We hope your summer was the best! Our certainly was the best, we did a great job. And we have some good news!
Ban 'Em All!
One of the most common requests to support was about avoiding ban in other journals. If you ban somebody they still could reply to your comments in other journals and communities. Very unpleasant experience. We fixed that.
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.
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 )
