Updates To LSU Status Bar
The new status update feature on the Land Surveyors United home page (and top of your profile) is a huge improvement to the flow of the network. This feature allows you to leave your status (of course), simultaneously send an update to twitter and facebook and watch your participation happen in real time!
Here are a couple of other things you can do with the new status update feature:
Comment Inline- When one of your fellow members makes a remark or starts a discussion forum, simply click on "Comment" or "favorite" right inside the status update module. If you click comment, you'll be able to leave your reply right there without having to leave the page.
Share links- If you have a link you'd like to share with the network, simply paste the URL into the update field..it will then ask you if you'd like to shorted the url. If you click yes, it will shorten the URL so that you have all the room you need to continue explaining what that link is about.
Facebook/Twitter Sync- Who wants to waste time visiting all of the social media sites just to get the words out? Not me! I sync my twitter account and facebook account with my status update so it goes everywhere at the same time.
Next week when the highly anticipated Android and Iphone versions of the network are released, this will make your life in the field as a surveyor a lot more fun and most importantly, you will be able to both find support and help other surveyors in real-time, from ANYWHERE!
