Hands up those of you who have Facebook accounts. Great! I could bet over 70% of you are waving your hands. So are we. And so would most of our friends. And friends of our friends… The undeniable feature of Facebook is that magically people not only use it, but also consider it the most important online communication channel. Weather you like it or not, Facebook is changing the way we connect and interact with each other and share things online.

Today at Wikidot.com we are introducing a totally new feature: integration with Facebook Connect. From now on you can

  • connect accounts at your two favorite web services,
  • use your Facebook account to log into Wikidot,
  • use a Facebook account to create a Wikidot account.

As you may have already read in one of our recent blog posts over the last few months we've been fighting the increased SEO-related spam activity on Wikidot. Though at first glance this war seemed like tilting at windmills, we've designed spam-prevention mechanisms that are surprisingly efficient, especially when dealing with automatically created sites. Even if spammers are able to create such sites, we delete them. We hope that spammers eventually will get bored of this uphill struggle.

Automated content creation tools and spam is a huge problem for us. As previously explained, low-quality content may harm the project because it appears to be less worthful and reliable for users, advertisers, investors etc. Who'd want to have its project hosted and managed by a service used vastly by spammers?

September, end of summer, getting back to work. A pessimist would claim it is one of the worst moments of the year. An optimist on the other hand would point out that the refreshing holiday season gave them tons of new ideas, and the energy to get back to old projects and to start new ones. We are definitely optimists and we wish all of you such an approach!

Nevertheless, for most of us (professionals, researchers, lecturers, students, hobbyists) the productivity season starts. And we believe Wikidot can boost your success.

Summer holiday is over and it is definitely time to get back to real work. Actually, Wikidot.com never closes for any holiday season, but due to human nature and labour code some of us need to take time off once in a while, which leaves the rest of the team with twice as much work as they usually have. And less time for innovation.

But even despite that we have recently implemented a new, long-awaited feature which some of you have already spotted. Page drafts.
