Tonight, the folks at Empire Avenue are planning to announce their new and improved website design and user interface LIVE at SXSW. The event will be available online starting at 7 pm CST.
In an effort to whet your whistle, Mr. Michael Grills developed this teaser video (see below). It doesn't give you many details on what's to come, but it continues to push the Social Media Rocket Fuel: Expand, Engage, and Evaluate message.

What's New With Empire Avenue?
Many people have been asking, "What's going on with Empire Avenue (EA) tonight?" I admit, the details have been a little vague, but I think you will enjoy what the team has been working tirelessly to provide. In the following sections, I'd like to give you a quick look at what's behind the curtain. Are you ready?
Engage: Talk To Your Followers
The page immediately reminds me of the trendy service we call Pinterest. Built with square boxes, users can find their friend's latest updates from networks like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, WordPress, Instagram, Flickr, and more.
Not only can users read updates, but they can also interact with them. As an example, Twitter users can retweet or reply directly within Empire Avenue. Replying is also available for Facebook updates.
What I do not see is a way to like or share; although, I imagine that feature is probably in the works.
Other notable features on the Engage tab include:
- Recent mentions
- Recent shareholders
- Recent arrivals
- Post shouts to Empire Avenue, Twitter, and Facebook
Expand: Get More Followers
Evaluate: Measure Your Success
Other Enhancements: Scoring Google+ and Missions
One of the most popular additions to Empire Avenue was the Missions feature. Missions provide users with creative options to earn extra Eaves (e). Today, the company wants to actively encourage meaningful engagement through content and user-built missions.
Final Thought and Free Gift
Is the new Empire Avenue an all-in-one solution? Not yet. Does it give influence-based sites like Klout a run for its money? You better believe it. Will it cause you to spend more time following and engaging with your friends? Absolutely!
In closing, I would like to congratulate the hard work and dedication the whole team invested into this new product. I think they did a fabulous job and even deserve a few hours of sleep before storming off toward the next big project.
When can users expect the new changes to roll out? According to my source within the company, new members can expect immediate access AFTER the announcement tonight. For existing users, the ability to "Opt-In" begins next week.
Finally, as a gift to my valued readers, I have been authorized to give the first 10 people to retweet this article FREE (and early) access to the new web site. Make sure you include @damondnollan in your message to get credit.
