There hasn’t been much news out of MyBlogLog lately but when it rains, it pours. Speaking at SOBcon yesterday Robyn Tippins (MyBlogLog community manager), mentioned some of the changes that are in the pipeline.
- Yahoo! will be rebranding MyBlogLog. YahooBlogLog?
- A complete site redesign is on the way.
- A new “Widget 2.0″ is coming with hover features.
- Yahoo! is working to remove offensive photos to make MyBlogLog more appealing to conservative business blogs.
- A function to turn off your presence for some types of sites is going to be added.
No timeline for any of the changes was announced.
One feature that wasn’t mentioned, and maybe Eric or Robyn could shed some light on this, is the private label communities like the one Techcrunch has. Scott Rafer (MyBlogLog CEO) mentioned them briefly in an interview back in February. To quote Scott in the interview, he said that they wanted to implement private label communites “for everyone as soon as we can”. I really hope this feature hasn’t been put on the backburner.
