Ask and You Shall Receive: Natuba Introduces SafeMode!

Natuba is a powerhouse. A site geared to boost the mobile photo-sharing experience is a smorgasbord of content. From folks growin' beards to pugs wearing sunglasses, there is something for everyone.

Push the "Surprise Me!" button to jump around the site. Mash the "Activity!" button to see a stream of recent posts and comments. And while you surf the Natuba waves, fear not the occasional shark. Your friendly Natuba Team introduces: SafeMode!

"¿Que?", you say. What is this new mode before me, this SafeMode?

Several Natubatons expressed interest in a content filter so they could share Natuba at their work and with their grandmother. The Natuba Team put our fingers to the keystrokes and created a system by which Natubatons could choose their level of comfort. That's right. You can now choose which content is safe for work and safe for grandma.

All Photos on Natuba contain a link to report the photo as inapproriate. The Natuba Team decides whether it should go into the general population of posts (SafeMode) or should be for mature eyes only (SafeMode off). Some photos are removed entirely, but we wont go into that (use your imagination . . . ok, enough, you're making me blush!).

SafeMode is enabled by default. This way a new user, or someone looking at a pic over your shoulder, can rest assured their first experience with will not make them blush also (be warned . . . you will still laugh and say "totally cool" several times).

If nothing is shocking to you, take SafeMode off.
If your temperament is more mild, leave it on.

The choice is yours and is found on the top of all pages within

Beard and Belly -- Day Seven

On Natuba this last week a lot of things have been growing . . . and a lot of things have been falling off.

Let's start with kcroy.

This guy knows how to get the job done. Over the last week this Natubaton has been stretching, biking and lifting his way back into shape. The best part is, he is letting Natuba be his accountability partner.

Make sure you go to kcroy's profile page. See what level of workout he is up to today.

Remember to send him a shout out of encouragement . . .
just wait till he is done with his nap.

Here is an even better idea:

Start that workout you have always meant to start. Let the Natuba Community know.

Now back to the face where it all began.
It all started with jonnyquest. He wanted to shave his beard off. He is an American, he can do whatever he wants.

He is also a Natubaton, so he decided to let us all watch it grow back.

Mind you were not talking about moving mountains. jonny quest did not find the cure for whatever or save a buss full of whoevers.

But he is sharing his freaking life and that is alright with me.

jonnyquest started an idea that will take off in ways a beard never could.

So come on Natuba . . . attack a project for a number of days, weeks or months and let Natuba know.

Natuba may be the road to six-pack abs as well as six-o-clock shadow.
