October 11, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Colorado Springs, Colorado — Oct. 11, 2007 — TagSum, the Internet’s latest social utility, today released new video sharing functionality and redesigned its site to simplify navigation for users. TagSum also launched a Photo sharing section that aggregates visual information so users can better understand what’s going on around them.

“TagSum is a technology company with a highly iterative development process and we’re constantly improving how the site works,” said Mike Christensen, founder and CEO, Simplified Web Systems. “Our goal with the latest changes is to help users navigate the site more easily and share information more efficiently.”

Several weeks prior to launching the new functionality, TagSum created a group on the site called ‘TagSum Sneak Preview’ and released screenshots to foster discussion among users about the improvements. Various user suggestions were incorporated into the final products, including adding more messaging notifications, and allowing users to submit other media types such as photos and videos.

Photo and Video Sections Connect Users to Media and to Each Other

TagSum has thousands of users in different regions, companies and schools. Users on TagSum can quickly search Tags that connect them with people who are interested in similar subjects, with similar views.

A Photo or Video page shows popular media that is submitted by users. Each page contains basic metrics about the element, such as number of votes and comments. Both Videos and Photos can be viewed right on the page making for a rich user experience.

New Site Design

TagSum simplified navigation on the site to give users easier access to core functions and applications. Profile, Friends, Comments and Inbox – pages core to the user experience on TagSum – have been moved to a more prominent place at the top of the Control Panel. TagSum message indicators were added to the top section of the pages to alert users to new private messages, comments, and friend requests.
