SocialSpark Update

Do you feel that? That is me jumping up and down with excitement (I have put on a few pounds). The dev team has been absolutely rocking it out and we are getting oh so close to inviting people in to play around with SocialSpark. Next week we enter into bug fixing mode, squashing the last known issues and cleaning up some usability concerns that the focus group pointed out.

I am elated. The process had taken longer than any of us had hoped but the resulting product is something I feel great about. and stand behind. The sales team can't wait to get their hands on SocialSpark and start selling, but in the meantime they continue to deliver. In fact, yesterday we set an all time single day sales record! Special thanks to Joe Vaughn for the extra effort. Way to go Joe!

I appreciate all of your patience. I am sure we will find plenty of issues in the private alpha, but I am confident you will love the new system. We have plenty of other things that will be added to SocialSpark in the future, this is going to be an exciting year for IZEA.

So are those of us who did the tool testing for you (even when it slowed our blogs down) still going to be in the alpha testing??

I'm not elated. Nor am I jumping up and down. I am sad. SocialSpark is using Google Page Rank as part of its Blogger rating system. I thought it wasn't. It wouldn't really matter but I have been blogging for PPP/Izea for a few month and have been benched (went form PR4 to PR0). Looks like I'll have to look elsewhere...

SocialSpark will not be using Google Page Rank.
