If you are reading this post you may have already noticed few things different to this Blog. With growing popularity of social media such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as our world wide presence we decided to add few cool features to help the message get out there quicker and stronger.
On the top right you may see a Google Translate bar. All of our non-English speakers may appreciate this tool. Please look at Google Translate as a work in progress tool. Some languages or articles are spot on, while others are not so much. The tool is getting better every day and maybe in the future will be good enough to do an error proof translation. But, until then use it to get the sense and better understanding of the topic we are are covering in the post.
Right below the post you may now see a star rating for the post. This way you can give us your instant feedback. With this tool we will be able to report the topics of your interest and learn from it. Off course, the more popular subject and rating is the more similar areas we will try to cover. Other way to look at it is to virtually “tip your server”. If you are happy with what you are getting please tell us so.
Slightly below the Star rating widget, there is another tool that basically link the post to a similar previous posts. I have to admit, I am not sure how the linkage is being determined, but suspect there is some smart gremlin running inside, reading the post and deciding what links to what. If you have better explanation please share it with us.
Even further down, there are few buttons which allow you to tweet (Twitter) the post or Like (Facebook) the post. If you like it or you think it’s worth sharing, then don’t be shy. Just click it!
Unlike other “Like” under post, the Like at the left side is used if you like Being Civil Blog Facebook page. Yes, we do have Facebook page! Please use these addition and help us spread the word. Help us get the cool tips and ideas get further than our closed community. Evangelize and educate!
