(yeah, I know…that title was a bit of a reach):
Two more Ello-related points of interest.
1) You can use animated GIFs for your banner. I haven’t tested the profile pics, but so far, it seems to be a pretty friendly site for that sort of thing. Check out Skitoman’s banner.
2) There’s still a lot of missing functionality. One of the big ones is that you can’t link to a specific post. That makes sharing interesting content kind of tricky. I’ve always felt that was on of the more useful features in SM.
Is it just me, or have we learned how to adapt to new social media really, really quickly over the last fifteen years or so? There’s probably a paper in that somewhere.
