This past October we quietly launched our beta version of iZoca.com. With this latest release we have provided more information about how people are using iZoca to connect, collaborate and coordinate with multiple groups in their lives with our expanded “learn more” page. Our latest feature is group document storage and viewing. Depending upon how your group is organized you can share your documents publicly or privately. Groups now have a variety of useful tools to help their members communicate with each other. These features include document sharing, photo sharing, calendaring, discussions and more.
Since the release we now have over 600 registered groups on iZoca and that number is growing every day. These groups range from informal social groups to national non profit organizations and businesses. It only takes a few minutes to set up a group and invite others to join and iZoca’s ease of group creation has encouraged people from across the United States and beyond to use our platform.
We appreciate your continued use of iZoca.com and look forward to future announcements on our development efforts!
Today iZoca launched new architecture that provides groups the option to have content such as photos, discussions and events available to everyone and anyone, even those who are not members of iZoca. This “public page” release is important because now individuals can participate in groups that have both private and public content. iZoca’s unique group networking architecture provides members the ability to stay connected and up-to-date with all their groups through the use of tools including the iZoca Calendar.
Groups and organizations can now make group content on iZoca available to the public to promote their mission, products and services. Individuals are currently using iZoca groups to communicate with others of similar interest and now with this latest upgrade, people browsing to iZoca can explore these groups and obtain information about topics and discussions that interest them. If they would then like to participate in these groups they can simply sign up for iZoca and join.
Now on iZoca, members can join groups with a variety of privacy settings and strategically target their information. For example, family photos from last week’s picnic can be shared privately with your family, discussions about a block party can be shared solely with your neighbors and Jimmy Buffet’s touring schedule can be made public for all to view and enjoy. Information is delivered to iZoca members in an easy to use format to keep them up-to-date and connected to the groups of people in their lives. We invite you to join iZoca and begin exploring new ways to connect your world!
Some people like to receive notifications to their email within seconds of a new iZoca discussion or message being posted and others like to be contacted once a day. There are others who prefer to visit iZoca but not be notified via email to find out new stuff about their groups.
We have listened to your feedback about email notifications and now the choice is yours about how you receive it. You have an option to receive daily and weekly digests to stay updated with all your group activities. To configure your options for digests and notifications:
- Click on the “settings” link located in the upper right corner of the screen.
- Click on the tab that reads “notifications.”
The first section deals with personal notifications for messages and invitations. Just click the box if you’d like to be notified. You can choose your group notification options and even be notified when new members join!
We strive to create and refine our platform and hope you enjoy this new feature!
