You may have noticed some changes to the site today. I’ve had the same layout for more than a year and wanted to change things up a bit. The Mets should really try the same as well. There are some things that I’ve been doing with the site over the last year that just didn’t fit into the layout that I was using. So it was time for a change.
You’ll notice my Twitter and Facebook profiles are much more prominent now. That’s something that’s developed over the last year along with the site.
The site is also less complex now making it faster to load in your browser. That was a big priority for me. The sophistication of the previous layout didn’t lend itself to speed.
I hope you like the changes and it’s still somewhat in progress. Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
I implemented a change to the site today that allows you to log in and post comments to the site utilizing your Facebook ID instead of having to create separate login for this site. It just simplifies things so you don’t need to worry about different ID’s and passwords. Your Facebook ID will be set up as a valid user on my site.
The other nice thing about this implementation is that it allows you to invite your friends to The Mets Report. You can see on the right sidebar that you can see other members of the Facebook community that have visited and your comments can be posted directly to your Facebook wall.
I hope that this proves to be beneficial to everyone and I’d like to hear your feedback. Please comment below if you have an opinion on this.
For those of you that are social media fans like myself, you can follow me on Twitter and Facebook. Both offer a great opportunity for enhanced interaction.
