XL Communities and College Football - Bringing You and Your Fellow Fans Closer Together

posted by julie on 8/26/2008 at 10:44 PM

Just in time for football season, XL Communities launches it's latest version that's the perfect solution for you and your game-watching crew.  If you're just like the rest of us, the minute that 4th quarter counts down to the last second, you're, doing the play by play of the game in your head, anticipating  next week's game, and perhaps wishing that you could share these thoughts with other fans and get feedback.

Enter the World of Blogging.  XL Communities allows you to create your own fan site complete with individual member profiles and yes, now the ability for each member to blog about everything and anything from how they think the team performed, their favorite players, the amazing tailgate party they had…you get the point.  

Don’t have time to write a whole blog post?  Just have one quick comment that you’d like to get out there?  You can also use the message boards within your site to communicate with and get feedback from other members.  Much like a chatroom, message boards can be an outlet for some, or an informative tool for others.  For example, if I am  extremely frustrated with one particular play that happened during the third quarter, I write “I can’t believe John Smith dropped the ball in the 3rd.  What a waste.”  Someone replies, “I know!  My 90yr old Grandma could’ve caught that!”  This could go on and on, potentially involving all members of your fan site.

XL Communities gets to the core of social networking.  We’ve given YOU the power to create your own social networking site.  Whatever your interest may be – be it football or ballet – you can create a networking site for it here, invite others to join, and voila!, you and your friends now have a new home on the Internet.


Just the Beginning

You've probably heard of the old saying "Cobblers children have no shoes."  Well, that has certainly held true for XL Communities.  We spend all of our time working on, you guessed it, your sites, not ours.  When it comes to the totum pole of important tasks, making your experience and that of your members has and always will come first with us.

However, this new blog is the beginnings of making sure we spend some time telling you about what's going on with our company as we continue to make XL Communities better and better.  We want you to know what we're working on, and get your input on what you think are priorities for each quarterly release. 

We'll introduce you to new features with video how-tos, show you how other groups are using the sofware, and give you some insight into who we are from a personal perspective.  That's our goal anyway.  Make sure to let us know how we're doing.
