It’s my great pleasure to announce the immediate availability of PeepSo 1.8.10. The release was delayed for a couple of days which we communicated on our community. We found some issues and decided NOT to release until it’s fixed. Sorry for the delay but we wouldn’t be able to live with ourselves, if we just decided to release something we clearly knew was broken. Everything finally fell into place and I’m happy to be able to make this release. Read more

Remember MySpace? It used to be the king of social media, the platform that other social media platforms wanted to be.

Every successful business has a secret ingredient.

It’s encouragement to keep posting and keep interacting.
When even a simple “like” can trigger a notification, small interactions can have powerful effects on the life of your community. Keep your notifications turned on and you’ll keep people coming back.
That’s all for now! Next time, a tricky topic: policing your community.
