Here's the low-down on three super new features we released yesterday:
Following -- You can now follow the browsing activity of your friends on 9Neighbors. This is a great way to filter the content in your community.
We aggregate a lot of content in Cambridge. It's too much for me to consume, but the following feature is helping me solve that problem. When I sign up to follow my friends, I get a feed of links that they enjoyed. This stuff tends to be more interesting to me than the larger body of Cambridge content.
Personalization -- When you sign up to follow friends on 9Neighbors, you'll notice a change on your news page. In addition to the Recent and Popular sorting-method options at the top of the page, you'll see a new Personalized link. This is your page of personally filtered news for that community.
Share a Link -- Over the past few weeks, I've been in a lot of situations where I wanted to share a Cambridge news story with local friends, but wasn't able to because the article wasn't on 9Neighbors. That problem is now solved. If you see something you want to share with other folks in the community, you can now submit it via the link in right column of the news pages.
As always, let us know what you think about these changes -- or anything else on the site. We'd love to hear your feedback. (You can reach us at info *AT* 9neighbors.com.)
