We have received some great feedback from current and prospective members re: enhancing overall experience on the site. Accordingly, the features described below — which will facilitate the process of new members coming on board, writing actively, and meeting one another on the site — are currently being developed and will be completed within a week:
1) Facebook integration. New members will have the option to sign up via Facebook, and existing members can log in via Facebook. **Nothing from TruConnection will post on Facebook walls. ** We are exploring LinkedIn integration as well.
2) Registration outside NYC / Boston area. To date, we have been open to new members in New York City and Boston area. For members outside these two regions, there is now an option on the registration form to leave name / email address / city. Once we have significant interest in your city, we will launch there.
3) First Word. For new members, the option to write an intro about themselves prior to gaining full access to the site, encouraging members from the get-go to start writing and sharing on the site.
4) Social sharing on blog posts. The ability to share each individual blog post, rather than just the blog itself.
As TruConnection continues to grow, more and more members are finding it a refreshing change from mainstream dating sites. Rather that relying on detailed profiles, dating questionnaires, and matching algorithms, TruConnection.com operates under the premise that what you write (or how you express yourself creatively through artwork or photography) + your photo is the best first impression when meeting online, and the strongest foundation for a meaningful connection.
Stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks.
