Recommend - A New PulseWire Feature!
You may have noticed a new icon within PulseWire journals and World Pulse articles. Now when reading a journal or article on World Pulse, you can choose to "Recommend" it and show support for the author. There are many ways to interact on PulseWire - whether you're writing in your own journal, leaving a comment to converse with a fellow PulseWire sister, or sharing private messages. The Recommend feature is a new, additional way to participate in the community and let the author know that you value their voice.
Try it! Click on any journal in Voices Rising, Resource Exchange or within a group. Look under the author's profile picture and you'll see a red star icon. Click on the star or the word "Recommend" and the star turns yellow, as well as adds your recommendation to the count. It's a fun way to support the ideas, stories and articles of your fellow PulseWire sisters. And as we test and build this feature, we can develop future applications that auto-spotlight the most popular journals, as well as the ability to share your most recommended journals with people in your friends list.
This is just one small example of features our team is developing. In the coming year, World Pulse will be focused on further developing the website, especially PulseWire, to address community needs, allow for you to find each other and past content more efficiently, and provide more opportunities for you to learn, share and grow as rising global leaders through Web 2.0.
I encourage you to test it out and let me know what you think. I am always available to talk about the PulseWire community and your needs for success, as well as your innovative ideas for improving our platform.
