As regular followers will know, CFR has had to move away from Facebook as our primary promotion and engagement tool due to the inherent instablities and Facebook closure of certain cross-promotional features. We set up our Forum, which has far better features than FB for our shows and helps us with our Google ranking, but despite that many listeners, used to the way FB works, have found it hard to get to grips with it.
Let it not be said that we here at CFR don't listen to our listeners, so we developed CrossChat, a platform that behaves like Facebook features wise, but without the constant issues, and with the cross-promotional aspects we at CFR need to grow the station.
Now we're taking that one step further and will soon be unveiling CrossChat 3.0 which will have the following:
Unlimited Comments and replies to comments
Top Down format (i.e. the latest post first just like Facebook)
Comments and Replies with images
Like, Love, Laugh, and other emojis
Full integration into next year's CFR StoreFront
Dynamic Avatar selection- change your post avatar on the fly to suit your mood
Notifications of replies to your comments and so on
Open but moderated membership, with sign up from your existing CFR, Facebook or Twitter profiles.
Keep watching out for details of when and how XC3 will launch.
