FROM ZOOTOO: NEW FEATURES
We have launched new features last night as well as site improvements you asked for in Journals. Let's start from the new features:
1) We have launched Classifieds! This is intended for users to trade pet stuff; post and find pet related jobs; and list or help find a lost pet.
We feel this will be used by many zootooers, but we need your help to keep unwanted "spam" posts of pets for sale from puppy mills. We all know they will try to use it, but that's when our community reacts by flagging inappropriate use of our beloved web-site. Together, we'll make them go away...
2) We launched Zootoo.com Angels. We are now providing shelters with the ability to recognize Pet Professionals by making them Zootoo.com Angels. The thinking behind is to help shelters with a new bargaining tool to get more free services out of pet professionals. If a vet or a groomer wants Zootoo Angels they "better" give free services to their local shelter or their manager won't assign them the new Zootoo Angel badge. Only shelter managers have this right, not users.
a) By now, you know that groups can also be private. We added group discussion notifications. Everytime, there is a new discussion created in your group, group members will be notified. As usual, we took care of privacy. If you don't want to receive those emails from your group anymore, you can opt-out in MyZooToo > Account & Privacy > Notifications All the groups you below are listed and you can select which one you want to stop or continue receive new discussions alerts.
b) Many pet products can be now purchased on Zootoo through Petco.com. When you see a product on Zootoo.com the buy button will bring you to a related Petco page.
Many new and exciting features are upcoming, including video contests starting next week and more than 60,000 pet related books...
Stay tuned and as usual all feedback is welcome...
