Release Today April 21st!

CHOW HQ | Apr 21, 2010 12:59 PM

Hi Chowhounds-
We pushed a release today and wanted to let you know of a couple new features that are available.

Updates and Fixes to Photo Uploading on the Boards-
The thumbnails are bigger! No more undecipherable images. And when you click one of the images, you’ll see a gallery of photos from that post. Clicking through to the user’s photos shows them all tiled. We’ve also made it easier to upload.

Facebook 'Like' Feature on Restaurants and Recipes-
Facebook asked that CHOW be one of the beta partners for their new “Like” feature. On all videos, stories, recipes, and restaurant pages there’s now a Like button at the top. If you like something — and we hope you do -- in the general sense and the Facebook sense — you can click the button and it will post to your Facebook wall with a comment if you’ve made one. We are very excited about how Facebook users will now be able to share CHOW content so easily.

Facebook Activity Widget –
On the home page we will be showcasing Facebook users’ activity across the site. If you are a registered Facebook user, and logged in, you will be able to see your activity as well as your friends activities.

Restaurant Photos in Photo Galleries-
On restaurant pages, you can click a photo to see it in a big gallery format. Just click “back to restaurant” to get back to the main page.

Photo Gallery End Page-
When users get to the end of a recipe photo gallery we now offer suggestions of other galleries that you might like.
