New story workflow:
If you are a regular user the first thing you may notice is that our button labeled ‘opinions’ has been removed. To access the user created content survey a.k.a. Surv™ all you have to do is click the story title, or the ‘surv it’ button. This action takes you to our details page where you can take the Surv™ and review results. To access the source content locate and click the button that says ‘read-full-story.’ This action takes you to the story on the source website. The “read-full-story” button can be found on Survcast.com summary pages that display lists of stories and on detail pages, which include the Surv™ for each story. We include this button on our summary lists so that you can link to the source content at any time without having to access the detail page first. You can review the location of these buttons in the image associated with this post.
Each story details page that includes the user created Surv™ now includes a short link. This feature converts the details page long URL into a short URL. This makes it easier to share the Surv™ on social networking sites and to embedded a link to the Surv™ within content such as blog posts. To locate the link look for the ‘short link’ label click it to expose the link, copy the link next to the label and past it wherever you want.
We made these changes and additions to help our users locate and share Survs™ more often while supporting ways for them to easily access the source content. The more people learn about the power of community controlled news analysis provided by Survcast.com the sooner our Surv it™ process can help benefit society by measuring and exposing public opinion about popular subjects.
