Hello and happy Friday!
We have a number of web-related bits to share with you, so without further ado:
1. Official Facebook Page: We started an official Facebook page last summer, and we’re really looking to ramp up this effort for 2009. We’re aware that there are a couple of fan-created facebook pages as well (and we think they’re awesome!), but we’d like to have as many Revs fans on Facebook as fans of our official page as well. Click here to become a fan of our page.
More changes after the jump including info on our streaming media change (i.e. no more realplayer), moving the blog and more…
2. Live flash audio streams: For the 2009 season and beyond we will be switching from RealPlayer to streaming Flash audio for all of our live audio events, including live game broadcasts and Brad Feldman’s In the Net show/podcast. I am sure this will come as good news to many of you!
3. Blog move: We are moving the blog to our own servers and off of the wordpress sever to give us more control on the look (i.e. re-design) and on the backend of things. What does this mean for you? You will need to potentially update your bookmarks and RSS feeds. We currently have two URLs for the blog: http://blog.revolutionsoccer.net which points to the real URL at http://revolutionsoccer.wordpress.com. Just be sure to access the blog at blog.revolutionsoccer.net from now on and you will be all set, as after the switch is made that will be the only URL you can use to access the blog. And as always, the blog will be featured on the revolutionsoccer.net homepage for easy access.
4. Your feedback: We asked you back in September for your feedback on revolutionsoccer.net as a whole. We’ve taken a lot of your suggestions and built them into our plans for the 2009 season and thank you again for your feedback. Now we would like to know what kind of content would you like to see on the website and on the blog? What types of features (articles, audio, video) would you like to see and share with your friends and fellow soccer fans? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
5. February desktop wallpaper: Our February desktop wallpaper featured player will be none other than February birthday boy (well, sort of) Taylor Twellman, and will be available for download starting February 1.
Thanks everyone, and have a good weekend!
