New Talk Digger features: follow the activity of your social network

 

I just released two new features that enhance the binding between a Talk Digger user and its friends. Users are now able to easily follow which conversation their friends are tracking and what they have to say about them.

 

 

If you would like to test this new feature, you only have to follow these five steps:

  1. Creating a user account (if it is not already done).
  2. Searching for friends on Talk Digger and including them in your friends list. A good way to search friends is to check who are tracking the conversations that interest you; to search for users that have the same interests as you; to check the friends of you friends by clicking on the “Friends” tab of your friend’s user page.
  3. Add them to your friends list.
  4. Check your profile page.
  5. Click on the “Friends’ Conversations” or the “Friends’ Comments” to see which conversations are tracked by your friends and what you friends have to say.

 

Bellow is the screenshot of the conversations tracked by my friends:

The theory behind these two new features

The theory is simple: you will probably be interested in conversations tracked by your friends because you probably have the same interests in life.

 

Following conversations of interest in a social group

Now people can follow what a group of people are talking about, the conversations that are interesting them.

Personally I have interests in the Internet, the semantic web, books and writing. So I’ll search for people with the same interests, I’ll add them in my friends list, and then I’ll start to check what these people are tracking, and what they have to say vis-à-vis some conversations.

That way, I created a sort of “virtual” group of interests and then I’ll start to check what this group is interested in.

 

The next step: creating an infrastructure to handle these groups of interest

The next step will probably be to create features to handle these groups of interests. Talk Digger is not just about tracking conversations, it is also about linking people together and create an infrastructure to manage interest groups would be a natural add-on.

  1. More please! You write and end with “it is also about linking people together and create an infrastructure to manage interest groups would be a natural add-on.” I’m looking for something on just that … “infrastructure” fo managing all the new (and tasty!) threads.

    cheers

    *blink* I just checked the code … right clear … 444816 … not exactly arcane … but got “wrong verification” again!

  2. Hi Mr. Tremblay!

    Such a feature will be eventually available on Talk Digger. I can’t really say when considering that much things have to be done before, but it will. Talk Digger is innevitabely going in that direction.

    Thanks for your comment,

    Take care,

    Salutations,

    Fred
