It's not everyday you meet people who love style and creativity as much as you do. That's part of why we developed Polyvore -- to help you connect with people whose taste inspires you. That's why the first page you see when you log into Polyvore is My Home, a personalized page of styles from your contacts & groups.
Today we've added some new sections to My Home to help make it easier to connect with your contacts and and see the styles they love:
Contacts' Collections. Collections are a treasure trove of interesting themed content, like futuristic looks and how to dress like Glee. Lately we've noticed an increase in the number of collections created, so we wanted to make it easier to see your contacts' collections.
Questions from My Contacts. Never miss a request for help from a friend! When your contacts ask a question in the Style Advice section, it'll show up instantly on your My Home page.
Contests. Members tell us they LOVE to participate in contests, and are bummed when they miss the entry deadline or don't know which contests are running. We always make sure to have great contests running with cool prizes from brands like Tommy Hilfiger, YSL, Levi's, and Prabal Gurung.
Contests in My Groups. Group contests are just as important as our site-wide contests, so we've also added a section for you to browse contests from your groups.
In addition to these changes, we've also streamlined the Recent Activity stream to be a bit cleaner, and we've removed the Ideas tab from the editor because it wasn't used very often.
We hope these changes help you connect more deeply with the other creative minds on Polyvore!
