Miiverse Update Allows Screenshots Posted as Favorite Post Option

It seems that we’re letting you know about Miiverse updates every other week or so, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it means that Nintendo continues to care about their social media platform, even fine-tuning down to tweaks like adding line breaks to make posts easier to read.

With the newest update, Miiverse profiles can be even further customized. Previous to the update, users were only able to pin a handwritten post on their profile as a “favorite,” but now screenshots are being added to the mix. You can also add communities selected as favorites to your profile display.

It seems that these feature updates are the same across all regions, so here’s a breakdown from the Miiverse as to what the update exactly allows you to do:

1) On all versions of Miiverse, you can now set a screenshot as your favourite post. Previously you could only set a handwritten post, but now you can set a screenshot too! Open one of your own posts that has a screenshot attached, select the settings button (the spanner icon), choose the “Set Screenshot as Favourite Post” option, and add the screenshot to your profile screen from there. You can remove a favourite post by going to Profile Settings (in the same way that you add and remove handwritten posts).

You can set any screenshot you want from a game, such as a high score or the moment you pulled off an amazing move, so this should provide more flexibility for you to decorate your profile in style!

2) On the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of Miiverse, you can now display your favourite communities on your profile. Previously, your favourite communites were only visible to you, but now you can share them with others if you wish. If you choose to share them, your favourite communities will appear on your profile as icons. Go to User Page => Profile Settings and choose whether your favourite communities should be public, visible to friends only, or private under the new menu option “Who should be able to see your favourite communities?”


-If you’re already using Miiverse, this option will be set by default to “Keep Private”.
-User communities will not be displayed on your profile.”

Doubtless this will improve user experience even more… but we suspect we’ll continue to see updates in the months to come.
