We're happy to announce Subscriptions and Subscribers service!
Sometimes you want to add somebody as a friend, but you doubt if you want to show them your friends-only entries.
Now you can read them in your friends feed, not affecting privacy.
Subscriptions are journals who you just want to read. Subscribers are journals who are subscribed to you.( Collapse )
We are happy to announce that all LiveJournal pages work via HTTPS from now.
Use of encryption protects user cookies and transmitted data. LiveJournal got A+ for HTTPS support by the Qualysys test service.
Preparing for moving to a secure protocol took more than six months, we tried to foresee all possible difficulties and make moving process technologically inconspicuous for users. Images stored on third-party hosts that do not support the HTTPS protocol for security purposes are now loading through secure proxy.
We have some good news! You are now able to import your public Facebook entries to LiveJournal automatically. You can make posts on both platforms at once, increasing your posts' reach and allowing users on both platforms to respond. New posts will be archived and be easily accessible by their publication date in your calendar.
You can set up the import of your public Facebook posts to LiveJournal at the 'extensions' tab of your account settings. You will be able to choose import period and whether to import your new public posts automatically. LiveJournal entries cross-posted to Facebook will not be imported back again. You can edit the privacy level of imported entries and add your own tags to the post.
Your subscribers will not receive notifications about old Facebook posts imported to LiveJournal; however, if you choose to import new posts automatically, your LiveJournal subscribers will receive the usual new post notification.
The "from Facebook" tag is added to all the posts imported from Facebook.
We're pleased to tell you that now you can embed entries from LiveJournal to your posts on other sites.( Collapse )
We're excited to announce our new post editor. Some of you might have noticed the link to it at the new post page. It isn't visible to everyone yet, but it soon will be :)
We have changed the whole approach to posts creation. Now, while writing an entry, you immediately see what it will look like after publishing.
Let's take a look!( Collapse )
On April 15, 2017, LiveJournal is turning eighteen. In fact, LJ has two birthdays: March 18, 1999 (when Brad Fitzpatrick published his first post) and April 15, 1999 (when he registered livejournal.com domain).
For an Internet project, 18 years is no joke. Today LiveJournal is among the biggest blogging communities in the world. ( Collapse )
Despite the changes, LiveJournal remains an international blogging platform. Specifically, LiveJournal’s policy on user privacy and data security has undergone no major changes.
Starting from April 4th 2017, non-authorized users will see advertisements on all LiveJournal pages.
The accounts system is simplified. Accounts are now differentiated only by their authorization type:
- Account (authorization via LiveJournal login and password);
- Identity Account (authorization via social networks accounts or OpenID).
LiveJournal users can continue using additional packages of services to expand the potential of their accounts. The “Professional” services package, available in the LiveJournal Shop, is almost identical to the former Paid account package – except that available disk space has been increased to 100 GB. Accounts with the “Permanent” services package (formerly Permanent accounts) now have 1 TB disk space available.
All accounts with additional services packages in effect on April 4th 2017, will be granted extra time for those packages. They will be extended by half of the last paid period.
To comment on an entry, just type your comment in the box provided and press Enter (this doesn't reload the page, so you can just continue reading your feed from your previous position). HTML, images, videos, and mentioning other LJ users by their usernames are allowed in quick comments. You can also edit or delete the quick comment you left directly from the Friends Feed.
This feature is available in the new design and new Feed only.
You can switch to the new design by clicking the link in the upper right page corner, and the Friends Feed is available at http://username.livejournal.com/feed/ (where 'username' is your LiveJournal username). We're looking forward to hearing your feedback!
