Discuss releases and issues for Profiles and Feeds


To Be Determined at Denby

Also see the calendar of public user group meetings.


Agenda for the next user group meeting is:

  1. Recently Released:
    1. Cross-posting to Facebook
    2. Location tagging for posts, and Nearby feeds for regions
    3. Display Name and Profile Picture changes shown in feed
    4. Email notification now has a preview of the comment
    5. Privacy settings updated to separate read from write permissions on the feed
  2. Language setting issues - (and others) - (we are currently investigating these)
  3. Behaviour & Reading
    1. Opening web profile defaults to feed tab (bug acknowledged on Aug 30)
    2. option to show my own messages on Home
    3. option to "mute" (turn off notifications) for an individual thread (separate from 'hide', which anyway doesn't currently mute notifications)
    4. ability to disable getting a post to your home page everytime a friend changes display name - (it's definitely on the list)
    5. new tab showing activities from all users. This would make easier to spot active users. Best if it includes a filter for activities (eg: I may want to only see new posts but not comments, etc)
  4. Posting
    1. option to edit a post or a comment
    2. option to hide from my profile a post I left on other users' profiles. Details
    3. basic text formatting (bold, italic at least)
    4. control+a ("select all text") does not work in new feed update input box; nor do control+left/right arrow, control+End or control+Home
      1. these keyboard shortcuts do not work in the inworld browser either. This is a Webkit issue. Possibly related: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4
    5. ability to "Undo" after removing posts/threads/comments
    6. @-replies, Twitter-style (autosuggestion and autocompletion). @username links to user's profile
      1. If the mentioned user is a friend they should get a notification of the mention. Else it should just end up in a 'mentioned' tab/list.
  5. Interoperability
    1. inverse cross-posting: from Twitter / Plurk / etc. into the feed
    2. better link to Flickr so that pictures you post can show up in the feed, if you want it to
    3. more social network links (such as Facebook pages)
    4. a way to post what I share to my profile stream on my blog
    5. an RSS feed of our feed posts and Home feeds. That way we could use existing rss-to-blog or rss-to-twitter software
    6. an API so I could keep track of the feed in an external client
    7. Profiles: When reposting to twitter, included URLs should auto-shorten (bug acknowledged on Aug 30)
  6. Messaging
    1. group chat - Maybe even a new kind of group that does not take a Second Life group slot
    2. Direct/Private message. IM is still the only way so far to share stuff with just one person
  7. Calendar
    1. a "Calendar" tab which, depending on your privacy settings, showed events you posted, had RSVPed for, or were being hosted by groups you were in or on land featured in your Picks tab. Again, see Penny Patton's post for details; this feature may be developed separately from Penny's wider redesign
  8. Friends, Groups, Privacy
    1. Upcoming: "Follow" feature, which lets you read updates from users not in your Friendlist (if their updates are public)
    2. ability to split up our friends list into different groups/circles with ability to manage our privacy levels based on those groupings
    3. Profile Feed Doesnt Respect your Mute/Block List
    4. Privacy Setting, Adding an options to lock the "Add Friend" button. (bug acknowledged on Aug 30)
    5. new feature: depending on privacy settings you would get notifications about upcoming birthdays and/or rezdays of people
  9. Notifications
    1. new feature: option to have notifications respect online status, so inworld notifications can automatically stop as soon as we go offline
  10. Pictures
    1. option to send snapshots from the viewer to your feed
    2. option to attach a picture to a message
    3. "on FB when you [..?..] a link, you get either a picture (if it was a picture link) or the link to the website with a preview when it was a normal URL, in the post"
  11. Interests
    1. something against Interests spam. Spam examples
    2. more interests (30 - 50)
  12. Mobile
    1. mobile HTML theme
    2. Android/iphone apps
  13. Integration with Marketplace
    1. (where it says 'share this item') ability to post to my feed for my followers to see. Would boost community generated promotion.
    2. "Follow this creator" or "View Creator Profile" buttons to allow people to follow the creators feeds for further updates
  14. Integration with Forums, Answers and Land, Event, Groups profiles
    1. Upgrade Land and Group Profiles as well as Event Listings all in ways to interconnect them. Thread them all together and also create a new way to use SL search to track down content relevant to one's interests. See Penny Patton's post for specific details. Some examples:
    2. when I add a post to an existing thread, or create my own thread on the Second Life forums, or pose a question to, or provide an Answer, or receive Kudos or a reply, that should appear in my feed
    3. people could "pin" forum posts to a tab in their social profile, like "Picks" but for forum threads
    4. Group and Land tabs, which would also have Calendars
    5. Group, Event and Land profiles would include interest tags like profiles
    6. Groups Profiles could list multiple in-world locations significant to the group
    7. Land profiles would list all groups that linked to that land as a group location
    8. Land profiles could have a number of "landmark" locations for "must see" spots in the land
    9. Group, event and land profiles would all have "shout-out" boards people could post messages to
    10. Groups would have a constant "group chatroom"
  15. Design
    1. idea: put feed in the viewer sidebar inside the profile tab. Mockup
  16. Search
    1. saved searches (limited to mySL)
    2. hashtags searches (limited to mySL)
  17. Web access to inventory
    1. ability to insert/link to landmarks, objects, notecards and share then. It's understood this is a powerful and dangerous approach though.
  18. Bug: notification icon doesn't automatically update unless I click 'Home' or refresh the page.
    1. happens on Linux/Firefox (NoScript extension installed but not blocking any script);
    2. doesn't happen on Linux/Chromium;
  19. Application and enforcement of the Terms of Service and the Community Standards
    1. Numerous people have had their real life info outed on the feed; others are under constant harassment; threats have been made against people. Inworld AR'ing is quite complicated, and seems to have no effect whatsoever.
  20. (add new topic here)
    1. add new ideas here
