This is the latest cumulative updates post; we’ve started two years ago by adding informations about updates in this blog every 2 months; then, at the start of this year, we have changed and adjusted the publish time with a post in every every 3 months. In these two years we mantained all our promises and expectations and never missed an update post to inform our users about news and improvements on MYETV. We have made great strides and, since we realized we were being watched by the other giants, we’ve improved the whole platform day by day, devoting time, space and part of our life. Sometimes we have written and anticipated too much; this will never happen again. At the end of these updates we will no longer need to create new ones, but the whole platform will be continuously updated and the major features will be presented as usual in this blog.
In these 3 months we will close the updates chapter with surprises and holidays … We are waiting for Halloween 2019 and Christmas 2019 with important features that we will update every day keeping you informed on the path of the work. Let’s start building this last updates chapter:
- 1st SURPRISE: The time has come to play with time… From the 18 October 2019 and all the whole week to follow we are focused to add two new features: the “program content for the future” and the “change privacy settings in the future”; the first one will be available for everyone at the moment of the publish of the content while the second one will be available as “MYAPP” in the edit content section.
- 2nd SURPRISE: The website at adplatform.myetv.tv will be completely upgraded with a new custom store and a place to see and explore merchandises with the MYETV‘s trademarks. Advertisement division and the new MYETV Store will be together. A new blog post will be published when all will be ready to go.
- 3rd SURPRISE: added 4 new coloured themes: Black and Goldenrod, White and Goldenrod, Red & Serenity, Yellow and Blue. These new themes comes at the eve of the holidays; for these festivisties we turn back to the old school design releasing our beloved goldenrod color in two different prospectives.
- We’ve partnered with Amazon Associate to start building a better and safe advertising network and start testing some new functionalities that will be the core of the advertising platform for everyone; where the advertising is controlled by this platform, thanks to Amazon Associate we can deliver safe dinamic ads in 6 Languages in all the Europe and in the rest of the world. The advertising network of MYETV is opening (partially in test) and will be opened to new advertisers soon.
- SEO: added a message at the top of the page for unregistered users and increased the font size for mobile devices. The speed and the performance of the entire platform has been visibly improved for all the browsers by optimizing the delivery of all the files needed to load the platform; a test to check the speed and the performance in all the world has been done:
- PEER-TO-PEER COMMUNICATIONS: we are proud today to announce our first peer-to-peer internal communications for registered or unregistered users; we decide to use this new technology to prevent abuses inside the platform; this is an invisible key change. The nature of the website is to be must open possible to everyone. Before this feature, we cannot send any direct messages to visitors or unregistered users; now we can send direct real-time notification messages also to unregistered users when they are navigating inside the platform. This will work also for instantly blocking particular malicious requests in case of any emergency. This is done by creating a “fingerprint” of the users and store them in a secure way in the client side and in the server side to be reachable in the near future or in the instant. We will explain better this feature in the next days in a separated blog post.
- ENCRYPTION TRANSPARENCY: added a new key, in the edit profile section of the personal account, called “Peer-toPeer Communications Key”; this key is used to identify the user’s device; the key is personal, unique and is visible only to the logged user. The key is used n the platform to connect a device to another device.
- INSIGHTS (cronjobs): from the 22/12/2019 we’ve started some new automatic job (or cronjob) inside the database, at every 00:00GMT of every day the artificial intelligence will count and sanitize all the insights data to make them certified in a separate table and make them available to the public; this process will reset all the “Most Watched” features every day and it will improve all the performance of the entire platform by reading only the stored certified data, first.
