Miiverse Smile

After a major Wii U system update this week, Nintendo has applied a smaller yet potentially rather popular update to its bespoke Miiverse social network, with tweaks that will give users a little more freedom on the platform. The ever evolving platform's changes have been applied across the Wii U, 3DS and web browser versions, in one case scaling back an unpopular change from earlier this year.

The update has lowered the mandatory waiting time between successive comments on a post from three minutes to two minutes, which is likely to be welcomed by more more enthusiastic users. Posts can now be longer, too, allowing up to 400 characters, while notifications and the Activity Feed have changes to check out. Full details from the official Miiverse post are below.

There has been an update to all versions of Miiverse today.

1) The time you have to wait between comments when making successive comments on someone else's post has been reduced from 3 minutes to 2 minutes.

2) You can now use up to 400 characters in each post and comment you write on Miiverse. Hopefully this should help everyone fit their hints and tips into a single post!

3) Your notifications screen can now display up to 50 notifications. We're considering adding an option to disable notifications for when you receive a Yeah, but that will be in a future update.

4) Your Activity Feed now shows posts that your friends or people you're following have given a Yeah to. You'll only see their most recent Yeah, though, so no need to worry about it filling up your feed.

That's it for today!

So there you have it. Are you pleased with these changes?
