Finally, after a long wait, the communities arrived at STEEM, and I must say that they represent a very favorable change for the platform, adding some functionalities that did not exist and improving the existing ones in terms of ease of use.
Initially for some it can be somewhat confusing, however, once you get familiar and explore all the functions, you realize the significant advantages that come with this "new version" of STEEMIT.
I offer a quick and practical introduction to the new STEEM BLOCKCHAIN communities, I invite you to join me on this tour.
In the work I show you, I focus mostly on the communities and their new functionalities.
When we enter the main part of the front end of the steemit platform, we find the different functions offered by the platform, first we enter the BLOG part, in it you find all the publications that you have forwarded, then you find the answers to your comments, the communities and the notifications, being these last two functions on which I want to focus my explanation.
The notifications are some of the innovations that the platform brings, representing one of the very useful elements that arrived with the communities, making navigation and interaction with other users easier, for me a very successful inclusion.
When entering the section of communities, we will find in the upper left part of the interface, all the communities to which you have subscribed, by clicking on any of these names you have access to any community, either to read the publications, comment, vote, even to post from one of them.
I generally publish in the Project Hope community and I will access it to continue showing you some functions.
Once you are in the community you chose, you will find the following in a very organized and pleasant way:
On the left side of your monitor the number of communities to which you are subscribed and at the bottom of it a text that says EXPLORE COMMUNITIES, which we will access after this, in the center part the publications that are in trend of this community or those that are anchored at the beginning, on the right side of your monitor all the information regarding the community.
Once you enter to explore communities you are in the central part all the communities located by ranking, if you scroll down you can find the community of your choice and the position in which it is according to the ranking of communities.
At the time of this publication, our Project Hope community is ranked number 11 of the constituted communities, for me a very good position.
Then there is the position of the communities by number of subscribers, and by the time of this publication our community occupied the position number 17, with 338 subscribers, it would surely increase rapidly.
In my opinion, the grouping into communities facilitates navigation through the platform, very missing elements were added in the ecosystem, notifications, creation and publication in different communities was like condensing in a small space all we need to publish and interact with the other members of the communities.
Let me know your opinion!
PROJECT #HOPE An Initiative to give hope!
