Miiverse Update Allows Screenshots As Favourite Posts and Additional Community Info
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Share your favourite Communities with the world
The Miiverse platform is continually being updated by Nintendo, with the recent addition of line breaks not necessarily blowing minds, but doing its part to improve the service. We've seen posts support more characters, improvements to the profile layout and options, and more besides.
Yet another update has just been confirmed, this time allowing more customisation to Miiverse profiles. Whereas previously you could only pin a handwritten post as a 'favourite' on your profile, you can now do the same with a screenshot; likewise if you have selected some communities as favourites you can display them on your profile, too.
Below are the details from that lovable Nintendo of Europe Miiverse rogue, Marty — the updated features should be the same in all regions.
1) On all versions of Miiverse, you can now set a screenshot as your favourite post. Previously you could only set a handwritten post, but now you can set a screenshot too! Open one of your own posts that has a screenshot attached, select the settings button (the spanner icon), choose the "Set Screenshot as Favourite Post" option, and add the screenshot to your profile screen from there. You can remove a favourite post by going to Profile Settings (in the same way that you add and remove handwritten posts).
You can set any screenshot you want from a game, such as a high score or the moment you pulled off an amazing move, so this should provide more flexibility for you to decorate your profile in style!
2) On the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of Miiverse, you can now display your favourite communities on your profile. Previously, your favourite communites were only visible to you, but now you can share them with others if you wish. If you choose to share them, your favourite communities will appear on your profile as icons. Go to User Page => Profile Settings and choose whether your favourite communities should be public, visible to friends only, or private under the new menu option "Who should be able to see your favourite communities?"
-If you're already using Miiverse, this option will be set by default to "Keep Private".
-User communities will not be displayed on your profile.
Are you happy with these changes, and what further tweaks do you still want to see on Miiverse? Let us know.
