Phanfare Refreshes Web Client


Photo sharing site Phanfare today announced enhancements to the service’s Web client. CEO Andrew Erlichson says the most significant portion of this release is a new Web client for managing photos and videos.

In addition to a complete re-write of the user interface to adjust to screen resolutions, he said, Phanfare now shows a lot more thumbnails and displays better image transforms; new functionality has also been added to the client.

Among the new features:

• Added more navigation elements to the header ribbon that include easy access to key site areas like the friends and family list, adding friends and family, viewing messages, edit albums, etc.

• From the add friends and family page you can now preview the invitation to connect email

• From the friends and family page you can switch a connection from friend to family and vice versa by clicking on “edit connection.”

• The inbox has been re-organized to break out messages and invitations into separate tabs.

• New privacy setting to not publish news items when a new album is created. This will keep all new albums from being included in the content notifications of your friends and family.
