Site Blog (7)
We went dark in opposition to SOPA & PIPA today. Please take this serious as if this bill were to be passed in the Senate this site will most likely have to shut it's online doors to avoid being in violation of a law.

"We know about the Big 3 – Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. However, joining an online community specifically for your profession is kind of like going to an industry party. You know that everyone there is focused on what you do. Now, it’s up to you to use it the right way to make things happen. Here are 4 places you should definitely be in addition to the Big 3." -Read the full blog
Now you have the ability to know when your friends birthday is coming up and wish them a Happy one. Gifts are optional off course but a post on their page saying Happy Birthday can brighten up their day!
So put this new feature to use!
Updates, huh? What updates?
We've been working hard on testing some new site enhancements.
Here is a list of some updates you should expect to see on ActorsConnect.com:
Now you can conveniently invite your Facebook friends using the built-in friends inviter. You can add friends by simply checking on their Facebook photos. Location: Friends > Invite friends
Improved Share Box
The new share box allows you to share status updates, post photos or videos, and create events all in one place.
The new toolbar will have distinctive notifications for friend requests, private messaging, group invites and others.
Enhanced Social Stream
Replacing the old activity stream, Social Stream is much more interactive with 'comment' and 'like' system, all-in-one sharebox.
Members of ActorsConnect.com will notice a new update to the community and it's the ability to chat with other online members. We are beta testing this feature and hopefully you'll find it useful. You can set your privacy settings and online status via the "my applications" tab and chat window.
Report any issues found to me directly or via the forum.
Happy New Year Everyone!
Welcome 2011 and let the success rub off on each and everyone.
If you are still thinking about your resolution or need to kick start your resolution then why not start by creating your free profile and connecting with community members who can help move your career forward!
It's finally here!! After nearly a year in the making, due to a lot of side work...ahem acting :)...the newest version is ready to be used. Registration to the site has been opened up once again and it's as live as you are going to get!!
We kept a lot of what you are used to seeing primarily castings, member profiles, forum and we have added some new things like Facebook integration, multiple profiles selection, group events and many new little things to give our niche an edge.
What's on the roadmap for 2011? Well hopefully more acting jobs and less web work but if I happen to have some down time I'll work on whatever you want me to add. Drop a line in the forum with your suggestions and I'll add them to the queue.
1. If you've logged in to the site in the past two weeks and updated your profile, I may not have had a chance to migrate your newest data over. Sorry, I had a lot to do and honestly couldn't get to it. I'm working on a way to keep all the data while working on the new stuff completely in sync so this won't happen again.
2. If you've reached the site and you clicked on a link but today it's not working, best suggestion is to do a search for the title of the casting you were looking for and let me know if you really can't find it.
3. You'll notice that ads have been removed from the site. No I didn't hit the lotto or pick up new sponsors. I'm still privately funding the site and covering the cost of the operation of the site. So although I won't add too many ads to the site, there will be some to generate revenue to cover the cost of hosting and the likes.
4. Have ideas and want to team up with me to grow the site? Drop me a line and lets chat!
Ok, enough of my ramblings, enjoy the site and remember... Stay connected!!
