My Web 2.0 Update

We wanted to give you a quick update on what we’ve been up to with My Web. Not everything around here happens with thunderous fanfare, though we have been known to jump up and down when the occasion calls. :-)

So, here’s a bunch of stuff we’ve been working on, with the help of our beta testers:

Easier access to your saved searches from the My Web 2.0 homepage
The revised homepage now provides immediate access to your 3 most recently saved pages. Search ‘memory’ is one of the most useful things about any bookmarking system (social or not) and the old homepage provided only a single link to “My Pages.” We’ve also beefed up the help on that page to make it easier for users to learn how to use the product.

Tag Search
You can now MyWeb message boards. You can read more about it on the My Web blog.

My Web to go, for all you bloggers out there
We created a badge to insert your most recently saved pages on your blogs, and you asked for a button. Now you have that, too.

Bulk editing
You can edit 20 saved pages at a time ‘ great for changing the tags on imported bookmarks.

Performance improvements
In addition, we’ve been working hard to make My Web faster and lay the foundation for future functionality. It took us a little longer than we expected over the weekend, but the good news is that all went well and we’re in good shape for what comes next.

Finally, if you hadn’t heard, Delicious has joined our family. Expect some great things as we continue to improve both services.

Please stay tuned if what you are looking for isn’t here yet. Or, tell us what you’d like to see to make My Web 2.0 easier, faster, or more suited to your daily use. Drop a comment below or head over to the My Web forum.

Thanks for using our product!
