Like all persons and organizations adapting and improving is essential. OutBüro is no different. We’ve recently been making site changes and we think and hope you’ll love it. It is all for you.
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.
Shift to Members Subscription
OutBüro has moved away from an employer-centric model to a model focused on YOU and YOUR interests and YOUR full self. We’ve been asked by numerous people over quite some time to be broader than a professionally focused only. After long deep thought, we have decided to move to a membership subscription model. It also allows OutBuro.com to provide a greater level of services improving your experience. It also provides you an opportunity to create residual income and other befits listed below which if you choose, makes you a central part of the OutBüro community.
As a member subscription model, OutBüro will be free from Google Ads and other similar programmatic ads. At some point, we may be open to direct placement ads, but that’s nowhere in the near future and would be very limited.
- Not logged-in site visitors are granted 7 page views a month before being presented the option to become a site-subscribed member.
- Free members are granted access to all site articles and 7 page views a month to groups, profiles, and other members’ profiles.
- Yearly/monthly members are granted full site access including the option to post content to the site’s blog and the option to become an affiliate/influencer with residual income earning potential.
Groups and Profiles/Members is Subscriber-only access. Join/create groups you are interested in.
Groups are now categorized into up to 3 categories:
Added user and members support tool that provides live chat support, a new integrated growing knowledge base, and a support ticketing system.
Searching, viewing, connecting, and direct messaging other members is now part of the yearly/monthly subscriptions. A huge benefit to being subscription-based is trust and safety.
Trust and Safety
Every site subscriber has been validated to be human to the best of PayPal’s Fraud Detection technology. We know firsthand how frustrating it is to connect with other “persons” online to only quickly see patterns of phishing techniques.
OutBüro has 2+ layers of firewalls, monitoring, and other technical security features. We naturally don’t want to over-describe it.
Content within the community can be reported. Each report is evaluated by the OutBüro team. If any content is reported 3+ times it is immediately removed from public view awaiting moderation.
You control what groups you join/leave, who you connect with, etc.
You control the visibility of your profile to the field level, where and how you receive notifications, who may direct message your, you may block other members, you may download your community data, and more. See the knowledge base for more.
We’ve implemented a site vistor and member support system that has live-chat, a growing knowledge base for self service support, and ticketing system all in one system for ease of use, consistancy, and issue tracking to better serve you.
