We have been working on an important update to the Seesmic platform, and are excited to show our new Seesmic UI and get your feedback. It is experimental, still has a few glitches we’re fixing as we hear from our community, which is the whole point of launching it on a separate url: http://new.seesmic.com
The new site has basically the same feature set as the old one right now but is a much better platform to add features to.
-no more huge flash except in the player. We heard you, it was the #1 request of the community. The new Seesmic should be light, fast to load and easy to access.
-white and not black. Colors are always a debate but a majority of members wanted white. White is good for seesmic-ing as it lights your face in the dark
-auto-refreshing timeline, no need to reload anything
-videos now play in the thumbnails themselves so that you can watch them without having to leave the timeline
-user and video search (plus you can bookmark your searches)
-new user profile pages try any seesmic.com/username
-type a friends name as a recipient for a video
-multiple privacy posting options (public, hide from public timeline, private)
-RSS and Atom feeds for public and user timelines, with enclosures
-Cooliris view (top corner button). We’re very excited to announce our partnership with Cooliris (thanks Tiil for the idea). Now you can have the full Seesmic experience in the impressive 3D Piclens interface, and even reply to videos from there. Seesmic videos will also be easy to find from Cooliris for their current users.
There are a few features from the old Seesmic that did not make it yet and we are adding them quickly:
-posting youtube videos
-upload a video
We hope you like the new Seesmic! It is only a beginning, a new platform for many exciting upcoming features. As always, we are very interested in your feedback. Please report bugs about new.seesmic.com to
