Miiverse Now More Like Nintendo-Twitter

Miiverse for Nintendo fans has seemed quite a bit like the popular social networking sites of the current time, but a recent update has subtly pushed the service into even more of a Twitter-like state. Users of Miiverse are now able to post comments on anything they like in their Activity Feed—unlike before, when comments had to be tied into a specific game-related community area.

This update definitely positions Miiverse as a service for more social interaction, especially now that there’s an option to “follow” various users and receive updates on their posts. You’re even able to follow someone who has a full friend list and still see their Activity Feed.

We’ve seen and heard recently how Miiverse is a part of Nintendo’s current strategy to boost brand awareness and brand loyalty, and this is just one more step in the plan of cross-media integration. With the recent browser-based version of the service becoming available and added functionality, it truly has become the social network for Nintendo fans.

Faith likes games and books and cake and writing and Lara Croft, not necessarily in that order. She also thinks a Skylanders cartoon show is a really, REALLY good idea...
