I first blogged about Empire avenue 10 months ago – when I had just started. Back then I didn’t realise the impact it would have on my social media strategies, networks and more importantly I that would find a fantastic community of people that now mean a great deal to me.
Anyway – I digress…
Empire Avenue have relaunched a new design – which is said to engage you more with your social networks.
Most people that “play” Empire avenue have always used it to engage and connect with other users, moving that to their other networks. I think previously that was the problem, that, people that don’t play Empire Avenue do not see it this way at all. Empire avenue for me, is primarily not a game but is a way to connect and engage with a brillant community of “players”. Empire avenue is fun to play but it should also be part of your social media strategy. It is possible to connect, interact and engage with clients and/or customers, contacts and like-minded people to help and share, when using this tool correctly.
Empire avenue are trying to make this more perceptible by supposedly making it easier to connect via their new headings expand, engage and evaluate.
New headings on Empire Avenue
- Expand – Get more followers
- Engage – Talk to your followers
- Evaluate – Measure Your success
How to endorse other users blogs
One thing I haven’t found yet – is an easy way to see mentions – you can see who’s mentioned you on your notifications page and the engaged page but not what they said On the engaged page, you can click the mention but you have to scroll through all of their mentions to see your own. Their must be an easier way, has anyone found it?
People were discussing that they couldn’t find the edit public profile so that you can change your bio – this is in Account settings – privacy – at the bottom it says Customize your public profile. However there is a bug that logs me out when I click it. Not sure if that will be the same with you.
All in all, apart from the bugs – I do like the new design, it will take a bit of getting use to, as always with something new. We all had our shortcuts and ways to do things which are now going to be different, but remember we are all in the same boat or avenue. I do think that this new design will help new players see right away what Empire Avenue is for, and that is to expand, engage and evaluate your social networks!
