Readership, Member Services & Social Media
Journalmaker‚Ą† has a comprehensive reader-member management and social networking module. You control who may join and how they are added. Each member has a personal profile and may have a personal journal, post brief personal news items, comment in forums and many other content sections, all subject to permission settings you establish.


Member/Reader Services

Each reader/member has a personal profile that enables the member to add links to other networks, brief updates and personal information as allowed by the site administrator. Member profile content may optionally be shared elsewhere on the site. This effectively turns the site into a social media network.

Member features include

  • posting brief personal announcements, comments, updates in their profiles
  • include images and links to additional information in updates
  • publish a personal journal with longer articles and HTML/CSS formatting
  • send member-to-member messages ("internal email")
  • create a biography and/or resume with downloadable PDF support
  • comment on other members' articles
  • join member-created groups as allowed by the administrator
  • (future optional extra features)
    • image gallery
    • business/sponsor directory listings

These features may be used both for personal contact and as an issues-tracking system if linked via an API to a companion application such as a personnel or work-flow management system. Member identities can be linked through our API to enable common login if desired.

Membership can be open or by invitation only, as defined by each member community's administrator.
All members have certain standard benefits, and custom benefits like direct access to features of a companion application through our API can be programmed by the Journalmaker team.
