Exciting new features are coming to Mbono with the launch of Mbono Pro on September 15, 2010. These make it easier to rapidly build your Twitter following, one soul-aligned friend at a time and also to manage accounts with more than 5,000 followers. The following video shows many of these features and some enhancements to Mbono Plus.
New Features on Mbono Pro:
- Quotes Management with Multiple Lists - As well as being able to see all your quotes and export them for use in external systems such as SocialOomph, should you so wish, Mbono's Quote Management system splits quotes into "Giving" and "Requesting" and allows the user to assign a quote to any one of 4 lists. These may be used in any way you choose, with current requesting quotes being on List 1.
To facilitate Whispering Energy Members in supporting one another in sending out each other's quotes, Lists 3 and 4 are used in a special way: place a few items you would like others to send out on List 3. Place any quotes you are sending out for others on List 4. You will see a special tab which shows you what it on List 3 for OTHER people and can simply click on the Copy icon and then Save to add this quote to your own List 4!
This facility is available to Mbono Plus and Mbono Pro users. Mbono Pro users have more advanced capabilities to manage lists.
Specifying Start and End Dates for Quotes (Pro only) - Mbono Pro users can optionally specify a start and/or an end date for each requesting quote.
ng Followers Through Lists (Pro only) - the Mbono Plus "Followers" tab has an additional item for Pro users which helps you decide which other people on lists following you you would also like to follow - if it's a good list then they are likely to have common interests to you. Displayed in much the same way as other information on Mbono, it automatically filters out people you are already following, people you have marked not to follow and also people who do not follow others back!
- low On Demand (Pro only) - to maximize the amount of time that you allow people to follow you back, Mbono Pro looks each time you decide to follow someone to see if you are getting close to Twitter's maximum. If so it looks to see who you have been following longest who has not yet followed back and will unfollow them to allow space for your new friend. It will always allow people at least 24 hours to follow you back. The only time Pro users will now need to use the "Unfollow" section in Mbono is if you want to mark some people as VIPs who should never be unfollowed, or if you'd like to unfollow people in order to follow more outside of Mbono.
- Faster Performance in the Plus Section (Pro only) - Pro users will find the Plus section many times faster in operation. Mbono Pro goes out on your behalf and gets updates information for you in the background so you no longer have to wait! This also allows Mbono Pro to support users with tens of thousands of followers.
Mbono Plus users will only be able to use the Plus section if they have less than 5,000 friends or followers on Twitter, and will be limited to one screen of suggestions of people to follow per day.
- Higher Frequency for Sending Quotes (Pro only) - Mbono Plus users will be limited to sending one quote at most every two hours. Mbono Pro users will be able to send more often, as frequently as once every fifteen minutes as long as you have provided enough unique quotes to avoid repetition.
Mbono Pro is exclusively available at $49/month to members of the Whispering Energy Collaborative who are either using Whispering Energy's Loving Care Specialist Services (it will be bundled in the new monthly pricing or can be paid separately) or other members of Whispering Energy can subscribe at www.mbono.net/subscription. Those upgrading from Mbono Plus will receive a pro-rated refund of any remaining days on your old subscription.
Anyone who would like to use Mbono Plus or Pro who is not yet a member of the Whispering Energy Collaboration (where support and instruction in using Mbono and other tools for building your heart-centered network is provided) can simply sign up at www.whisperingenergy.com - basic membership is only $24/month and membership of the Social Media University is an incredible bargain at $67/month.
Looking forward to seeing you on Mbono!
