Mug Shots and Shout Outs

Posted by: Michelle Lockett on June 5, 2009

Everyone wants their 15 minutes of fame these days. BX can help out a bit.

No, Business Exchange can’t make you an Internet star, but we can bring your words of wisdom to the masses. Our new BX widget on the BusinessWeek homepage features smart, witty and thoughtful reactions from BX users.

How does it work? When adding an article or blog entry, post a reaction to that content at the same time. You can also add a reaction to any article page that is already on the site. And while you’re at it, why not post it to Twitter, too.

We then scour the site for interesting reactions and post them to the BW homepage throughout the day.

The catch (there’s always a catch): We will not feature users who have not uploaded a profile image. Why? It just doesn’t look good in the module. Our goal is to highlight the people of BX, and we can’t do that if you don’t have a picture. Also make sure your profile is public; private users will not be featured.

So, don’t be shy — take a digital shot, upload it to BX and start talking. We know you have something good to say!

(Note: BX profile photos must be .jpg, .gif, .tif or .bmp. image files and cannot exceed 5 MB. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.)
