Wow, a lot has happened since we launched a little over a week ago! We have seen tremendous coverage across the internet, and to this day we are seeing more and more people discover and join in on the conversations that they care about most. We want to take a moment and thank you for taking part in our public beta! Over the last week we have received many suggestions and ideas on how we can improve, we are implementing many of these ideas! We wanted to take a moment and talk a little about some of the many features and options that are not available yet. Below is an overview of some different ideas that we are currently working!

This feature will allow users the ability to save search terms and queries for retrieval in the future. This feature will also be used in conjunction with other tools and options. “Saved Searches” will be available to subscription based users only.

RSS Feeds

This feature will provide RSS Feeds for each search term that can be fed into a feed reader or other application. RSS Feeds will be available to subscription based users only.

Get the ball rolling…

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

Rae Hoffman just wrote a great piece titled “How to Promote a Brand New Blog“. Rae talks about some great tactics to get a new blog or site some needed publicity. Rae lays out the following as needed things to do to get the ball rolling on that new site:

  • Create Promos and Trailers
  • Do Guest Appearances
  • Seek Out Sponsorships and Buzz Events
  • Form “Street Teams”

Of course I am not going to tell you everything that Rae said, go read it for your self! But, I will say that I think all of her advice is great stuff that I will be using to promote WhosTalkin? In fact, I already have a few Promos and Trailers that you should see on this blog and accross the web.
