Re: How to take your first steps into an online community

Useful beginners tips Rosemary. I can relate a little of my own experience here if you don't mind. ( notice the compliment and the almost apologetic way of stepping in Groupee was the first Bloggers site I had ever joined with confidence. It was the newness of the Social network on offer that gave me a feeling of belonging. Prior to that I could not "break the ice" anywhere else. I think blogging is easier than joining a forum. Unless the forum is very specific in it's nature. In a blog you...

Re: How has Social Media Impacted You this Year?

Well you know what I think about Twitter. It belongs.... Well on Twitter no-where else as it messes other social sites up with it's constant twittering so yes right tool for the right job. Facebook is a requirement for some rather that a 1st choice. I seems to be replacing Emails in a lot of ways LiveCloud is having it's ups and downs..

Re: Twitter + Facebook Links Don't Appear

Hi, Steve: Your topic pages are restricted to logged-in users, Thus, the Facebook and Twitter buttons will not show up. If the topics were publicly-accessible, they'd show up. Does that make sense? Lori

Re: Twitter + Facebook Links Don't Appear

Hi Lori, Does this mean that I should change settings so reader can read and then share or like BUT keep posting privileges to logged-forum members? Thus far I have wanted to encourage people to join to read.,, so would this be the best compromise? Or do you have another suggestion that allows the social sharing and encourages people to join and log in?

Re: Twitter + Facebook Links Don't Appear

Lori ·
You're right: letting people read without being registered, but requiring them to be registered to post is a good compromise that will allow you to take advantage of the social buttons. Lori

OK, I'm giving it a try, opening things up more for non-registered visitors to the forum. And indeed, the Twitter and Facebook icons/links are showing and working. Thanks for your guidance, Lori, and Happy New Year! - S.

Re: How can I change the image that Facebook picks up when I link to our community?

Brian Lenz ·
Hi ST, You would need to specify OpenGraph tags to explicitly set the image to use. Right now, Facebook infers the image, which is why you're seeing that default avatar (Facebook identifies it as the best option from all of the images on that page). You can debug Facebook's screen scraping process here: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/sharing You can enter the URL and see all of the info. It will also give you details about the og:image element that you can use to explicitly...

Hi Kimmer, We think this is such a great idea that we've decided to add it into eve for everyone. We'll add it right into the control panel to make it easy for everyone to setup. Look for us to get this into a future release. I can't see whether it will make it into the next release or right after that, but we like the idea! I'll also change this, if you don't mind, into a suggestion so that everybody can add some feedback.

Re: Filtering out the Noise

Lori ·
I've been using my earbuds the last couple of days, because of this road construction noise, and it helps. On Facebook, I hide the game posts as they come up, that way I can keep it to the "nuggets". The only problem is that there's no way to do this on the phone app, so I have to log on via computer occasionally to fix this. I'm a bit surprised the iPhone app doesn't have a facility for this, but maybe they will in a future version.

Re: Filtering out the Noise

Oh Rosemary! What a wonderful blog. Very honest and heartfelt. I've never done a social network site... and increasingly I'm glad I don't get tied up in the white noise that people seem to have to deal with. I like a simple existence. I like to be in control of anything I say or post. This isn't a puff piece for LC as some may see it, but I'm comfortable here... and I know it's a social network site too!

Re: Can't share to Facebook from Firefox 50.0.2 in Windows 10

Hi ST, Thanks for the detailed report with video! Unfortunately, there's nothing within our control that would impact that popup. If you look at the address bar of that popup, it's running on a facebook.com domain, completely outside of Hoop.la's control. The only thing Hoop.la provides to that "share" popup is the URL of the page being shared. Beyond that, there's nothing within our control to modify that popup. In other words, that popup resizing behavior must be coming from either...

Hi Brian, I didn't notice the URL. When I get some time I'll set up a machine with a fresh instance of Firefox and see if that helps. I hope that the issue isn't widespread among our users. Thanks for your ideas. ST

Was this an offer to be a Community mgr? Lil FYI, the main page video does not show up in IE 9. It's just a red x, unless you hit compatibility mode.

Re: Your first day as a community manager

Oggbad ·
That was a generous offer in my email Rosemary, of "one of the coolest, most challenging jobs on earth".(In the email that was sent to everyone who has a watch on Social Strata I would guess). Not sure I can fit in the post of 'community manager' in as I am a full time grandparent these days and looking after my kids is far and away more preferable than a similar job on the UK Big Brother forum.......... Good luck though

Re: Why I Quit Facebook

James Cooper ·
First, let's start with the irony - I just used my Facebook account to post this comment. Its true, FB can and does suck in a lot of ways. It also creates an opportunity for a lot of fake and meaningless interaction. However, it does serve at least one purpose for me in that it does allow me to keep 'light' contact with a lot of people who don't live in my area. Friends from my hometown and friends who have moved. It allows me to keep a sort of dialog open that allows us to easily pickup...

Re: Why I Quit Facebook

Brian Lenz ·
Thanks for your comments, James. I don't disagree that Facebook has potential to serve a purpose for keeping in touch. My experience has been that while it has that potential, it doesn't typically play out in practice. I typically have used email/IM for those types of "light" contact, instead. I think that Hoop.la has a lot of the tools that are needed to enable networking and community in an effective way. If you haven't already, I'd recommend you check it out (you can set up a free site to...

Re: Facebook removing discussions tab

No need to manually copy and paste to save your existing discussions, you can install this free Facebook app "Forum for Pages": www.facebook.com/202980683107053 Once installed, click the button "Import existing discussions", this will add all your discussions to the new discussions board.

Thanks for the invitation to Hoop.la. Definitely I will be checking all its features, but I am happy with the way Facebook is. I know discussion forums have an important place in the community management toolbox. But hear I think you are misguiding the readers. Is social strata hosted on a cloud computing strategy platform. Facebook is not doing anything to trouble its users. They are making some changes for the good. There is an app available for saving your discussions, no need to spend...
