Philly.com introduces Badgeville

0 comments

Philly.com is excited to announce the launch of a fun new feature geared toward creating and rewarding a stronger community of users on the site.

Starting today, registered users will begin collecting points and virtual rewards - trophies and badges - for completing certain activities on Philly.com: visiting the site, reading articles and commenting on stories.

Throughout the site and on your My Profile page, you’ll see a few ‘widgets’ displaying top users and current activity on Philly.com. Your point total and trophies will also appear each time you leave a comment.

If you’re not a registered user on the site, click here to register and join the fun.

Powered by Badgeville, winner of the 2010 Audience Choice award at TechCrunch Disrupt, this feature opens a new frontier of combining content with community. We realize many of our users are very passionate and active on Philly.com, and are excited to recognize their dedication in a fun and engaging way.

More activities will be added in the future (sharing stories on Facebook and Twitter is in the works), and we would love your feedback on how this functionality could enhance your Philly.com experience. You can leave us comments below or email badges@philly.com.
