Over the last couple of weeks our team worked on several small bug fixes and improvements that went live yesterday on GirlsAskGuys. Some of them are things you can’t see, so I won’t bore you with technical details even though it’s definitely important to keep things working well under the hood.
The highlights of this update are two new features we hope you’ll enjoy using: the ability to invite other people to share opinions on your questions and browser notifications. Here’s what you need to know:
As nice is it can be to go back to GirlsAskGuys and find a number of opinions and replies waiting for you, we believe timely responses can make interactions and the whole experience more interesting for our community.
So we now support instant notifications on two of the most popular web browsers: Firefox and Chrome. You can turn it on by visiting the Settings page and looking for “Browser notifications” in the “Notifications” section. Just click the “Manage” button and you should be all set up.
You can also go back there at any time to disable the notifications if you need. But please don’t.
Get more opinions
The other feature we introduced to GirlsAskGuys is the ability to invite someone to share an opinion on your question. Some of you already did that by mentioning people, so we took the hint and made the whole process easier.
You can do that from your question page either by using the menu accessible via the three vertical dots on the right upper corner of the question section or by clicking the “Invite Friends” button at the end of the page. Then it’s just a matter of adding the people you think would have a great opinion on that subject and hit “Invite Now” to send them a notification.
Alternatively, you can do it from another member’s profile page or from your own Follows page. Just choose “Invite to My Question” and then select from one of your open questions.
This is it for now. We’re already working on the next update, but I won’t give any spoilers. See you around!
