In this digital age of news delivery we are looking into how to further enhance this site and how we bring the news to you. If you follow us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) you are already accustomed to our near real-time/live updates and notifications of breaking news, product announcements, exclusive reveals and in-stock availability of in-demand products.
That said, we are researching the implementation of push notifications transmitted to you via your phone, tablet, and desktop computers for even faster news delivery as we know you can’t be online every where at once. The notifications would be opt-in of course but we wanted to take your temperature on this first before implementing that functionality (if at all).
If you have an opinion on the matter, feel free to leave a comment. If received positively, we’d look for it to go into effect February 1.
