As we said recently, Nokia Connects has come a long way in the last few years, starting as “word on the blog” and evolving to the current Nokia Connects via WOMWorld/Nokia. Along the way we have made a lot of friends and seen a lot of changes, both at Nokia, in the mobile industry and in social media.
To reflect those changes we’ve reviewed the design of the site but more importantly we want to be broader in our appeal, we want to show Nokia’s viewpoint on the world around us. So, along with Nokia-related topics, we aim to bring you great tech, great innovation and great creativity from all over the world and all walks of life. We hope this will nicely complement your daily dose of inspirational content, independent of the source.
We also have introduced 4 RSS feeds to cater to your likings. If you had a subscription on RSS to the previous Nokia Connects.com chances are you are now on the “everything” feed and so you’re seeing all our content. If that doesn’t suit you then it might be better to switch to the tech feed, the creativity feed or the innovation feed.
‘But what if I only want to read Nokia related content?’ I hear you cry! Well don’t worry, we’ve heard that feedback and so plan to create a “Nokia only” RSS to cover you too, we will share the link on Twitter and add it to the site once it’s ready.
‘And what about those Facebook comments?’ Yup, we did it, we took the plunge and implemented Facebook as the comment authentication system for the site. Why? We wanted to make all the strong/valuable comments/viewpoints shareable and invite more real time dialogue within and outside the existing community. Plus, put a face next to the message. And there are other options for you to log in and leave a comment if you are logged out of Facebook.
Are we right? Well we’re still figuring that out, a lot of people have very strong opinions on the matter and we will continue to look at the impact this new commenting feature has on site, and react accordingly. In the meantime, please send us your feedback. We value your time and input.
