Putting Meat On The Bones

It's great seeing old faces and new on Moblog recently and so I just wanted to quickly post some thoughts about some hidden features of the platform that are most useful to meet and connect with new people and find the best content.

Adding to Favourites
Whilst leaving comments on each others moblogs is often the most engaging way to meet and get to know people on Moblog, there are times where you might simply want to 'like' a picture, non-verbally, in the same way that you might on Facebook.

The equivalent non-verbal gesture on Moblog is "adding to favourites." Doing this actually sends an email to the owner of the photo telling them that you liked their picture.

Highlights by User
Highlights are those pictures that Moblog community moderators have selected as one of the most interesting pictures on the site. Some mobloggers have loads of highlights and others don't have very many. But either way, you can quickly have a look at them simply by appending their username in the URL, as shown below.

So, for example, if you wanted to see my highlighted pics, you would just append my username, "jc1000000" to the URL, as shown below.

Favourites by User
As with "highlights by user" above, you can also see a user's favourite pics on Moblog simply by changing the username portion of the URL, as shown below.

So, again, to see my favourite pics, you would simply edit the URL to say:

The same can be done with any user's dashboard who has a public Moblog. You can see their friends and their latest comments, simply by editing the username portion of the URL.

Eventually, the aim is to fix the design so you don't have to do this, but alas, that's all we have for now!

P.S. I took this photo at the Pterosaurs exhibit at the Natural History Museum in NYC!

P.P.S. It also seems that if you post a full URL in your post, it will automatically link, even if you don't write any code.
