An Update for The Buddhist Centre Online

Wed, 10 Jul, 2013 - 20:51

You may have noticed today that some things about the site have changed. If we were an App on your computer or phone (which isn’t a bad way to think about it) this would be version 1.5 or thereabouts! The Buddhist Centre Online has been up and running in what we consider its basic form (version 1.0) for just over a year, and we’ve had a proper home page for six months now. So it was time to take stock...

Tip No. 5: Getting the most out of your spaces

Fri, 13 Jul, 2012 - 23:45

We’ve been up and running for a month or so properly now and our To Do list is already as long as all our arms laid end to end! It’s amazing hearing feedback and people’s excitements and frustrations at what they can and can’t (yet) do on our new platform. We’re committed to developing the site in line with how it’s actually being used, and while we can’t match Facebook quite yet, there’s still a lot...

Tip No. 4: Why Facebook isn't enough

Tip No. 4: Why Facebook isn't enough

Thu, 28 Jun, 2012 - 23:53

Facebook - you just can’t get away from it! Did you know that over 900 million people now actively use it? That means by ‘population’, Facebook is (sort of!) the world’s third largest country! And it’s a safe bet that soon enough more people will spend time on the mother of all social networks than live in any one nation… That’s quite a thought, and quite a new sort of connected global reality for...

Tip No.3: Involving the Sangha

Wed, 27 Jun, 2012 - 00:04

For today’s tip I wanted to talk about the why of The Buddhist Centre Online with regard to local Centres. We’ve already had some really enthusiastic sign-ups for the space, which is great for us as we view this as a very long-term project indeed! We’re just at the start of what we hope will be quite a shift in the way all of us see our collective work in spreading the Dharma around the world and serving...

Tip No. 2: Invisible Groups and Order-only Groups...

Tip No. 2: Invisible Groups and Order-only Groups...

Wed, 20 Jun, 2012 - 20:39

We’ve had a few enquiries about this, so I thought I’d write a tip about how to get the most out of Groups on your Project and still keep some things completely private.

As you’ll recall from our last tip, unlike Projects (which are always visible and completely public so anyone can ‘follow’ anytime), we’ve set up Groups so they are always visible but private by default. That means people need to click ’+ join’ to...

Tip No.1: 'About' Pages & Introduction

Wed, 13 Jun, 2012 - 18:59

Hi all! We’ve been up and running for a week or so and we’ve had plenty of thoughts already about how we can improve things for you as you get your Projects and Groups going! We’re also playing catch-up a bit in giving you information that can help you make the most of the site, so I’ll be making a few posts in the coming weeks offfering tips for how to use the social network to attract users...
