We are proud to announce the general release of EasySocial 1.1. Much thought has been put in for this release that we are very confident that your customers would love these updates. I am also very proud of the entire team behind the company as we have achieved one of our greatest milestone ever in such a short period of time. None of us has ever produced such great results in such a short period of time.
This release focuses on building an exciting and thriving social network. We have placed lots of emphasis on how your users would benefit from registering on the site and how to increase the conversion rate for your social network.
Here are some of the many features that are new in EasySocial 1.1:
#Hashtags and @names
Beautifully crafted and close to perfection, we are really proud of what we have invented. The hash tags and @names feature in EasySocial allows users on your site to quickly be able to mention someone's name and probably tag them using hash tags.
Custom Stream Filters
Social networks are often cluttered by tons of activity stream updates and this will eventually just be noise in any site. Your users would never appreciate this as there is no way for them to only view updates that they want to see. With the addition of custom stream filters, your users would be able to customize the output of the stream based on specific hash tags defined.
Rich Media Sharing
Rich media sharing is inevitable to enhance the stream. With the latest release of EasySocial, we have added tons of rich media support. These are some of the main rich media providers that is supported:
- Flickr gallery
- and a whole lot of them.
More Applications & Modules
With the release of EasySocial 1.1, we have also introduced several applications, plugins and modules that can be used in conjunction with your existing Joomla site. These are the new additions for EasySocial

Tons of Exciting Enhancements
There are just too many enhancements to list them all here but all in all, we have refined lots of existing features and functionality based on the feedback on the initial release EasySocial. We have improvised the behavior of the story form in the stream and mainly focused on the usability aspect.
