We would like to inform you that, as part of a database cleanup effort, we are in the process of removing some experimental modules off of the platform. These modules would be;
  1. Auction
  2. Videochat
  3. Games
  4. Ask
  5. Music
  6. Funds
Instead of these unstable modules, you may use 3rd party widgets or similar modules (for example, Forum instead of Ask)

By focusing on our code modules, we would be able to better serve your needs.
Effective September 1, 2016, we are introducing a new set of long-term price tiers:

Let's start with the good news. The trials are now 14 days -- 2 weeks. This will give new users ample to experiment with the platform and make their decision.

As for the new price tiers:

Silver will be replaced with the new Basic Plan:
$29.99/month or $199.99/year 

Platinum will be replaced replaced with the new Pro Plan:
$89.99/month or $699.99/year (annual will be grandfathered and the price will increase gradually)

VIP is being replaced with Enterprise
starts at $2400/year (older accounts will be grandfathered and the price will increase gradually)

One problem we hear pretty often from our customers, is that, no matter how many members they invite to their social network, the retention levels are never as high as they would like it to be and this is a common problem that many online communities face across all platforms.

Having hosted well over 300,000 social networks on our platform, experienced three of them reach and exceed 1 million members, we’ve had the exclusive privilege to see what best practices make a social network foster and build an engaged audience.  Here we want to share those useful tips with our customers. 

Basically, we’ve observed that it all comes down to the fact that there are 2 ways to create stickiness within your network:

1. Real-Life Authority
2. Content

So let me elaborate more:

Real Life Authority applies particularly well to professional and educational networks. In professional networks, where the purpose of the social network is collaboration, the founder of group, whic

  1. Don't email your target list of members right after creating your group. Prepare first by creating the seed content. You should only invite a few close friends who'll help you with initial preparations and/or give feedback. Make sure your and your friends' profiles are complete and you have profile questions set.
  2. When you feel ready to go, use mailchimp for your first invitation emails. Because obviously their email delivery rates are way better than us.
  3. The page that your invitees see first is very important. GROU.PS login pages are already optimized for maximum impact to your prospective members; however, it may be in your benefit to fake the number of members you claim to have in your network. Prospective members may be deterred from joining your network if it says you only have 2 members. To replace the member count number please visit your admin panel, then go to Look&Feel > Views > Auth and replace "{$groupMembersCountText}" with "50 members and counting" or whatever you feel comfortable with. Again, it's important that you indeed have some close friends in your network before they come in.
  4. Did I mention profile questions? Yes I did,

Dear GROU.PS Users,

Today we experienced a 4 hours long period of downtime between 8am and 12pm EET.

The problem was caused by one of our database servers. A slave database halted due to a disk failure and unexpectedly it took all servers down with itself. 

The problem has been resolved now. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We understand how important 100% uptime is for you. We're still investigating why the disk failure occurred and we'll keep you updated. We're working hard to make sure this won't repeat itself.


The GROU.PS Team
