More tricks for speed

Hello empowr citizens!

Recently we discussed that if you downloaded the very latest versions of Microsoft's Internet Explorer or Google Chrome, you would experience much faster speed in moving from one profile to the next in your Circle of Trust. 

Many of you have already reported downloading the latest version of one of those browsers, and have been pleasantly surprised (one person said "shocked") by the difference in speed.

So if you haven't downloaded the very latest version of Internet Explorer or Chrome, do yourself a favor and try it!
 

A few more things about speed:

1.  You can use your keyboard's right arrow, to go to the next page. You don't need to go to the top of the page then click the right arrow.

(And on mobile, you'll just swipe left for the next profile - more on that in a moment).

 

2.  For those using the latest version of Chrome:  There appears to be a bug in Chrome. We have noticed that if you have too many tabs or windows open in your browser, your experience will be much slower.

When you notice that you're waiting for the feed stories to load too often, that might mean that you have too many browser tabs or windows open (and the Chrome bug is slowing you down). Try closing the other browser windows or tabs, and see if your experience becomes much faster.

Please share what you do to get a faster (or slower) experience so we can all learn from each other.

 

3. The mobile apps (updated with the new Circle of Trust) have been completed by the engineers and will be available in the coming days: Android by around Wednesday, iPhone next week (because Apple takes over a week to approve changes).

The apps have also been built for speed, although the iPhone app will be much faster than the Android app, apparently. The engineers will be spending a lot of time in the coming weeks attempting to speed up Android.

 

And finally, please remember that your Circle of Trust experience will be getting much better in the coming days and couple of weeks, as you work through the less active empowr citizens.

As you close the loop with people, if they are inactive or do not close the loop back for you, they won't be shown to you again.

That means that, over a short period of time, you will start seeing mostly very active people...

... people that you'll grow to trust, more and more, that they will also show up daily to help you earn. 

So just continue to be patient please, and keep working through your Circle of Trust, and everything will start making a lot more sense before you know it.

Many thanks for your patience while everything comes together.

Any questions?

I just closed down a lot of my other open tabs and windows (in Chrome) and WOW! You can REALLY feel the difference most of the time.

In case you're interested in how the magical turbo-speed happens -- I'll explain how the new empowr Circle of Trust technology works (with only the latest versions of Chrome and Internet Explorer):

As you work through a profile to find things to share and/or bid, empowr is already working behind the scene, communicating quietly with your browser to bring down everything on the next profile.
So when you're finally ready to move to the next profile, hopefully most or all of the next profile and stories are already downloaded to your machine, assembled, and ready to show you -- creating the impression that you have a supersonic internet connection coupled with an incredibly fast super-computer.

I love when technology does what its supposed to: Work intelligently behind the scenes to make your life easier.

On my news feed I see post from like 40-50 days ago are we still only earning from postsblogs etc for 24 hrs? Or has that changed? Also when I go to someone's page to try and close the loop I sometimes can only find their listing no posts, no blogs it makes it difficult, yea I can bid but that won't motivate them to help me by sharing my posts all the time.

Awesome to know there are more efforts in coming to improve the new site interface, but actually I ask for a favor if that could be possible, showing the items for sales among the other`s posts (photos, blogs and videos) cause more crowding, we lose most of our BFos posts in this crowded page. I wish that could be possible to divide them... Thank you JC, Best regards.

Hello JC, does it necessary that we go through the Circle of Trust so that to filter out the non active members?
I ask because I just use – notification page and the – People I trust page to view, like and share other users posting.

I use Mac OS and it seems circle of trust, people I trust page works fine and fast.
The only thing that I miss is when I search for a hashtag word, it will lead me to – a new user profile of circle of trust.

Tricks for speed in Chrome:
Chrome uses a lot of memory it's a known fact. To speed up Chrome go to the top right corner of the browser the 3 horizontal bars, click and select "More Tools" then select "Task Manager" , one this screen select and "End Process" on services you don't feel you need for this site. Example I ended a process for my online banking. as well as Avast antivirus for example that you are comfortable you will not need here.

Note: If you open another tab, those services may start up again and slow you down, you may check your task manager again and stop services.

I arrived at a user whose account was wiped out, and appear

You are attempting to access a profile that does not exist.


If it existed previously, it May have been deleted by the user, blocked or otherwise removed from the system.


Go Back

I no longer have access to any circle of trust, nor the arrow to the right

Me too. If you arrive at a blocked account, you can't go further anymore in the Circle of Trust.
