We have all received one at some point.
A message from an online provider referencing an upcoming change and how it may or may not affect us.
These types of communications are common but they can still cause a reaction of uncertainty each time we see one.
The first question we have is usually… “Does this affect me?”
The question coming in a close second is often… “What do I have to do?”
A similar situation gets the focus in this edition of Forum Focus.
It seems to happen on a fairly regular basis.
An online system or service posts a message about an upcoming change. A date in the future is usually mentioned and a description on what will happen is detailed.
These types of changes may deal with bugs in the software or address privacy protocols.
A first reaction is usually that feeling of uncertainty we mentioned.
This is especially true since membership site owners tend to use a large number of online services. In fact, it’s probably fair to say many membership sites come to rely on these online systems so any potential changes need to be investigated.
How much time and effort will it take to keep things running smoothly?
This forum thread touches on a message PayPal sent about security protocols a while back.
Does everything on your site/server line up with their recommendations?
We invite you to get all the details in the forum.
