We're excited to let you all know about our latest improvement. When you visit your profile page now, you'll see the Activity feed has been reworked to help you connect with the people and activity on the site that is most relevant to you.

You can view the activity of all your friends or switch to a view of activity of everyone on the site. Activity is now grouped in ways that make it easier to see and understand what is going on.

For example with the old Activity Feed, if there was an active discussion and 5 people had replied, all five of those replies would have shown up on your Activity Feed as separate entries. Now, you'll see that one entry that let's you know that discussion has been updated. The new replies will be shown right on your activity feed all under the same item. You can "Like" the discussion or reply right from your profile page.

You'll also see that it's easier to add comments to a variety of items (such as friend's photos) right from your profile page.

We've continued to improve Tracked Items as well to make is easier to find out about updates on the items you're most interested in.

Please let us know what you think of the new feature. We hope it will help you create better connections with friends—old and new—as well as give you a better way to see what's happening on the site.

If you have anything to do with the information that is filled out to get the diabetic cookbook (I received an email invitation for it) there are some options that don't work (the program makes you fill it out again) and there are options that don't include very possible ones which means you either lie or give up. Because I couldn't afford the increase in COBRA payments two years ago, I haven't had an HgA1C for close to 3 years.

My glucometer broke over a year ago and I need to replace it to be able to check my levels. I would also appreciate being contacted only by email. I am an agency nurse, work a lot of night shifts so sleep days. I have to have the phone on so the agency can call at 5 to tell me where I am working but everyone else knows not to call between 9 & 5. I'm on VOIP so almost no extraneous calls except when my # is sold.

It was a pleasant surprise to see the new tracking items today. Very cool indeed. I have been having fun with a lot of the new features like the gifts and things...what a great way to just encourage someone with a hug or something. You guys are great! Thank you so much for all the improvements. Love it!
