What’s New and How to Upgrade

Recently OutBuro.com has gone through many technical changes to better serve the community in a broader way from its initial concept. As a registered member, you are likely aware it was previously striving to focus purely on the professional side of life. We’ve opened it up to be more general while still providing professionally oriented groups and retaining professional aspects of the member profile. It’s your choice on what you complete in your profile, the groups you join, how you engage, and who you connect with and direct message with. Check out the Is OutBüro a Dating Site? in the growing Knowledge Base article.

What’s new?

Hope you’ve noticed, but if not take a moment and refresh this screen. DANG, that was fast. Yes, we’ve made lots of changes to our technical architecture focused on security, speed, reliability, and growth.

OutBüro has moved away from an employer-centric model to a model focused on YOU and YOUR interests and YOUR full self.

It is now a member subscription model free from Google Ads and other similar ads. Groups and Profiles/Members is Subscriber-only access. Essentially removing a free membership also means less likely to have spammers on the site. It also allows OutBuro.com to provide a greater level of services improving your experience.

Groups are now categorized into up to 3 categories:

  • General
  • Professional
  • Men
  • Women
  • Transgender
  • Regional
  • Lifestyle

Check out the Joining and Creating Groups Knowledge Base article.

Features and Options Preferences on OutBuro lgbtq social media online community network networking gay men m4m lesbians woman bisexual transgender queer

Control Your Experience

We are striving to build an online global LGBTQ+ community with robust features welcoming you to be your whole self. You control what, who, how, when, etc. on OutBüro.

Why not?

But before that here are some recently adopted site member subscription models to really partner with the full community for anyone wanting to thrive together. We now offer everyone or entity (business, charity, non-profit, NGO, PAC, political campaign if doable, organization, etc.) the ability to earn a side income in a few ways.

We think you are talented, unique, creative, informed, a constant seeker, a connector, and a doer.

So why not allow you to earn a good portion of the membership revenue by sharing the site/app. That’s optional as well as earning by submitting articles for the site such as news, informative, press releases, educational, promotional, commentary, investigative, lifestyle, entertainment, announcements, etc.

Let’s get connected and do amazing things.

Smoking hot

As of May 2022 in addition to the broadening of the site, we also implemented a cloud architecture. What does that mean for you? Version 1.0 in the US and Canada would fully load in a whopping 12-17 seconds. Trimming our features and focusing on the core along with many other technical changes the site is now in the United States and Canada fully loaded in .5-1 second. Sure lots of variables, but from turtle to rabbit. All for you. So get connected. Get started today.
