My Telegraph launches new look in beta

My Telegraph, the newspaper’s community site, has launched a new look in beta. It went live yesterday, running on BuddyPress and uses the Disqus comment system.

In an introductory post, the team says it has introduced some “significant changes” to the ways readers are able to interact with Telegraph.co.uk. Changes include the introduction of discussion groups for different subject areas; a feature allowing users to add ‘friends’ and simplification of the registration process.

Telegraph goes for the hard sell

Will Lewis’ revenge? Desperate times for TMG? Perhaps not, but it’s likely this wasn’t intended to show up on My Telegraph, the newspaper’s reader community site, first launched in 2007

Hat-tip: Drew Broomhall, who tweets: “While The Times erect a paywall, the Telegraph help erect something else with viagra spam.”

We’ll report back later.

Update. A spokesperson from TMG informs us:

“We have been aware of this issue for some time and have raised it as a priority with the third party that hosts and manages My Telegraph.

“Needless to say we take problems with spam very seriously and are doing every we can to sort this out.”
