New updated OTN forums

Hi All,

Today, OTN is in new look.OTN has recently been updated .You will see really good User interface.Its based on JIVE 7 .
Few of recent changes here –

Updated Profiles

Profile pages have a new look and purpose. You can now add more photos, highlight featured content, and list your own skills and expertise for others to endorse. When viewing other people’s profiles, you can see their recent activity, their top (public) Places, and you can endorse them for skills.

Impact Metrics

More powerful than a “read receipt,” Impact Metrics give you personal analytics on content you’ve created. Beyond view counts, you can now see the impact of your content, reach of the message, sentiment and response. Depending on your community settings, you can see viewers by department plus view which users specifically have read or referred others to your content. Impact Metrics are available for documents, discussions, and blog posts. Content created after your upgrade will show metrics immediately, while content created before the upgrade will show metrics only after your network data has been completely migrated.
