vBulletin Social Feeds

I start with quoting from a vBulletin fellow customer:

We do have Social Network functionality now, which as a result creates activity from the members in our vB network. Unfortunately, this activity often is not noticed by the very same members in that vB powered network.

Isn’t that THE goal of a social network? Connecting people together.

When this is your goal, then you should provide the functionality to make it happen. To enforce and stimulate this social activity. vBulletin in it’s current state provides the fundaments for social networking, but it clearly misses important tools upon those fundaments to reach our goal of creating a mature/professional social networking environment for our end users, if that’s your goal.

A welcome-block / dropdown in the upperrichtcorner with just some notifications (like it exists now) isn’t good enough to reach what we want. With all the activities generated by the Social Networking stuff in vB 3.7 (and let’s count the Blog product to that as well) , be it only your friends (and their profiles, their albums, their birthdays and so on), be it the social groups you are a members of, be it forums your are interested in, be it new Blogs that have seen the light… the list goes on and on… we really need a PAGE full of information that informs us of the activities on the Social Network platform we are a part of.

Too much activity is left in the dark now…
