So having been a member on here for quite a while now I still only know certain members by their username and thats about it.
We live in the times of social media and feel that as a forum we could do more to encourage it. I use a lot of social media tools in my work and it is very power and sometimes invaluable way to market myself and my business. It's all about networking!
I made a little mock up of something that I would think would work well in the forum...
Everybody who uses this forum does so one for one common reason, Audi. Plain and simple. I for one would love to be able to see more about the people behind the username in terms of what they write up on Twitter, post up on Instagram and YouTube especially if it has to do with anything Audi...
I see this little mod being handled within the User CP area. They literally type in their username for a cetain social media. I use timborrill throughout as mine. The forum then only shows the appropriate networks that they enter. So if they don't have an Instagram account, it doesn't show it. There are lots of tools made by these networks to allow a one-click "follow" or subscribe if they are already logged into that platform. One click, I now follow that person on Twitter or Instagram or Youtube.
I was toying with the idea of Facebook but realised that this is quite a personal platform wheras the ones suggested above are usually quite public. However for the Sponsors out there it would be awesome if we could have a LIKE our page ability in here!
Let me know your thoughts
