Gather has a new homepage for both members and non-members.
Your My Gather page will now be your homepage if you are a member and logged in. It still gives you access to your Friend Feed, Group Feed, and Feed Me; your profile; and all your content and comments. Alerts that you have unread Gather mail; pending friend requests, group invitations, or comments; and accepted invites appear in your dashboard. They have been removed from the header, so be sure to check your My Gather page for updates. In addition, you now have access to the Invite and Share functionality, as well as your Gather personal messaging mailbox from the dashboard area of your My Gather page.
Access to featured content, that was formerly on the homepage, and all the content lists that were previously links in secondary navigation are now part of the new People, Groups, and Explore landing pages.
If you tell your friends who are not members to visit Gather or you visit www.gather.com when you are not logged in, the new homepage will be shown. The new homepage will change from time to time and highlight the things members can do on Gather. It also lets visitors view the landing pages and search the site. Members can sign in on the homepage or click the sign-in link in the header to access a sign-in page.
