Happy weekend, everybody!
Here’s just a quick update to let you know what we’re working on. This morning we already fixed a bug that prevented you from seeing the photos in user photo albums.
Apart from that, the main task at the moment is to improve discoverability of other user profiles and dating. In other words, we want to make it easier and more fun to find who’s on Flokkr and also enable users to better present themselves on their user profiles by making profile editing and picture uploads easier and more fun, too.
Here’s the more technical bit: In order for us to innovate faster, we need to make some changes to the web app. Over the next days, weeks and months we will transition parts of the actual web app to the main Flokkr web portal. You may have noticed that we already have two different kinds of pages, easiest to identify by their colour schemes: There are pages with a dark grey background (e.g. flokkr.com, flokkr.com/places, flokkr.com/settings) and those with a light grey background – that’s were you land when you log in with your Flokkr account, including Flokks, Radar, Chat and profiles. It turned out that we are more flexible in terms of new features, updates and innovation using the “dark grey” part of flokkr.com.
That means for you, during the transition period you may find yourself sometimes on the current ”light” part of the website and more and more often on the ”dark” part. We will try our best to make the transition as smooth as possible. The goal is to have only one unified website at the that does everything.
I hope you’re all looking forward to more features and improved usability! Thanks for being with us!
