Today, the 25th November, is International White Ribbon Day. A day when men and women across Australia are called to wear a white ribbon or wristband as a visual symbol of their commitment and oath to never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women.
This year we made the white ribbon symbol a lot more social. Instead of having to purchase a physical ribbon or wristband to show your support, we provided every person that made a donation with a 'virtual' white ribbon that they could 'wear' on their social media profiles.
You can show your support by visiting the White Ribbon Day campaign page and taking the oath: www.whiteribbon.org.au/day
GenerationOne had been maintaining a separate desktop & mobile website since 2012. This was making it difficult to keep their content up-to-date and was becoming confusing for their users.
To resolve these issues, GenerationOne engaged Echo Communications & Creatio to redevelop their website frontend and make it responsive. The result, which launched today, is a user-friendly interface that automatically resizes to fit the device its being viewed on, whether its a desktop computer, tablet or smartphone.
Check out the new GenerationOne website here: www.generationone.org.au

We recently launched a major upgrade to the Farmz.com.au social network. Previously only farmers could join the social network (i.e. you needed to own or be working on a farm).
However with this update comes the ability for individual profiles to join the site - that is, anyone living & working within the agriculture industry.
This update tops off a series of updates to Farmz.com.au that have been launched over the past several months, including: a community photos section showcasing the most popular photos shared by Aussie farmers; a rainfall calendar to keep track of your daily/monthly/annual rainfall; and the ability to post multiple photos in the newsfeed.

Today we launched an exciting new feature for the Schoolparents social network: a Marketplace.
The Schoolparents Marketplace allows members to buy, sell or giveaway items. And being a social network you are able to see and share items that your friends are selling. You can also find items related to your child's school (e.g. uniforms).
During the launch period the Schoolparents Marketplace is currently free for members to use - so you can post your items for sale without paying any fees! However if you'd like your ads to appear at the top (i.e. featured) you can pay a small upgrade fee.
You can checkout the Schoolparents Marketplace right here: www.schoolparents.com.au/marketplace (you don't need to be a member to view the marketplace, but you do need to be a member if you'd like to purchase or enquire about or purchase any items)
