You may have noticed something different about MakeUseOf.
After sticking with our former website design for just over two years, we’ve decided to roll out a new theme that’s hopefully more helpful and easier to navigate. We’ve also incorporated a couple of new features that’s accessible on both the desktop and mobile version.
Here’s what’s new.
Create your own MakeUseOf account by clicking on our new menu button and registering through social media authorization or your email address. With an account, it’ll be easier than ever to receive alerts whenever new articles are published, comment on our articles, keep track of your commenting history, as well as any submitted questions on Answers.
The process is really simple, especially if you sign up using social media.
At MakeUseOf, it’s not uncommon to find useful articles that you might want to read again in the future. Now, with our bookmarks/favorite feature, you may store as many articles as you like in your account. Just click on the bookmark button located at the top of any article to save the post to your personal collection.
You may do the same for interesting questions on Answers.
In order to alert you of new, highly relevant articles, we’ve introduced notifications that will indicate if new articles have been published in the categories you care about. Say you want to be informed whenever we publish new articles about Windows, just subscribe to the category in your Settings panel (click the menu, then the cog or your profile image), and you’ll see a bubble indicating new articles to be read.
Now go ahead and subscribe to as many categories as you like, and stay in the loop.
Our new print stylesheet makes it really simple to print our articles as PDF documents while retaining visible links. Only the main article will be printed and it won’t include our sidebar, saving precious ink. Give it a try!
Last but certainly not least, submitting a question to Answers is as easy as pie with a MakeUseOf account. Just head over to Answers, click on ‘Ask your question’, fill in the form and hit Submit. Then keep track of every question you’ve ever asked in your account dashboard.
What do you think of the improvements?
As a MakeUseOf reader, your feedback is highly appreciated. Please share your feedback, recommendations, or criticisms in the comments. You will have to register for an account first, but I assure you it’s worth it.
