Follr Feature Focus – Hash Tags

by Admin on April 17, 2015

We recently highlighted some new features that enable wider content sharing (see: “Follr Feature Focus – Sharing Content“) and today we are expanding on that subject with hash-tags.

Follr - Tags

In the example ‘News Feed’ post above you will see a hash-tag (the ‘#’ symbol). It has been entered as:

#DigitalIdentity

Adding a hash-tag allows a Follr user to tag a word or phrase enabling them and others to search Follr for other comments or content with that same hash-tag:

Digital Identity

This is a powerful search feature that we will expand upon in future months.

Check back for details on other new Follr features and if you would like to see something added please let us know.

Follr Feature Focus – Sharing Content

by Admin on April 10, 2015

We’ve rolled out lots of new features over the last few weeks – here are details on one of them.

We have updated the news feed and you can now more widely share activity and content from connections and members of the general Follr community:

Follr Digital Identity Newsfeed

The activity and status updates you see are either from ‘My Network’ (your existing Follr connection) or ‘Entire Network’ (everyone else). You can then like, repost, comment and share that content via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Google+.

To like a post simply click the ‘Like’ link and you will see this message:

Digital Identity

To repost content within Follr click the ‘Repost’ link, add commentary (if so desired) in the box then click the ‘Post’ button:

Follr Repost

In the example above you will see Mark used a hashtag, an @ sign and member tagging. We’ll highlight these features in a later post.

Commenting is easy – simply click the ‘Comment’ link, add your comments then hit enter:

Digital Identity

And finally Sharing. Simply click the ‘Share’ link, select a social network you want to post to then click share. And you can post to Facebook and LinkedIn groups and pages!

Post To LinkedIn Groups

Check back for details on other new Follr features and if you would like to see something added please let us know.
