Changes in the IBOsocial Page of IBO Toolbox V3:
The roll-out at IBO Toolbox of the new IBOsocial pages on 3/24/2016 has brought many changes. Some of them are easy to see and some will have deeper results. How we use these changes will be up to us. IBO Toolbox provides the tools. We need to know how they work to get the most out of them. To get a good Idea of the changes here are a couple of examples.

This will give you a look back at previous versions of a given page.
Here is my IBOsocial page for 3/7/2016.
Here is an interesting look back to my first days at IBO Toolbox. 8/26/2012.
What Has Changed:
The overall structure of IBO Toolbox V3 retains the format introduced in IBO Toolbox V2 with a narrow mast to the left and the wider presentation area to the right. The IBO Member information has been expanded becoming Performance/Stats which now includes the number of your Associates. Your most recent Press Releases and Videos are now listed on the mast making it much easier to visit your most recent posts.
Your other IBO Platforms are now displayed at the bottom of the mast below the area for your Member Advertising. The sharing tools have been moved from the mast to the page header where you can now see the Member's Join Link and a link to the IBO Hub. The IBO Hub is worth a look for its own changes.
As of 3/27/2016, the Facebook Fan Page link is no longer displayed. I hope they will bring that one back. (Perhaps if enough people mention it to the help desk?) At this time, the IBO Extra ad display, the RSS Feeds, and the visual display of your IBO Associates are also gone from the Mast.
The presentation area to the right has been expanded from approximately 510 Pixels to about 670 Pixels. The simple menu at the top of the IBO Social page has been clarified and now includes a link to your Social Wall where you can now see your IBO Wall posts that were formerly displayed in a brief format on your main IBOsocial page.
As we turn to the Press Release page, we may notice a few other changes. At this time, the IBO Authentic Badge no longer displays although you can still identify the IBO Authentic Press Releases by the Wall Post. Also gone is the time of your IBO Press Release posting. And, the keyword section has been moved to the bottom of your Press Release.
In a change of interest only to those interested in looking at the source code for our pages, where the Press Release was located below class=”rstclass” it is now located below a div id=“CPHmain_panel_prsingle”. Right-click the Press Release page and select view page source or the equivalent for your browser and search for “CPHmain_panel_prsingle” to see the actual code for the Press Release.
As mentioned above, the presentation area for our Press Releases is much wider. This will make it much easier to share larger images and videos. Perhaps the biggest change is the way that the “IBO Member Comments” are now the same on our Press Release and on the IBO Wall. This should lead to more interaction and participation. I sort of wish there was an indication of whether the Reply was made from the IBO Wall or from the IBOsocial Press Release Page. Of course, you still only earn credits for your “IBO Member Comment” when it is made on the Press Release Page.
How will these changes in the IBOsocial Page of IBO V3 affect the way that you use IBO Toolbox? For myself, it makes more sense to thank each commenter in a Reply to their IBO Member Comment. I can use that as a guide to make sure that I return the favor of their comment on my post. With our IBO Member Comments now visible on the IBO Wall, in the IBO Hub, and on the Member Invitation pages, we will need to take more care to Read every Press Release that we Reply to and make our comments as relevant as possible. Our Replies are no longer simple comments on Press Release but statements that can be seen by the entire world.
