Ability to Favorite/Follow Sellers

Not sure if this has been suggested already?
I thought it would be nice to be able to “Follow” different sellers you support, and then have a page featuring the Newest Posted animals from everyone you’re following. Kind of like a subscriptions feed. From there you could use the existing filter capabilities to sort your own list. Just a thought! Love the overall site functionality-

I really really like this idea.

I was having a think about something along these lines last night.

@john how possible would it be to have a some form of social media live feed on a seller’s page.

Basically scroll down past their animals and there is the sellers latest Instagram/facebook posts, sort of the way the “trending community posts” appears on the marketplace home page.

Paired with the suggestion above of being able to follow certain breeders, this could be used to create a separate live feed of people you are interested in. Showing their animals for sale, instagram and Facebook posts, YouTube videos and community posts all in one place.

I’ll throw a image together as a example…

I hope you don’t mind me using you as a example @stewart_reptiles

You may need to click the image to see the full thing, depending on the device you are using.

While the suggestion is interesting I can see where there would be an issue, people could use their live feed to sell animals on MM and at the same time bypass the ad limit based on membership.

Live feed?

I would think you would just get a notification whenever someone posted a new MM listing.

@stewart_reptiles oh, yeah I totally see what you mean that would be problematic. I don’t think that could be included.

I do remember using some sort of app that allowed me to connect my Instagram but it didn’t show my username or the contents of my posts, just the images themselves. Would something similar to that work better?

I think “following” is a cool idea, and a “feed” based on their postings. This is one set of features.

Pulling in social media-related content to market, and possibly incorporating that into a feed is a related but different set of features. Deb also points out a good concern, although perhaps this would be on premium plans only anyway.
