You haven’t heard from us in awhile. Why, you may ask? Because we have been restructuring our teams and dedicating all our resources towards some very BIG and exciting new developments.
During the next 5 months, we will be unveiling some amazing updates to Call Dibs, all leading up to our biggest release yet in June. So keep in touch, follow Call Dibs on Facebook and Call Dibs on Twitter and let us know what you think.
Here at Call Dibs, we have the unique opportunity to be an active part of the military community, but are also immersed in the newest and best developments in technology and social networks. After many months of receiving user feedback and studying the role of comments in digital communities, our tech team got to work, and this weekend, we will be releasing an update that will provide the Call Dibs community the ability to comment on listings.
The private message option to communicate securely with a seller will still be available as well. Comments will allow more communication and relationship building between users within their respective military communities. But don’t worry, we’ve also built in the ability for a seller to “delete” a comment if they find it undesirable on their listing.
Call Dibs is not just a place to sell and buy items – it is a community.
People can definitely meet in communities or social networks. But community is where they develop these relationships. Community can form anywhere, even on a social network site. It is a natural tendency for human to congregate around similar interest and goals. There are many interesting dynamics between communities and social network…both of them have very [real] roles in the human society; that is why they are the most stable social structure in human history. -Michael Wu, Ph.D. (Community Vs. Social Network).
As we continue to develop the platform to allow for more connectivity and relationship building, we foresee it becoming a vital tool for military members and their families to communicate and assist each other, during times of transition and the general hustle and bustle of daily military life.
