Improving Our Speed…
We try to be good listeners here at Sears Social – when you tell us about the things you own, want or are generally interested in, we take note and then seek out more stuff you’ll enjoy (and we’ve got a lot of stuff!).
Recently, we challenged ourselves to do this even faster, so we now proudly unveil our lightning-quick (almost) recommendations. Try it out – tell us about a product you own, like or want and immediately see recommended products in your newsfeed.
Although we listen well, we’ve been forgetful at times… like that time we recommended a product you already told us you liked or owned? Well, no more! Starting this week, you’ll no longer see recommendations in your newsfeed for products you’ve previously interacted with. Whew, what a relief!
That’s Sooo Yesterday
Love those newsfeed stories about top-selling products? Under-whelmed when you see the same top-selling product 2 days in a row? Yup, we fixed that too!
Now, Where Did I Put That…?
You know that anxious feeling you get when something is missing and you just cannot remember where you’ve put it? Rest assured that this will never again happen in your Sears Social newsfeed because we’ve added an “undo” option for stories you’ve just hidden. Not only do we help you find hidden stories, we even tell you when stories are missing from your feed because of “hide” filters you previously selected. You can see and manage your hide filters on the Recent Activity Filters tab on your Settings page.
We wish we could offer you a similar solution for missing socks, keys and homework!
Knitter, Baker, Sleeper, Sailor…
If your passion is creating works of art from wood, yarn or even food, you’re in luck! We’ve got 6 new cliques where creative types can hang out and share ideas.
And, adding to our eclectic mix, this week we also launched cliques for lovers of animals, water, the news and all things sleep-related.
We’re not done yet… watch out for more cliques coming your way soon!
