BX One Year Later

Posted by: Michelle Lockett on September 17, 2009

Last week – September 8th to be exact – marked one year from the initial launch of Business Exchange. So we thought it appropriate to take a step back and acknowledge some milestones we hit along the way.

First, we’ve recruited a stellar group of active users. Regular contributors include Business Insider’s Henry Blodget, Business Opportunities Weblog Network’s Dane Carslon, Small Biz Trends’ Anita Campbell, Leavey School of Business’ Terri Griffith and Entrepreneur Paul Briggs, among many others.

Our users have suggested upwards of 1600 business topics that help you organize thousands of the best business blog and news items from across the Web. These topics run the gamut – from stalwarts Social Networking and U.S. Economy to newer topics on Health Insurance Reform and MBA Admissions.

Last, but definitely not least, we’ve launched some great new product features:

  • Dynamic Home Page: Our home page now shows you a view of the public activity of everyone on the site in near real time, along with another view of the activity of just those in your network.
  • Simultaneous Posting: You can cross-post your reactions on BX and to Twitter at the same time.
  • Stay Tuned: Coming soon is something we are internally calling “Company BX.”

Whew, it’s been a busy year. And we’re not stopping either — we are already working on our next act. We’ll keep you posted!

Don’t forget to send us feedback with any questions, comments or suggestions you may have.
