Question

  • 0

Given any new item added is only going to be in the new products feed for a few minutes I don't see any time advantage at all. The time advantage will happen with the non LL blog feeds where all SL marketing has moved to. Weekend mornings are good.

Has anyone looked in the new products feed? I completely lost interest in it. I liked the merchant created ad posts in the old xstreet forum. Those worked pretty well and you only saw ads a merchant that cared enough would post.

I expect only the most dedicated of shoppers would follow the feed, it is not particularly eye catching. Other than that I would imagine most people monitoring are people looking out for their own items. It would be interesting to get an idea of just how many people actually view the feed.

However a merchant posted ad on the old xstreet forum often caught my eye - enough to make me want to go look at the page. This hasn't happened on the few occasions that I have bothered with the feed.

I only looked at the new products feed once. It's not interesting at all and it doesn't make me want to go look at the product. A total waste in my opinion.

I do have to agree with that.

I mean ... i do like the fact that its a feed and saves us having to write out a new post, but its very unappealing as it is and the old forums did require people to make a bit of an effort with their new products posts. The fact that they had to make a bit of an effort usually meant they were worth looking at and could be a good source of spotting some cool new items.

Maybe if they improved that feed to have thumbnail pics it would be better. What would be even better still is if they could tie it in to the listing so that when someone listed a new item they had to tick a box and type a little description for it to show in the feed. At least then it would require a bit of effort on the merchants part and may avoid a flood of quick freebies that are quickly listed with no description. (Not that there is anything wrong with some freebies being listed in the feed, but i'd much rather people are forced to make a bit of an effort to make their items look and sound appealing so that the feed holds more value!)

Like Pearl, I only looked at the new feed once.  Too bad, I use to enjoy the ads posted by the merchants.
