B.C. Green Web Community Adds New Ways to Share
Vancouver-based web community start-up - happyfrog.ca - releases social networking features for green minded enthusiasts
*** Sharing your eco-smarts ***
In the beginning, happyfrog.ca was created to help green-minded citizens find businesses and organizations which fit their values and displayed the results sorted by proximity to conserve transportation resources.
Then, happyfrog invited the public to add reviews to the thousands of listings, as well as engage in a community Q&A project to share tips and solve problems.
Now, all the "frogs" can auto-magically share their green favourites with the public with Myhappyfrog with a unique address to share with friends.
Members can now see all the reviews, questions & answers, and blog posts they've submitted so far via a personal address which looks something like this: http://happyfrog.ca/user/daveo
*** New sharing tools ***
* Show off your favourites
Members can add any listing as a "favourite" to share their preferred coffee shop, yoga studio, or organic market with the public and then add a badge to their blog or site to let people know about their happyfrog page.
* Meet new friends
Outreach to talented, interesting people seeking to exchange tips, share best practices, or get involved in new activities. Members can add pals and see their blog posts and other content right on their happyfrog page.
* Write a blog article
Have something to say? Members can step up and let it out on their happyfrog blog. They'll enjoy an instant audience, a unique address and RSS feed, and their best stuff will be promoted to the "Frogblog" for even more readers (and accolades).
* Share your knowledge
User's brilliantly written reviews, probing questions and wise answers are now grouped together on your personal page to show off your wisdom and show people your contributions for fame and fortune.
*** Getting Started ***
Check out the Myhappyfrog help desk with annotated screenshots and step by step instructions to use each of the new tools.
*** What's next? ***
Many frogs and listed businesses and group already have a blog, and some bloggers only write about happyfrog relevant content on occasion, so we are crafting a way to import your feed and display on your Myhappyfrog page or directory listing page.
