MindMixer Updates Site, Interface To Boost Engagement
Online communities platform MindMixer has redesigned its Web site and user interface with the goal of helping its clients increase user engagement. Available now, the platform's updates include a new user-responsive design. Responsive design optimizes the platform's layout based on screen size.
MindMixer is an online community engagement platform that is used by education, civic, and healthcare organizations. It includes capability to post a challenge to help find solutions, conduct polls and surveys, and view analytics.
The Omaha, NE-based company made the changes after soliciting input from more than 500 users and conducting 400 hours of testing.
"We've built a business on helping leadership turn to their communities for input on shared issues and this time, it was our turn," said Nick Bowden, CEO of MindMixer, in a prepared statement. " … it was time to ask our clients and their end-users what we could be doing better or differently to make sure they're able to use our product to create real, meaningful change in their communities."
Updates made to MindMixer include:
- Responsive Web design, which optimizes layout based on screen size, whether on a smartphone, tablet, desktop or laptop computer;
- User-generated content can now be found in the activity stream on the MindMixer homepage along with other content; and
- Conversation-sharing on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn.
There is no charge to use MindMixer. Users can register using an email address or social media accounts.
