Hello and thank you for this amazing site. I really like it!!
I have a couple of suggestions for you to consider ...
hoping, wishing, dreaming for a cure....
SHOW WHERE PEOPLE LIVE - this would be great to know. This is done on an excellent Australian site www.realitycheck.org.au When you join, you are given the option as to whether you show your location or not, and it just adds something to the networking experience.
HAVE A TOUR AVAILABLE - I have found juvenation a bit tricky to find my way around, and find all of the features. Could you include a tour of the site to show off the features?
I love the idea of showing people's location on a map, maybe because I am very much a "visual" person. My knowledge of U.S. geography is not very good, and I recently went to Google maps to help me determine where some of the states are located. I'm sure a lot of the American members don't know much about Canadian geography either!
A tour would indeed be helpful. Back when I first joined, I did find the site a little confusing. Now, after a few months, I basically go on auto-pilot! LOL
What about adding some type of IM service to Juvenation? Maybe it would be good to do a survey to make sure people would use first though. Just an idea.

Good idea. I brought the idea of IM or "live chat" up in a post today to content crew. I had been thinking it would be fun, especially for the younger members, to hold a series of scheduled live chats with a celebrity diabetic, like Mary Tyler Moore or Elliott Yamin. They could ask the celebrity questions about their coping and managing their diabetes. For the older folks (like me) we could do the same thing except with professional endocrinologists, nutritionists and other specialists. You would have to have some "live chat" mechanism on the site to do this. I believe it's very similar to IM.
Hey, come on, is there really a candy bar worth dying for?
Act always as if the future of the Universe depended on what you did,while laughing at yourself for thinking that whatever you do makes any difference.
