Create or join a group to share your pictures, videos, ideas and much more...
Groups are spaces where you can exchange ideas (and who knows maybe meet someone!) It all depends on the choices made by the creator : in some groups everyone will be able to speak to each another and on others no one will be able to join unless they are invited !
To check all of this out create your own group by heading to the 'My Groups' menu and clicking on "Create a group".
If you would prefer to simply join one of your friends groups, have a look on their blog or profile. The groups that you have created and the ones you're a member of are displayed in the right hand column of your blog and in a moveable section on your profile.
Is getting good ratings something you're interested in? If yes then make sure to read the following carefully !
One rating per day per profile Once you've rated a profile you cannot change it before the next day. What that means is everyone is going to have to charm and impress to ensure lots of good ratings every day. ;)
A new marking system : The score Before we had an average rating that was used for the Top 500. Therefore a user that had ten “+5” marks and ten “+4” was not as well ranked as a user who has just one “+5”.
Now the system rewards the most frequent users, it's your score that's decides your top 500 ranking.
So put on the charm and find yourself at the top of the ratings!
There's another cool blog function you may not know about - links on all videos and widgets. Thanks to these links you can add the videos (Youtube,Dailymotion...) or widgets (GoogleMaps, Pixule...) that you love directly to your blog.
All you need to do (ensuring you are logged in at the time) is click on the 'Add this video to my blog' / 'Add this widget to my blog' link and a blog article will automatically be created!
