Thousands of New Videos!

Videos are one of the most engaging and visual types of content. As part of our efforts to make the site even more fun to use, we are bringing in videos from interesting channels on AOL On, including sports, food, health, autos, pets, video games, style videos, and more!

With 5,000 videos soon to be available at your fingertips, we’re sure you’ll be watching ShopYourWay just as much as to Downton Abbey.

Got a Question? Ask Directly

There’s a new way to ask a question, and it’s directly from your profile page.

If you have a question you need answered, you can now ask it, comment on it, or answer another question by clicking on the “Questions” tab on your profile.

Create a Catalog on Your Android

We know how much you love creating catalogs – a lot! We’re now bringing this feature to mobile devices so you can create catalogs on the go.

That’s right, we’re giving you the capability to create and display catalogs directly from your Android device. You’ll also be able to easily explore other catalogs while you create, edit, and add items to your own.

It’s fun, super easy, and impossible to stop once you start (but then again, why would you want to?).

Toggle to Your Tag

In our efforts to enhance ShopYourWay as a place to build community, we are connecting the pages you manage to your page followers’ recent activity.

Now when you toggle between your profile and different pages, your page’s top navigation bar is streamlined specifically for that page. We’ve gotten rid of individual Messages, Rewards, and Cart tabs, and left what’s really important—Notifications.

When you switch page identities, you’ll now see that at the top menu bar, the only thing that’s on your menu is your page and Notifications.

Go ahead, click on the notifications button. You’ll be directed to your entire page’s recent activity, which is listed by date, and broken further down into follows, likes, and comments.  You can then click on the recent activity to see details, and even find out more info about what’s going on by clicking on “More Details.”

The new notifications is built for responsiveness, and so that you can easily see and access new activity on your page. What’s more is that you’ll even get a little notification about notifications to always keep you updated!
