Among many notifications mails like Facebook comments and Twitter followers that I got today one was from Slideshare informing of a new follwer. I was about to delete it almost as soon as it opened/loaded but then something caught my eye. Something had changed. Here’s what the email looked like on 10th August when I took this screenshot.
I had written about the use of both terms(follower and contact) in this email and how it isn’t the best thing to be done here. In two days since I wrote that blog post, things have changed and I assume that post of mine might have been one of the reasons behind the change in email template which now looks like this
The usage of term follow/follower/following is consistent now in all the three instances. Also, the profile url is now hidden under ‘here’, unlike being posted in open which is a good thing as it saves space and looks neat.
All in all good change, thumbs up Slideshare !!
Slideshare were you really listening ? 🙂
update: Slideshare acknowledged listening to the post I wrote
