Site Update! Goodbye Inbox and Friend Feature

BlogHer Original Post

Over the next several weeks (and months!), you're going to see a lot of changes at -- and while I'd love to let you in on all sorts of secrets right now, the team would kill me. What I can tell you is that two outdated and unsupported features left over from a very old site design are going away to make room for new, better, and smarter features and design.

On Monday night, we will be removing the Inbox feature and the ability to send messages to your BlogHer Friends via messaging. You'll also lose the ability to access any existing messages -- so if you have anything in your inbox that you want to save, grab it now!

At the same time, we'll be removing the Friend functionality and any Friends you have attached to your account. The Follow feature will not be removed, so you might consider reviewing your Friends list and changing your relationships with your Friends to Following instead. To do this, make sure you are logged in and visit the profile of the person you want to follow. In the right corner, underneath Information, you'll see the Follow link. Click it and you're all set!

If you have any questions about these changes, please don't hesitate to leave a comment below or contact me directly: We'll keep you updated on future changes and look forward to hearing your feedback.
