My goodness, this is shaping up to be quite a week for fantastic site improvements. This week the XDA team has been focusing on ways in which we can make XDA not only easier to use, without you having to use an excessive amount of third-party applications to share and download content, but also preventing it from taking too much time out of your precious day.
What changes have we made this time? We’ve added a Facebook like button to all threads posted. It’s a simple development, but as the saying goes, “an effective one”.
What does this button do and what will it mean to you? This will allow you to share your favourite threads on XDA Developers with your friends and family on Facebook without having to copy and paste a link. We all know how much time it takes to do that, don’t we? So, we put a stop to it.
So again, don’t say that we don’t spoil you. This week has been a good and productive one, and we hope to make each week just as fantastic with different changes and developments to make sure that your XDA Developers experience is great and without any issues!
