A quick recap of some recent updates to Commonlounge:
While Commonlounge was designed as a mobile-first product, we noticed majority of you spend a lot of time on it on a desktop. Hence we have been adding a bunch of niceties for our desktop users:
- Community Sidebar: We compressed the Community Info page into a sidebar on the right side of each community page so that all the information about a community you need (like info, associated topics, leaderboard, channels, related communities etc.) is always accessible quickly.
- Email Invite from community sidebar: Since we get more space to work with in the sidebar, we could made it easier for you to send an email invite to your friends right from the community's sidebar. Here's what it looks like:
- Full screen images: For images that might contain useful stuff you may want to take a better look at, we have added the ability to view them on the full screen!
Whenever we are planning to start new communities, we first go back to the interests you chose to follow after signing up and see what topics the most people are interested in that we don't have a community for. We saw a lot of you were interested in emerging tech - so we started 3 brand new communities where we will be discussing exciting new developments in these areas, as well as bring in people from the industry for interview sessions:
