CardPlayer.com Launches CPsocial poker community and social media websiteThe World Series of Poker is around the corner, and we wanted to give CardPlayer.com fans yet another reason to make our site their hub during the biggest poker event of the year. That’s why today we’re announcing the launch of CPsocial, which is our way of letting our users connect with each other and the poker community in general!

CPsocial is still in beta (which means we’re still tweaking it, adding new features, and ironing out some wrinkles), but we want to let you guys start diving in pronto. If you find any bugs or see anything you’d like to be improved or added to the experience, feel free to leave your feedback using the “Feedback” ribbon on the right-hand side of every page on CardPlayer.com.

Here’s what you can do with CPsocial:

1) Create a Profile — You can add a profile photo and list your age, hometown, online poker screen names, and Twitter account info in your own personal profile on CardPlayer.com. Your profile also displays your activity feed, which includes any blogs you write, comments you leave, or poker results you share. (Read more about all of those things below.)

2) Blog — People have been asking us non-stop for so long that we finally decided to give the people what they wanted: You now can blog on CardPlayer.com! Simply set up a CardPlayer.com account if you don’t already have one, go to your profile page, and click “Write a blog” to get started. If we like your blog enough, we’ll personally recommend it to other CardPlayer.com readers by putting it in a special “Recommended User Blogs” section. What’s more, if you post quality blogs often enough, we may even graduate you to our featured bloggers section with the likes of Daniel Negreanu, Doyle Brunson, and Phil Hellmuth! (No, we’re not kidding!)

3) Post your Poker Stats Tracker results — Now you can share individual Poker Stats Tracker results with the poker community! Whenever you enter a result, simply check the “Publish to Profile?” checkbox and a line will be added to your profile letting the world know about your tournament win or cash-game score.

4) Comments — Everyone’s usernames are clickable to their profiles across the site, which means you now can click through to see all of the comments someone has left, along with any other information they care to provide in their profile. And, of course, you can do this yourself to more easily follow conversations you’re having with other users in comment strings.

5) Connect to Facebook and Twitter — You now can connect your CardPlayer.com account to both Facebook and Twitter, making it super simple to both sign in and share content (including your new blog!). If you connect with Twitter, you have the option to share your Twitter name with others in the community so that they can follow you (and vice versa).

So, that’s what CPsocial has to offer for now, but we’re going to strive to continuously add to and improve what CPsocial can do (and a lot of that will be based on your recommendations and feedback). Enjoy!

This is the companion to the CPsociopathic Poker Community currently populated by assorted haters and ne'er-do-wells.
