SparkPeople Articles Get a Facelift!


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, April 10, 2012



Good morning, SparkPeople!

Today you may have noticed that SparkPeople's articles (here is one example) got a facelift this morning! Today we improved the look and function of our article pages.

Some of the things you may notice are:

- Larger, bolder images at the top
- An easy-to-find "share" bar on the left. This allows you to easily "Like," tweet, email, print and even save an article to your SparkFavorites.
- Ability to read full-length comments from other members as well as add your own (right at the bottom)
- Relevant content and links listed at the end of the story

Don't worry, you'll still find your "Get My SparkPoints" button right at tne end of every article. You can earn 3 Points per article that you read!

We hope you like the new and improved design of our article pages. We have more fun changes in the works coming soon, too! Please let us know if you are having any issues with the new article layout or functionality. Thanks!

    Can the iphone app have some of the social aspects of SP added to it? It would be nice to be able to update me status and comment on people's pages from the app.

    The articles I read had the related content and author's information after the article. I liked it that way. Sometimes I miss the related content and now I will not miss if I read the whole article.
