Hello SMPers – it’s me, your favorite Space Friend . I’m checking in today to announce a cool new addition to the gamification here in Social Media Pulse.
You can navigate there from the hamburger menu:
What does the leaderboard track?
While you may not have known it, your activity in SMP has been earning you points, which we call Stars, since you joined:
The leaderboard shows an infinite scrolling list of who has earned the most in descending order:
Got it – so what do I do to earn Stars?
Glad you asked!
- You have to be logged in – repeat, NOTHING YOU DO IN SMP WILL RECORD STARS IF YOU ARE NOT LOGGED IN
- The below actions earn you Stars:
- Visiting the community
- Liking posts and/or replies
- Receiving Likes on your posts and/or replies
- Reading posts and/or replies
- Creating posts and/or replies
- Having your response marked as a solution
To toggle the leaderboard for Stars earned today, the last week, the last month, the last quarter and the last year (which is the same as all-time until March 14, 2023), click the arrow at top-left:
Take a look to see the who’s who of who’s fueling Social Media Pulse, find yourself on the list and keep an eye out for @yourspacefriend, cus I’ll be making the rounds every month to let everyone know who is running up the board …
Not to mention, we already have a New User of the Month Badge that we award based on earned Likes.
And we’ll now also have a Space Friend of the Month Badge for monthly leaderboard winners …
Buh-buh-but wait there’s more!!!
So get out there and make the #top-3, or, if you’re feeling lazy, the #top-10 – but if you’re really feeling yourself, go out there and win a #new-user-of-month and/or #user-of-month, Space Friends!!!
We’ll see you out there and stay tuned, because we’re going to have more badge and #leaderboard fun on the way soon …
And, on that front, we created and backdated leaderboard announcements for every month so far – check them out (and see if you made it!):
