All Things oDesk
November 19, 2009 by Josh Breinlinger

We're happy to announce a few small, yet important changes to the group profiles.

We launched groups several months ago in order to give providers a way to differentiate themselves based on their expertise and give buyers a way to find the experts. Groups are like little expert marketplaces within the overall oDesk network.

So what's new?
Each group now features new metrics designed to highlight its quality and success:

  • Group member average rates and average feedback
  • Overall oDesk average rates and feedback
  • Total number of jobs posted to the group
  • RSS feed of recent job posts to the group

And we've cleaned up some of the interface to display group members in a clearer format. We hope you like the changes.

We're also happy to have some great partners on board as sponsors of groups, including Yahoo!, Network Solutions, Joomla!, Drupal, Salesforce.com, Intuit, Zend, and many more.
