Miiverse Update Changes Profiles in New User Page, Adds a Couple of Extra Features
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Set favourite posts and 'Yeah' comments
Miiverse, Nintendo's continually evolving bespoke social network, has had another update applied today. This time around there are improvements — at least we think they are — to all three versions across Wii U, 3DS and web browsers.
To start with, there's now a revamped User Page, with the User Menu of before now relegated to sub-menu status, while you can now also give 'Yeah' votes to comments on posts; if someone makes a witty remark in response to your musings or drawings, you can now show your approval. A neat feature on the Wii U and 3DS, meanwhile, is that you can set hand-written or drawn posts as a favourite, and they'll then be displayed in your updated User Page profile — ideal for sharing a drawing of which you're particularly proud, for example.
The official update post is below, though the new User Page is partially featured in the web browser version too — albeit with less substantial changes — despite the wording of Nintendo's announcement.
There has been an update to Miiverse today.
1) (For Wii U and Nintendo 3DS only)
We have replaced the User Menu in the menu bar with an option called "User Page", which leads to a new and refurbished profile.
For example, you can now display a favourite handwritten post in your profile. Just select any one of your old handwritten posts, touch the spanner icon, then select "Set as Favourite Post" and it will appear in your profile! If you later want to remove it, you can do so from the Profile Settings in the User Page.
By the way, the User Menu is now accessible from within the User Page.
2) (For all versions of Miiverse)
It's now possible to give a Yeah to comments, as well as to posts. You can also touch or click on a comment to see some of the people who gave it a Yeah.
That's it for today!
