Social Networking 101

How to make the most of your profile and the social network!

Boston Sex Club is a full-featured social network including some features common to both Twitter and Facebook. Just as with Twitter, you can mention anyone's profile in a post by using their @username. Boston Sex Club also offers Facebook style features including Favorites ("Likes"), Friends, and photo albums.

Check out the six screenshots below to get a feeling for the Members Activity Stream, Members Directory, and your own Member Profile.

Figure 1. This is the Member Activity Stream and the buttons and tabs that make it work. This is the "wall" section of the website. You can "favorite" or comment on anything in the activity stream. The Members Activity Stream is the place where all kinds of Member activity is summarized.

Figure 6. When you click on someone's profile, you can view their personal activity, profile summary, photo album, and more. To private message someone, you must first  click "Add Friend" to request friendship. The public message button creates an activity post with the members @username so you can mention them publicly in your post with a direct link to their profile.
