Another week, another round of updates. Have some good ones in this round.
First off, again we’ve worked on speed. Most of the improvements happen behind the scenes this time, but as a user you should see your page update more often with more relevant content.
Next up are a few design changes. Let’s start with one of the most-requested features: Some kind of way to know when you’ve gone over the Twitter character limit. From now on you can go ahead and write something of any length for Percolate and if you want to Tweet out the link we’ll give you a little editing window to widdle your comment down to Tweet size.
Next up is another highly-requested feature: Better access to followers and following. Now you’ll see it right on your dashboard.
Finally, the other big piece of this revision is around tooltips and other feedback messages. When you post you’ll see one that lets you know what’s happened and on first signup you’ll get the following quick explanation of the service (for those of you who want to check it out yourself, here’s the link).
Also, though it’s screenshotless, you can now click the green checkbox and unfollow someone. Definitely heard from a few folks looking for that option.
Needless to say we’re excited to be pushing new stuff out to you and we have a lot more we’re working on. As always, please let us know what you think and would like to see. Thanks so much for using Percolate, it’s amazing to see so many people Percolating all day.
