We’ve been busy with development and bug-fixing since the new-look website for tCn – the Construction Network – first went live in mid August, and the numbers joining the network have started to climb again after the summer break.
Any day now, we will have new functionality that will allow organisations to send email invitations with exclusive invitation codes that provide the recipients with fast-track access to tCn (ie: without having to be individually approved by the tCn team). We expect this will accelerate the rate of growth in tCn.
If you’ve visited the site recently, you will hopefully have noticed a few new bells and whistles. Did you know you can now:
- upload images to your profile
- create a listing for your company
- add details of forthcoming industry events, and
- start your own tCn blog (existing bloggers can, of course, also set up an RSS feed from their own blog(s) direct to their tCn profile)
Companies can also upgrade from basic accounts to get advanced functionality allowing you to create polls and to upload articles and videos; as a premium corporate subscriber, you could create dedicated RSS feeds, list products and services, and create communities for your own employees, customers, members, etc.
For Twitter users, in addition to our own @tCnTweets channel, we’ve created a @tcnfeeds Twitter channel for people who want to follow announcements about joining companies, new articles, future events, community projects, etc.
We hope you find these changes useful and we welcome any feedback (you can comment below, send us a tweet to @tCntweets, or even email us at firstname.lastname@example.org)
