We continue to tinker under the hood of the Discourse software that runs OEG Connect to add useful features.
The newest includes a way to include social media links in your profile as well a new field to optionally enter a link for your organization/affiliation.
When you create a new account, these are available on the signup form:
Currently there are fields for Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook, but if there are other platforms we should include, just let us know (e.g. make a reply here!).
For all the entered fields, these show up on the “card” of any user (when click on the icon for a community member):
But he (and you) can update his/your profile at anytime via https://connect.oeglobal.org/my/preferences/profile
I’ve done that myself, so my card and profile feature links to my twitter and LinkedIn profilesmy profile.
Is this useful? Are there other features that would help you connect? Let us know.
