Excitement and anticipation fills gifting HQ whilst the team eagerly await the live release of V.0.7 – and, as our CTO announces ‘I’m scared – let’s do it!’ we are all braced for the sparkly new version of shareagift.com
Since we launched (it’s nearly our one month anniversary!), we have been learning from what our current users are doing on the site and making adjustments based on their feedback. Our development and design team have been hard at work responding quickly to all our users suggestions and have created lots of cool new features to make the users journey as seamless as possible.
Here at shareagift, we like to use Facebook just as much as our users do, so our development team have added lots of snazzy Facebook integration features. You can now sign up to shareagift just by logging into your Facebook account – this means that you don’t need to worry about filling out a whole new profile. Instead, the information is imported directly from Facebook – including your photograph! Your friends will now immediately recognise who has sent them a giftpage, making it quicker, easier and much more fun to make contributions using shareagift.com.
What’s more, you can even send your giftpage to your Facebook friends using the Facebook ‘Send’ button – this means your friends will receive a private message with your giftpage. By using the private message facility, the giftpage remains hidden from the recipient (avoiding any spoiled surprises!) whilst enabling your friends to contribute directly from the link.
And, what has already been dubbed as “beautifully designed” by The Next Web, our uber creative graphic designer has given the security framework a facelift too! No dull blank fields to fill out, instead a friendly series of light boxes, enabling you to create an account manually or with Facebook.
Slight tweaks have also been made to the giftpage itself – your friends can now see who else has been invited to contribute to the page so every one knows who they are buying a joint gift with. We are working on refining this even further to include the pictures of the invitees for the ultimate social gifting experience… watch this space!
And, as work rapidly begins on V.0.8, which includes deeper Facebook integration and a revised My Profile section, we welcome all comments and suggestions you may have. Just click the left-hand ‘Feedback’ tab on the site to let us know what you think to help us make shareagift the site you want!
So, shareagift.com v.0.7 has landed. Like it, share it, use it!
