    logged in users will receive notifications from their network, such as posts created or recommended, replying to a comment, etc.
  • No content moderation pre-publishing:
    instead of having an admin approve the content, now each post goes online immediately, and the community can flag down and report inappropriate content.
  • Communities:
    organizations can have members in the website, and all content from their members will also show on the organization’s profile
  • Quick Posts:
    a new type of content, ideal for short and concise information, it displays directly in the content feed.
  • Links:
    all content types can also be added as “links”, that is, instead of having to copy/paste content from other websites, you can simply embed their link directly in this website.
  • Extracts of important information:
    any user can extract the really important, meaningful bits of information from each post. These extracts will show in the Content feed, alleviating the need for each user to click on each single article to understand what it is about.
