With online community search for friends and make new connections is obviously become a lot easier. University alumni community which accommodates unique and specialized relationship among college alumni soon become the right place for fresh graduates to build their full potential and networks.
Following the trends of increasing popularity of the online community, founder of www.onlyalumni.com created a new online community specialized for all college alumni. All you need to do to take advantage of this is register yourself for free. Free membership on this forum is obviously become strong magnet for a new user to follow on registration.
Once a new user has been registered they can start to build relationship with other members. Searching feature on this alumni community helps member to find smaller group which shares similar interest. For example a user who graduates from Ohio State University located in Columbus, OH may join Ohio State University Alumni group, a graduates of San Diego State University located in San Diego, CA could join San Diego State Alumni group or graduates of Illinois State University located in Normal, IL may join to Illinois State University Alumni group. Those groups are only small example of alumni groups available in College alumni community, but if they couldn’t find their alumni group they could start a new group easily.
Within the alumni group, user can shares ideas through messages, asking questions, sharing images or creating event reminder. Those sharing method has been the main attraction and important feature of an online community. However without active participation of their members a group will be less attractive.
Messages or photo sharing within specialized groups are readable by other community members even if they are not the group members. However to post a message or commenting on shared photos, a member must register to the group. This procedure prevents spamy comments by unregistered user.
I think the founder of OnlyAlumni.com has a smart decision when selecting the script to run this forum. The forum is running on Drupal, an engine script to setup or build a community driven website. However the founder has modified the default themes of drupal to add a unique forum user interface. With strong security support from Drupal, users of college community are safe to share their information within their groups and starting to build their interests.
