Rich has finished a few more mockups of the changes we’re making to support OpenSocial.
Since our last episode, he’s finished the Profile page. Take a look.
One thing (other than location data, which will return soon, promise) people have been missing since we upgraded Connect to the Mix JRuby code line is status. More people than you’d think used status and not just for Facebook or Twitter-type updates.
Rich planned to bring status back bigger and better than ever, but our plans changed a bit. Here’s his new take on status.
We had originally planned to allow users to add OpenSocial apps to both the Home and Profile pages. However, we’ve decided to keep it to Home only now, a la iGoogle.
We may enable apps for Profile eventually, but they do complicate the page a bit because you have to keep profile details at the top. leaving very little real estate for apps. Even Facebook, who pioneered this approach for their f8 platform apps, has reconsidered it in their redesign.
The only app that may make it on to the Profile is a badges app to show off certifications, affiliations, your blog, or I suppose any piece of flair you like.
Each image on Skitch has comments; we’re using the comments to kick around ideas and ask questions. If you want, you can too.
Or find the comments here. Rich keeps updating the mockups, which tends to bork up the links. So, let me know if you have issues.
Let us know what you think, or forever how your peace and be stuck with what we give you.
