Extra! Extra! New Bulletins on Sportsvite!
One of the hardest things to do on any social website is to actually connect with new people. There are so many accounts, and so many messages flying around, and you never know who will respond and who won’t. Enter Sportsvite’s brand new Bulletin Boards!
The Bulletin Boards are the fastest and easiest way to connect with other players on Sportsvite. You can post a message about needing a player for your team, finding a last-minute ringer, an activity partner for this weekend, or just that you’re available for games. You can even ask simple questions about sports, how to use features on Sportsvite, or anything else that comes to mind.
But this is no ordinary bulletin board. We’ve specially tailored the posting options to make it easier for you to find exactly what you’re looking for, and for users who read your post to quickly reply, request to join your team, or whatever else you’re hoping for.
Associate your team, event or league profile
When you create a new post, you can optionally associate it to your team, event, or league profile on Sportsvite. This way, people can quickly view your team, event or league profile, and request to join if they’re interested. No clicking through multiple pages or trying to find the right spot. It’s all one click away.
Need something on a specific date?
One of the problems with most bulletin boards is that once your post has been live for a while, it gets pushed down the list by newer posts and users are less likely to see it. Well, on the Sportsvite boards you don’t have to worry about getting buried thanks to the date needed feature.
Tell us what you need and when, and users will also be able to sort posts based on the date needed rather than the date posted. This way, your post bubbles back up to the top of the list as your game day approaches.
Easily publish posts to other sites
There are so many social sites these days, it’s hard to know where to post your stuff. So we’ve added some tools to make the process easier for you. We’ll help you publish your post to Facebook or Twitter with one click, or give you a quick tool to transfer the same post over to Craigslist. This way, you’ve got all the big boys covered.
