  • Real-Time Author Alerts Are Here! 2 comments
    Jun 17, 2014 12:35 PM

    As many of you have no doubt already heard, we rolled out real-time author alerts today! This means users will now be able to get an e-mail alert when their favorite contributors publish an article. Here's a snapshot of how this feature appears at the bottom of articles (the option to get alerts is also present at the top of article pages):

    This is a big step for contributor success as it extends our extremely successful real-time alerts system to our wonderful contributor base. If the success of our alerts product is any indication, this new feature should be a very powerful lever in terms of contributor brand building. For more on this, please see my forum post here -- note also that the project manager for this initiative, Adena Goldberger, is answering questions in the thread.

    I'd love to hear your thoughts on this feature either here, in the forum, or via e-mail.

    Thanks for the new feature. I like it. What would save time for me is a daily email with all comments of the authors I am following.

  • I guess I need to be thankful for something today. Thankful for DJ, Eli, my team(s), and Seeking Alpha. I think that about covers it. :)
