What's in store for Yahoo! Groups
- Hi everyone; it has been some time since we've announced what we
have planned for the Yahoo! Groups community, so I thought I'd
outline our plans for 2008.
Over the past few months, the Groups Team has been hard at work
strengthening and improving our existing systems, while
simultaneously innovating and developing new features and options.
What's new now
So far, we have released the following to the site:
An entirely new search and browse system. This new system fixes a
number of known issues, makes search updates much faster, and
improves the sort order when you browse for groups (many
enhancements related to this release were highlighted in the recent
post called Yahoo! Groups: How long does it really take).
A new "Groups Lab" initiative which consists of a team of folks
who work to create features within Groups that can be customized by
moderators to fit the specific needs of their group. The People Map
is an example of a feature that was developed by this team.
A new technology platform for the site (not quite fully released).
We are changing every page of the site but doing so in a way that
won't disrupt your existing experience. This new platform will allow
us to release features much faster than ever before.
What's to come
