Since our initial revamp of the Activity Feed, we've been steadily improving it and adding more based on Network Creator requests. One of the biggest requests has revolved around status updates. For a long time, when someone would post a status update directly in the Activity Feed, it would exist only as long as it remained in the Activity Feed. Once it dropped out of the bottom of the feed, it was nowhere to be found. The reason: the status update had nowhere to "live" — it existed as a temporary item with no place to call home in our system.
This is no longer the case! We're happy to report that each status update now has its own individual page.
Notice in this screenshot that this page has its own dedicated URL. This is where this particular status update lives — along with all of the replies that have since followed the status update.
What's visually different with this release?
Now that status updates have been beefed up, you'll notice a link in the Activity Feed whenever you see a Status Update.
This link will lead to an individual status update page. On that page, you can edit or delete a status post. You can also edit or delete comments on a status post.
As you might expect, commenting on a status post will be reflected in the second location. Comment on someone's status update, and your comment will also show up in the Activity Feed. Comment on someone's status update in the Activity Feed, and your comment will also show up on the individual status update page.
Most important of all… email notifications
You will undoubtedly be very happy to hear what may be the most important detail of this update: Now, when someone comments on a status post, the system will send an email notification. This setting can be controlled via the "Items I add" choices in each member's Settings. This works in a similar manner as it does with Photos or Videos, for example. Once you comment on a status post, you will be following it. As always, each member controls this via their Settings page.
We know that many of you see this last detail as an important driver of activity on your network. Why not start the status update bonanza now and break in this new feature of the Activity Feed. It's now live on all networks.
This is great... just what I wanted..... OVAHLIVE.com is here to stay...lol....
great idea! yea that is worthwhile
as it is it seems like you want them accessible and replyable but only by emauil notification and many of us turn off email notification fir everything but messages or spe4cific discussions worth following and there is no follow link on statuses (is there?) so it would go off with other features or
i know i know hate comparing to facebook but lets look at the new facebook timelines maybe links accross the top for todays status this weeks this months all time
under inbox see settings then email settings
Awhhh, I was looking in my Manage section all over for it. Thanks!
these feature should be on by default.
This information is very helpfull, thanks
OMG!!! thanks for this, this will help me a LOT in my network.
I was using slinkset in my network but as you know the app is no longer working, i was sad because my network is for bloggers so they was shearing their urls by the slinkset app, but now they can share the links by the activity feed ^^, and that new page of status updates can be a list of new posts, so... yay, am doing the happy dance!!!.
Thank you so so much.
