New Update Box!
This feature works like an internal site email similar to the Inbox in Facebook and Ning. Each member has their own individual Inbox, Sentbox, and Compose page. They are notified of new messages by the Notifications tab in their top navigation bar as well as by email notification as per screen below. You must be friends 1st to exchange messages.
Being friends, like in Facebook, automatically brings up your friend’s details as you type their name in Send To. And like Facebook, you can send messages to multiple friends.
The friend feature is a similar concept to friends in Facebook and on Ning sites. The friends list feature enables members to connect with each other and display a visible list of their friends. To add a member to their friend list all they need to do is visit their profile and click on the Add Friend button, the other member will receive a friend request and can either accept it or ignore it.
By adding the @ mark to a members name it will become hot-link to their profile and send them a message (note: notifications are controlled under your account settings tab) with link to view that thread and respond.
We hope you enjoy using the interactive features of this platform and will see fit to share the news with your wider network.
