    Signup Code is required, and it is Case-Sensitive.!

  2. Visit https://refynr.com. Spend no more than 5-10 seconds on the home page. What do you think Refynr is?

    As defined on your homepage: Refynr is a web-based Social Network client that filters your Twitter & Facebook feeds

    What do you think of the sign up process?

    Well, requesting a beta key on Twitter is sort of a hassle when trying to do a usability review because that means I have to wait on a code before moving forward. 

    What did you like, or not like, about setting up Filter Lists for your streams?

    I will have to come back to this question if/when I receive beta code.

    Would you consider paying a small month fee for an account (after a 15-day Trial)? If not, why?

    Probably not.  I don’t have a need to filter my streams at this point.

    Please share any additional feedback/ideas/comments you might have.

    Since getting a code may take some time, I will go ahead give suggestions on your current homepage.

    1. Too many words on homepage.  Your brand is being overwhelmed by information overload.
    2. “Filter Twitter. Filter Facebook. Back up Twitter and Facebook on Refynr” is in the spot where a motto or catchy tagline would be to really build your brand.  But these current fragments are not catchy, not memorable and do not add value to your brand.
    3. I think you need a better picture to add value to your brand as well.  You have a little color with your logo but really that is it.  Your black and white motif currently suggests that your brand is boring and the visitor has to wade through a lot of text to try and figure out what you do.
    4. Other than “Twitter Filtered” and “Facebook filtered” – which is what you do – I don’t see your selling points emphasized in a concise manner that is easy to see.  If a visitor has to read all your text to find your selling points, then it is not doing justice to your brand.  I recommend that you cut down on the information overload.  Get out a piece of paper and write down your selling points of why you are better than other competitors or other companies related.  Have your selling points emphasized on your homepage in a manner where they are not hard to find.
    5. You have a screen shot of a filter list on homepage.  Shouldn’t this be on a page that explains “How it works”?  You are assuming that the visitor wants to use your product before they really even know what it is.  Brand your service/product and make the visitor want it before showing a screenshot.
    6. The Daily Emails section does not make me interested in your brand.  Keep in mind that most people already get spam and too many emails they don’t want.  By adding this section to your homepage, you are lumping your brand in with spammers, which can have a negative affect on  your image. 

  3. hi @Zeke – great feedback so far!
    try Beta1User 🙂
    For the Beta Code, did you not want to follow and DM @Refynr to get the code?
    For your other feedback…

    If I were to reduce the words on the home page, which feature descriptions should I remove?
    Good point!
    Yes, I am a bit design-challenged. I’ll work on it
    Point taken.
    I had a lot of previous feedback that I should show how it works a little bit on the home page, so that people understand it. The slide show shows a sneak peak, and signups for the Alpha version really increased after I added that to the home page
    Sounds like a Feature I should remove from the home page, even though it’s one the favorites of my Alpha testers…

    Thank you, and I look forward to follow-up feedback from you!

  4. Aaron,
    At time of review, I did log into twitter with account ‘Catlivesat’ and followed refynr.  I attempted to send Direct Message, but my account said you can only send a direct message if that person is also following you.  Since you have replied with Beta1User I have logged in and created a filtered search. It worked as expected.  However, this is not a feature that I would want to pay for at this time. If I had a business that depended heavily on using Twitter, then I might be interested.

    As for your homepage User Interface. I was trying to point out that you need to focus on your brand (and displaying your brand as a premium product).  Take out a blank sheet of paper and write down ideas of how you can really build your brand. 

    Suggestions:
    1. A picture that shows you are premium or adds value.  You have a logo, which is good.  The slideshow that shows how it works is not bad, but it is for those who want to see that.  How about putting a button on your homepage that says, “Take a Tour” or “See how it works” and have your screenshots on another page that is linked to this button.
    If you have no idea what to do for a picture consider this:  Your brand relies heavily on Twitter and Facebook, so you might want to incorporate using their logo in this picture.  Other twitter applications do this, typically with a mascot or image.  Refynr makes me think of a smelting machine or red-hot furnace where gold is melted.  Perhaps you want to build on this and have a picture of a hot iron going into the fire with a Twitter or Facebook logo incorporated on the furnace, showing that you are streamlining searches.

    2. When you say “Twitter, filtered” and “Facebook, filtered” it seems like it would be easier to just say Filter Facebook and Filter Twitter and take out the commas and periods.  These seems simple enough, I don’t see the need to expound or have to explain in detail what filtering is – under Twitter, filtered and facebook, filtered.

    3. Keep your gear icon and have a one line selling point: Set up to 20 filters; Keep Chrome icon and say: Works great in Chrome – saying works best in chrome means that the majority of us are not going to get the premium product (if we are running Internet Explorer) and you are saying we have to download chrome to get your best product. Most people will not want to get a new browser just to use your product.
    4. Using #3 you have 2 selling points.  Think of more positives for using Refynr and if you can come up with some more icons, that would look good.
    5. You don’t have to actually ask “What is refynr”. You can go ahead and say what it is, and most people will already understand how it is pronounced.  Simply put: Refynr filters social web feeds so you can browse them at your convenience.  This could be another selling point: Browse web feeds at your convenience.  Get an icon of a clockface to show that you are making it easier on the person by saving time.
    6. “Refynr keeps Twitter & Facebook Always on-Topic” does not flow out of my mouth easily.  Your motto or tagline needs to be quick, simple, and memorable.  Rhyming or alliteration does not hurt.  Something simple like: “Stay Relevant with Refynr” is easy.  You don’t need Facebook or Twitter in your tagline because this will and should be shown to the user in your homepage picture and logos.  Not needed in tagline or motto.  Other motto suggestion: “Find Keywords Fast!” or “There is no timer, when using refynr”

  5. Visit https://refynr.com
    Spend no more than 5-10 seconds on the home page. What do you think Refynr is? The page is kinda plain, but the simple design may work for you. No over crowding of images, and pretty simple descriptions make it easier to understand the point/goal of the site. 

    What do you think of the sign up process? [Use Beta Code “Beta1User”]
    Pretty easy. Quick, easy to connect to my Twitter and Facebook accounts.  What would be nice, is to be able to connect to Facebook pages that a person runs. For example, I have a page for my blog that I can access simply through my personal Facebook page. That would be the deciding factor for me here. Some businesses, and bloggers like myself have their pages like I do. I think to gain access to those markets you would want to add a feature that would allow to add those separate pages.

    What did you like, or not like, about setting up Filter Lists for your streams?
    It was pretty easy. I was able to set up a filter for an ongoing “club” (I guess thats what you would call it) that I am involved in. I was able to see only the posts that included the hashtag that I input. This is great and all, but what makes this different from viewing it on Twitter? Or on TweetDeck? or HootSuite? As far as filtering Facebook — well, I can easily block what I dont want to see on there – or un-friend someone.

    Would you consider paying a small month fee for an account (after a 15-day Trial)?If not, why?
    I would not. Like I previously mentioned, I can use HootSuite, and with that I can manage my blogs Facebook page, as well as 4 other ones – for free. And I can use it on my BlackBerry. Personally, I do not have a need for this kind of service at this time.

    Please share any additional feedback/ideas/comments you might have.
    Like I said, the simple design is nice – easy on the eyes. It is streamlined and looks professional. The colors are familiar of Facebook and Twitter, so it fits right in. It is easy to use. The font is a good size, and the pictures for Twitter are bigger than Twitter shows – so its easy to see who your talking to -literally. I like that. I like that the font is large, I don’t have to squint or use my glasses if I am viewing this site.

  6. Hi Jen,
    Thanks for the excellent, helpful feedback!
    I’ll put your idea of including FB pages as a feature to be considered. I have to think about it because Refynr is not really meant to replace HootSuite or TweetDeck. It’s focus is on filtering, and I don’t know if people want to filter their own FB page…?
    The difference with Refynr, and I guess I don’t make this clear, is that it filters _your_ Twitter timeline (which includes all the tweets and retweets from _only_ the people you follow). Twitter and other clients only let you search _all_ of Twitter, which is limited in my opinion because there’s usually a lot of garbage/spam in those searches. Secondly, while TweetDeck lets you put on a global filter, you’re limited to only a few terms, while Refynr has many more options.
    Versus Facebook, Refynr simplifies the process so don’t have to un-friend people or block certain apps. You just set it and forget it.
    The other main difference is that Refynr saves the Refyn’d feeds _permanently_, where Twitter (and I think FB) only save your feed for a limited time: about a week for Twitter. This makes a difference for searching for some people.
    And the feature that most of the users really like is the Daily Email, which sends the most recent Refyn’d feed to your inbox so you don’t have to go to a social networking site at all 🙂
    Alas, your feedback is similar to many others, which is that it doesn’t seem that special at first, but then after a couple of weeks, users typically say they changed their mind. 😀 But that means that I’m probably not marketing Refynr the best way in the first place.. Ideas?

  7. Maybe I will just have to stick with it for a while and see what happens 🙂

    I have never run into the problem of Tweet Deck only doing a few – I have had quite a few hastags up at the same time with no problems. There are times when I participate in Twitter parties (people + brands), so I will have the hashtag(s) up, as well as some accounts to watch, such as the host(ess) Twitter account, and possibly the brand for who the party is for. So being able to see all of those, at the same time, in real time – is helpful. If Refyner can do that, I know quite a few people that would probably take interest. A lot of bloggers actually lol.

    I think adding Facebook Pages would help a lot.

    Is there a way to have multiple Twitter accounts on Refyner? If not, that should be added, I know quite a few people that have more than 1 active account.

    🙂

  8. What do you think Refynr is?  It appears to be an online web application for filtering your Twitter and Facebook accounts.  The idea I received from the main page is that you can use several keywords to filter out information that does not appeal to you.
    What do you think of the sign up process?  The sign up process was easy and straight forward.  At first I found the small number of graphics to be disconcerting, however high amounts of graphic art and GIF’s are an indicator that a given site may not be legitimate.
    What did you like, or not like, about setting up Filter Lists for your streams?  The idea is sound, and the presentation is not over complicated.  If I had a high volume of posts on a given day, or used both Twitter and Facebook, this would be a product I would be interested in.
    Would you consider paying a small month fee for an account (after a 15-day Trial)? If not, why?  As long as the amount was reasonable (which for me would be $10 or under per month) then I would definitely consider using a product like this one.  I would be less inclined to use something of this type if the price were either too high, or it was mandatory to purchase some sort of contact or package.
    Please share any additional feedback/ideas/comments you might have.  Overall I find the idea to be sound and useful.  I would consider allowing people to purchase month by month ‘plans’, and offer discounts to individuals would purchase packages.  For example, $10 per month on a month by month basis, or pay $25 for three months of access (giving $5 dollars off).  Everyone loves to get a deal!

  9. Visit https://refynr.com. Spend no more than 5-10 seconds on the home page. What do you think Refynr is?

    It is basically like “feedburner”, it will provide me the feeds of what I want, from facebook and/or twitter. It basically saves anything that I selected for.

    What do you think of the sign up process? [Use Beta Code “Beta1User”]
    You got the “privacy policies” in place, but what about “terms of service”?
    Set your timezone opens the window way to big, it should just be as simple as a drop down box. It does not need to take the whole screen !
    The “How does Refynr work?” would be better placed on top I think. With only the title showind and an arrow on the side. When the arrow is clicked, a drop down box with the explanation will appear. Basically a “expand” arrow.
    The sign up process is really easy, and you do not ask too much personal things, I like it !
    What did you like, or not like, about setting up Filter Lists for your streams?
    I did not like the fact that your bottom toolbar with the tabs “Tweet”, “Networks”,… ,”Log out” are not footers, but get in the middle of the screen when there is no content, in that case no filters. Can’t it be made so that it stays at the bottom of the screen? Like a footer.
    Another thing, is that you got Inclusion 1-20 and Exclusion 1-10, is that really necessary? Why not just add a button with “Add Inclusion”, “Add exclusion” and a “remove button” as well?
    Um… I don’t know what I am supposed to write in them as well. “Words/#HashTags/Users to Include” and “Words/#HashTags/Users to Exclude”, what do they mean?
    Two buttons for “save filter list” ? I personally think only one, at the bottom is enough. And change its colours, so that it is more easily seen. Gray/grey on white is not really contrasting.

    Would you consider paying a small month fee for an account (after a 15-day Trial)? If not, why?
    No. I see no use in this website for me. And it is not really  entertaining/appealing. You got the colour blue everywhere, it makes it boring. Please consider a colour scheme of at least 3 colours (shades of blue/white/black do not count). I also don’t like how you position the tabs. Top and Bottom? Two “log out” buttons?  No actually, most of them are just repeats? And they are not even consistant. For example, when I hover over the “Account” tab, the top one gives me the text “Mange your account setting [email protected]” whereas the bottom one gives me “Manage your Refynr Account Settings”.
    Only one of those would be enough, their respective icons should be bigger. People recognise shapes first, so bigge graphics would make navigation much more easier. And include your logo as well, on each page, it makes me feel more familiar knowing that I am still on your website  !
    Please share any additional feedback/ideas/comments you might have.
    The slideshow in the homepage is not automatic, I have to manually click the arrows, change that. It is better off being automatic AND manual when needed to. I don’t like the fact  that you used “Justin Bieber” as an exclusion example, it is just degrading and you are not considering all the people out there that are his fans. If you want a website that is recognised worldwide, you should pay more attention to your examples.
    I clicked on your slides, and I came to the last slide and can’t click the right arrow anymore. Your slides should make a loop that starts again when it comes to the last slide.
    Your “Sign Up” button should be in the middle, and why do you like repeating buttons? It should also be UNDER your logo not on top or same level.

  10. Visit https://refynr.com. Spend no more than 5-10 seconds on the home page. What do you think Refynr is? Refyner is a website that you sign up with and then you can filter your Twitter and Facebook feeds. It then save those filtered feeds for you to view at your convenience.
    What do you think of the sign up process? [Use Beta Code “Beta1User”] Sign up was simple, straightforward, painless, easy. Was setting up my first filter in just a matter of a few minutes.
    What did you like, or not like, about setting up Filter Lists for your streams? All the blank boxes. The hints were nice and helpful. I would like to have seen a list of the people I follow on Twitter since that would make it easier to add, block, etc. If I could click/drag those names into the list then that would be helpful.
    Would you consider paying a small month fee for an account (after a 15-day Trial)? If not, why? Possibly. If after using the filters more found them a value, I would especially if I was using Twitter/Facebook for business somehow.
    Please share any additional feedback/ideas/comments you might have. I’ve made two filters and get 13 results on my stream – most of which are DMs. One of those is a #followfriday which I thought was checked as excluded. I will continue to play around with it because I do like the idea and the simplicity of the interface.

  11. Hi Jen,
    Helpful ideas again, thanks!
    I’m not saying that TweetDeck limits the number of stream panels, I’m saying that the global filters (which are buried in the settings somewhere) limit to only a few filters. Filters are different than search because Filters apply to your timeline (the same as on the home page of Twitter when you are logged in), and searches search ALL of twitter.
    I’ll take your other ideas into consideration, and maybe add some of them.

  12. H_game – thank you for the thorough feedback!
    Good point that I need to add a Terms of Service.
    Improving the How does it work? in the sign-up process is a good point, too
    Yes, I need to fix the footer.
    I know what you mean about having such a long list of blank filters when you start. However, I don’t want buttons to have for adding each filter item because that’s too many clicks, especially on a mobile device. But how about a compromise where I show only 5 at a time, and have an “Add 5 more” button?
    I definitely need a good web designer to help me with the color, layout, buttons, etc. It actually all looks & works much better in a mobile browser than on a desktop browser, but obviously the desktop version needs a lot more work.
    I repeat buttons & tabs so that if you’re scrolling up or down, you don’t have to scroll back up or down to perform an action.
    Good idea for an automatic slideshow, and you’re right that I shouldn’t discriminate with my filter examples.
    You have a great eye for detail, and have given me a lot to think about.

  13. Raesmom – thank you for the helpful feedback. I’ll work on making the Lists easier to use, especially the first time. Listing who you follow could be helpful, nice point.
    To be more useful, try adding at least 5-10 filter items. And you said there was a tweet with #FollowFriday or #FF in it? Was it a DM or did it Mention your twitter @username? I ask because Refynr does not filter out DMs or Mentions if they are directed at your @username.
    thank you!

  14. Thank you for your reply and kind words.
    Yes, I believe with five blank spaces and an “add five more” button is a good idea. It does not crowd the page too much, and does not limit the maximum about of parameters to be included/excluded as well. It is a great idea.
    Another idea struck me. What about enabling a box that would expand/dropdown for them inclusion/exclusion filters? So for example, you will have “Exclusion” which will be minimised, with an arrow at the side. When you click the arrow, it will expand down and thus, you are using the space the smart way and this solution does not need much clicking either !

  15. Aaron,
    That’s it. They mentioned my Twitter name. I will be adding more terms to my filters as well. Digging the daily update emails.

  16. What do you think Refynr is? a website where one can store their feeds and view them later
    What do you think of the sign up process? regular process not so complicated
    What did you like, or not like, about setting up Filter Lists for your streams? theres not much a variety for people who use stuff different from the regular websites
    Would you consider paying a small month fee for an account (after a 15-day Trial)? If not, why? i would not pay any fee cause i could handle my feeds by myself
    Please share any additional feedback/ideas/comments you might have. a pretty decent website for someone who can afford a monthly fee and likes to socialize

  17. Visit https://refynr.com. Spend no more than 5-10 seconds on the home page. What do you think Refynr is?

    It is a filter for sites like facebook and twitter. This is an amazing product, because I get so many useless status and things sent from farmville etc on facebook. This would help me to be able to check my facebook in places like work or on my phone and not have to worry about the massive amount of crap I encounter.
    What do you think of the sign up process? [Use Beta Code “Beta1User”]

    This process was super simple and I was starting to set up my filter in a matter of minutes.
    What did you like, or not like, about setting up Filter Lists for your streams?

    I think that there should be a way to filter out certain people. I get a lot of trash from certain individuals that I would like to be able to filter it out as well. Other then that I was very pleased with the setting up of my filters.
    Would you consider paying a small month fee for an account (after a 15-day Trial)? If not, why?

    Absolutely, but only if I was able to filter out everything I did not want to view constantly. I would want to filter out people and any kind of trash that I get sent daily.
    Please share any additional feedback/ideas/comments you might have.

    Overall this is a wonderful product, and with a little bit of tweeking this could be a must have for me. I hate the constant game freebies etc I get sent daily on facebook. I do not check it when I am not at home and have plenty of spare time. This helps to filter out most of my unwanted material, which is wonderful.

  18. Visit https://refynr.com. Spend no more than 5-10 seconds on the home page. What do you think Refynr is?
    It appears to be a filter for my social networks which would eliminate updates or posts from games or apps that I’m not using.

    What do you think of the sign up process? [Use Beta Code “Beta1User”]
    Seems simple enough.  An easy insertion of name, password & email address.

    What did you like, or not like, about setting up Filter Lists for your streams?
    Words, #hash tags, users / inclusion, exclusion.  These words are a big turnoff for me.  I like things plain and simple.  Sites/feeds you WANT to see on your feed.  Sites/feeds you DO NOT want to see on your feed.  Easy breezy — I like those better and since the FB & Twitter crowd seems to be more and more popular with the younger generation I believe they too would want it simplified.

    Would you consider paying a small month fee for an account (after a 15-day Trial)? If not, why?
    I would participate in the 15 day trial but no I would not pay a monthly fee no matter how small it is.  It’s a simple matter of clicking BLOCK on the feeds that post to your feed that you don’t want to see.  If I had to pay any type of fee for someone to have that done for me I would probably feel kind of dumb.

    Just a side note…if you were to charge a monthly fee I would recommend giving a couple of pricing options.  So many fees are recurring debits now it’s kind of crazy.  Personally, I don’t like anyone having the right to remove money out of my account on a monthly basis without me giving the OK each and every time.  With the economy the way it is there are bound to be additional stresses on personal finances these days and sometimes it’s easy to forget what is supposed to come out of your account every month.

    On the other side of that coin perhaps you could offer an email reminder to go out to all users of Refynr who do pay a monthly price to let them know the money is fixing to be deducted from their account.

    Please share any additional feedback/ideas/comments you might have.
    These are a couple of small things but they did bug me so I’ll mention them.  In the opening paragraph when you introduce us to Refynr why is there a need to emphasize it is pronounced “refiner?”  I feel the name Refynr illustrates how it is said perfectly and I felt as if my intelligence was being questioned with the addition.

    The font used on the site that is kind of a light teal color is very…what is the word…elementary maybe?  It doesn’t look professional.  Maybe you could choose a more fun color or font that still looked fresh and hip but also business like?  Not sure why but for some reason the blue color is much more appealing to my eyes.  The teal outline on the site kind of screams at me and makes me want to squint.

    Just my humble opinions mind you.  Hope I was able to help and have a pleasant rest of your evening.

  19. Oh dear…sorry my questions did not turn out bold 🙁  I typed this up in Google docs then transferred it here but I guess the bold didn’t make it.

  20. Hi Melanie,
    Thanks for the helpful feedback. I’m glad you like it!
    There is indeed a way to filter out certain people. For Facebook, simply enter their name as an Exclusion filter. For Twitter, you can also enter the Twitter username (without the @), as an Exclusion and they will be refined out.
     

  21. Hi TipsyTurtle,
    Thanks for the thorough feedback!
    Refynr is not only about filtering out checkins, apps, and games. It’s really about creating a good list of up to 20 interests/topics. Then, only what you’re interested in shows up in your feeds.
    Good points about using simpler language for the filters. Heavier users of Twitter know what I mean, but newer users wouldn’t, you’re right.
    Keep in mind that Refynr filters your Home Timeline in Twitter. Any given person you follow probably does not tweets stuff that you are interested in 100% of the time, even though hopefully at least 50% of their tweets are interesting to you. With good filters, Refynr cuts out the 50% tweets (or FB posts) that are not interesting to you. Otherwise, as you point out you will either be manually skipping many tweets and/or constantly unfollowing/blocking people who _sometimes_ tweet/post lame content. But understand Refynr is not for everyone. The most common user has between 100-1,000 people (s)he follows on Twitter, and quite a few FB friends, too.
    Thanks for the pricing suggestions. I will try out different pricing models during the Beta phase, and see what works best.
    I put the pronunciation of Refiner there because when I meet people and show them my Refynr shirt, about half of them can’t pronounce it initially. And I have had feedback that the Refynr spelling is confusing. Maybe long-term, I’ll need to rename it…
    I changed up the color scheme to use the blue as a background, and agree it looks better. What do you think now?

  22. YES!!  The new color scheme is quite pleasing to the eye.  I didn’t squint at all and my eyes were very happy 🙂

  23. What do you think Refynr is?
    i think it’s an app just like social media, meaning opens your twitter or facebook…. however this  “weeds” out the sites you dont want to network with, and find ones that would network with

    What do you think of the sign up process?

    it’s pretty normal from what i saw.

    What did you like, or not like, about setting up Filter Lists for your streams?
    it changed the ip address and that stopped the whole stream entirely.

    Would you consider paying a small month fee for an account (after a 15-day Trial)? If not, why?
    maybe, i would have download the trial and play around with the software first….

    Please share any additional feedback/ideas/comments you might have.
    not at this time.

  24. Visit https://refynr.com. Spend no more than 5-10 seconds on the home page. What do you think Refynr is? I think that Refyner is an easy way to keep up with Facebook and Twitter. That sounds like a great way to decrease the time I spend on the social networks waiting for something to happen. When it happens, I will get an email to read later. I also won’t have to worry about missing something while I’m on vacation.
    What do you think of the sign up process? [Use Beta Code “Beta1User”] I thought that the sign up process was super easy. I’m pretty sure that my 10 year old, if he were old enough to have a FB account, could have gone through the process without any trouble. I also like that there was a password strength indicator so that I could figure out if I was making a worthwhile password.

    What did you like, or not like, about setting up Filter Lists for your streams? I like that it will be easy to add to the filter lists in the future because I couldn’t think of all the people, words, and #hashtags I wanted to include or exclude the first time around.  I like that “words” can be added to the list so that I can follow or avoid keeping track of which games or sites people are keeping up with.
    Would you consider paying a small month fee for an account (after a 15-day Trial)? If not, why? To begin with, it depends on how easy the messages are to read. I think that it would be excellent if I could see an example of what a message would look like before I enter any information- like a lot of people, I am leery about entering information about myself if I’m not sure that I’ll enjoy it, even though the privacy policy states that my info will not be sold or shared.

    I also think that it depends on how the money will be acquired by the refyner.com. I would like to have at least a few choices: visa, master card, paypal, etc. I would like to know if I could get  a discount by signing up for a few months, 6 months, a year, etc. over month to month. How easy would it be to sign up for a contract after a few months’ membership? How easy would it be to cancel if I choose not to use FB or Twitter?

    Please share any additional feedback/ideas/comments you might have. I would like to know if I could get a daily or weekly digest. Some people may not want to have a daily digest. If I get a weekly digest, may I choose which day it arrives? What time of day should I expect the message to arrive? Is it possible to put a “vacation” setting onto my account in the event that I’m lucky enough to go on vacation, but do not want to keep track of what happened while I’m away or pay for the service while I’m away?

  25. is there a way to filter “keywords”.  i like my buddies and friends but frankly dont want to hear their rants about Jesus or the lord.  facebook is not a chuch and i dont care to ready their dillusions ….

  26. Hi S.E. – Yes, that’s the whole idea with Refynr: to filter out certain keywords, topics, or friends without having to block or unfollow the friend completely. Let me know if you have further questions
