It’s Your Choice to Make

The real secret in this age of way-too-much-information is filtering and sorting. That’s what you need to master: how to turn that huge tidal wave of data into neatly divided small streams of info.

That’s what we’re about this week. Sorting and filtering, helping you see exactly what you want to see.

Here we go: first thing’s first – catalogs. Or to be more precise, catalogs in pages. One of the great things about ShopYourWay is the ability to organize items relevant to a store or brand page in catalogs. The page manager can do it – and so can any follower of the page.

Say you go to Kmart’s brand page, and take a look at the catalogs. Some of them were created by the page manager, others by users. Not the same thing, right? Click on the arrow on the right and choose what you’d like to see – community catalogs, or those created by the brand manager. Nifty, isn’t it?

Same thing with questions. What would you like to see – questions created by fellow shoppers, or by the page manager? Now you can easily choose.

Remember infographics? The lovely format which lets you learn lots of new stuff about the brand or item by using visual means? Well now it’s on our product pages as well. Check out the product you want and see how many people of a certain age group or gender are interested in it as well.

And last but not least – one of the key factors to all the stuff we listed above is following. Following a cool fellow shopper, a brand you like or a catalog you find interesting. The more stuff you follow, the more interesting your feed will become.

So – in order to make following easier we added it to the hover options. See something you like? Hover your mouse cursor over it, and check out the elegant little menu of actions that magically appears. If you can follow the item, a follow option will be there. One click and you’re done.

That’s it for now. Stay tuned for some surprises next week!
