Just to let you know that individual contact details for events now stop displaying 30 days after an event has happened.

The federal party has some campaign days coming up.
If you want to see which events have been added to Flock Together on the first campaign day on February 9th, you can find the details at http://www.flocktogether.org.uk/campaignday/2013/02/09/
A bit thank you to Lib Dem Voice for showing the latest Flock Together events on their blog.
And a big thank you to Ryan Cullen for making it possible.
It’s the first use of the new JSON feed I referred to in the last blog post.
Click on the ‘Feedback’ tab to the left, or go directly to the Uservoice site to have your say about how Flock Together can improve and I’ll do my best (in my free time) to implement the suggested changes.
Just hit one of these radio buttons:
Flock Together now also pulls any by-elections that it doesn’t already have semi-automatically off the ALDC website.
It doesn’t show them all – just the ones with contact details – but it should help keep Flock Together more easily up to date.
Just for your info/entertainment, by-election pages now show ward/constituency boundaries.
They also now show up if you share a page on Facebook (also from St Paul’s).
I’ve been playing with the Facebook Social Plugins to see if they can add any useful functionality to Flock Together.
So far, it’s intriguing. It’ll be interesting to see what sort of impact it has in terms of usage and interaction with the Flock Together site and attendance at Flock Together events…
A quick piece of new functionality in the way Flock Together uses Twitter:
If you look at this tweet and click on the word ‘here’, it will show a map with the location of the Flock Together event referred to in the text.
In essence, the tweet now has a location associated with it. This means it will appear in searches for tweets near to a particular location.
The interesting question now is where we go from here. The next priority for FlockTogether is a dramatically improved interface. But I think there are plenty of opportunities for further integration of FlockTogether and Twitter. Ideas include:
- Reminder tweets of upcoming events
- Allowing people to use Twitter to log in to Flock Together
- Allowing people to follow @flocktogether without leaving the site
Any other ideas? Please let me know.
