Image Cloud -- Manage and Brand your Social Media Images

By Rob | 2 Jul 2012, 10:00am | Category: Development

Today I'm excited to announce the launch of Image cloud. Our new tool allows you to host, publish and brand all your images on a single platform.

So what sets Image Cloud apart from other image hosting tools? Well, Image Cloud allows you to customise your image landing page with your own branding. Publish an image to Twitter or Facebook and instead of people seeing your image surrounded by adverts or someone else's branding they see it surronded by your's.

Sounds cool. But that's not all. We're also giving all our users 1GB of space which is well over 1,000 images each. So you better get your camera ready. And if you want more I'm sure we can arrange that...

You can see the first image I published to Image cloud here... Note it's of me and I've been Ill this weekend so it ain't pretty -- but my Mum still thinks I'm beautiful...

In addition to this we have also rolled out Friend Memory. This tool remembers who you have communicated with previously and prompts you with their details next time you wish to communicate with them. It's currently live within our Social Hub but we will extend it to the rest of our site in the coming weeks.

We hope you like our new tools. And if you have any suggestions to improve things please let us know at [email protected] or @StatusPeople.

And if you still haven't got a StatusPeople yet account sign up today, it's free for 30 Days.

Speak soon.

Time to integrate with StatusPeople

By Rob | 20 Feb 2012, 10:00am | Category: Development

Today I am pleased to announce the release of our API into Beta. This is an important moment for StatusPeople as it signifies the completion of our core platform. 

The API is RESTful and very simple to use. It returns data in both XML and JSON format. Intially we have released three requests. They allow you to create Short URLs and retrieve click stats for the URLs you create.

We aim to expand the number of requests significantly over the next month or two -- so watch this space...

You can access the API documentation within our platform's Help section. And just to prove how simple and easy it is to use here is an example request...

We would love to hear your feedback on this. So if you have any thoughts please email us at [email protected] or Tweet us @StatusPeople.

And of course, if you're not a StatusPeople user yet you can sign up for free now.

Speak soon.

Campaign Reports -- Gain Insights on Your Scheduled Posts

By Rob | 10 Feb 2012, 09:00am | Category: Development

We've been testing our campaign tools for the last two months. Allowing you to schedule messages to both Twitter and Facebook. And today we have added Campaign Reports to our platform.

This means you can now group Tweets and Posts into a Campaign and see results they produce.

We report on clicks, mentions, retweets, likes and comments. All the things that will help you fine tune your social media message. We also plot the clicks on a chart. So you can see when your followers are interacting with you.

We hope you like this addition to our platform. And if you haven't tried us out yet you can sign up for free.

Also if you have any feedback let us know at [email protected] or tweet us @statuspeople.

Feed Templates -- Post Blogs to Twitter with Ease

By Rob | 16 Jan 2012, 09:00am | Category: Development

One of StatusPeople's main features is the ability to manage your Twitter stream and RSS feeds in one place. We also allow you to cross post your Feed posts to Twitter both automatically and with a single click.

But to improve this process, and give you more control over how your Feeds look on Twitter, we have created Feed Templates.

Feed Templates allow you to define how your Feed posts will appear on Twitter when they are auto or manually posted. They work using merge tags -- in the same way you merge user data into an email.

Here's an example of a Mashable blog post...

Post Title: Inside the Recruiter’s Head: What He’s Really Asking You During the Interview
Post Link: http://mashable.com/2012/01/15/interview-questions-decoded/

Template...

Blog: [~Title~] [~Link~] via @Mashable #SocialMedia

Result...

Blog: Inside the Recruiter’s Head: What He’s Really Asking You During the Interview t.co/cxbMfTpK via @Mashable #SocialMedia

See, simple, you have complete control. And you can create individual templates for all your Feeds. 

We hope you find this a useful addition to the StatusPeople toolset. And if you have any feed back please let us know at [email protected] or on Twitter @StatusPeople.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts. And if you haven't signed up for a StatusPeople account yet you can do so here for free.

Reports are complete... For now at least...

By Rob | 28 Oct 2011, 10:00am | Category: Development

As the title says our reports development is now complete.  Which is great news and means you can now view Clicks, Minions, Twitter and Facebook reports.

In addition we've also begun to track your social network metrics over time. So you can see whether you have been gaining or losing Followers. And whether your Page Likes have begun to rocket...

We have also begun to role out our Minions' loyalty system. So now everytime you publish a post or tweet through our system it will help your Minion population grow. And the more Minions you have the more free stuff we will give you.

We will be adding plenty of Minions' functionality over the next few weeks and we have some big ideas for email -- so watch this space.

And if you haven't already signed up for one of our free Beta accounts you can do so here. We would also love any feedback you can give us, so let us know @StatusPeople or on our Facebook Page.

Speak soon.
