Making myVidster more social!
Social Network Linking (Beta)
Users can connect their social network accounts (Facebook/Twitter) to myVidster so that other users in your social networks can find and follow you. myVidster will automatically find other users in your social networks that are using myVidster as well! Also out of curiosity myVidster will not auto post to your social networks. This feature is in beta, please provide feedback and report any issues.
After you have linked your social network account(s) to myVidster you can use your profile photos for is to reduce redundancy. myVidster directly links to the photo from your social network so that if you decide to change it (which most people do regularly) you will not have to updated your photo on myVidster.
The social sharing buttons have been available on myVidster for some time. Recently I have made a few updates to make them more useful. When you bookmark a video, the confirmation page now gives you the option to share your video bookmark with your social networks (Facebook, Twitter, etc). Before you would bookmark the video then navigate to the video bookmark page to do this. I have also added the tumblr share button.
The last few weeks have been busy and I am continuing my work with improving site performance (expect faster page load speed during peak hours) and solving issues. Well its time to have another cup of coffee and back to work!
