Hey! Look up there! The IgoUgo blog has a new name, and a new focus on your greatest travels and best contributions. And beyond the blog, we’re unveiling more new features today to help you track both fans and friends.
First, the blog update—the IgoUgo Community Blog update. (Remember when we were the IgoUgo Travel Blog? Feels like forever ago.) We’ve added a second subscription option that allows you to receive blog updates via email, so you can get IgoUgo highlights and community news in your inbox. Our first subscription option, an RSS feed, will remain; you can find both sign-ups right here on this page.
On to more Cheerful news. You’ve been Cheering the content you enjoy for a while now, and seeing the submissions that receive the most Cheers featured on the Best of IgoUgo page. Now you can see the precise Cheer tallies of reviews, experiences, and journals on member pages like this one, including your own, of course.
You’ll need to log in to check out our third new feature: a Friends Network search bar that quickly scans your existing network or the entire IgoUgo community to easily find members by name or hometown.
We’re excited to release these updates and thrilled about others coming soon in 2009. Happy new name, er, year!
