Major Blog Enhancement

The latest update on the Xeequa communities include an interesting and very important Blog Syndication system. If you are blogging from within any of the Xeequa communities that have a public portal and allow content to go public, you can syndicate those posts with your own blog. The first blog we support is Google's blogger.

Here is how it works:
1) You go to your profile and add your blog to your "Social Networks"
2) You go into any community and create a new post
3) You will see a check box that says "public". check it if you want this blog also appear on your own blog
4) The post will be posted in the community but also on your own blog.
5) Now you will get comments possibly on either blog, inside the community or on your own blog. This is where the real power comes in: The comments will be aggregated no matter where they come from and visible on both blogs. Comments from Xeequa to blogger will be transmitted instantly - comments from Blogger to Xeequa will be retrieved in a 30 minute interval.
6) Posting a post on Blogger however will not go back to any of the communities you are subscribed to. So please post from the community - to feed your blog too.

Give it a try.
