Feature update: Repost and follower notifications

We’re happy to announce that ‘repost’ is now a native feature on Alpha as well as in the API.  Clicking the little inter-locking arrows icon on the right side of someone else’s post will automatically share that post on your profile for your followers to see. Gone are the days of using copy & paste to reverberate an interesting post.

Oh, and we also made the ‘Star’ bigger and, thus, easier to love a post.

Another feature we’ve added to App.net is follower notifications.  You will now receive periodic email notifications alerting you that another awesome ADN user wants to know what you have to say.  You can edit your notification settings on your ‘My Settings’ page.

We will continue to keep you updated on new features as they come out.  If you have any questions or comments please contact us.
