Steam's huge community update has just gone live, updating Valve's old systems to better introduce user made content to millions of users worldwide. To be fair, it will do much more to drive users into Steam's community profiles, driving traffic into "Game Hubs" and encouraging users to produce awesome content. In beta for just under a month now, all of Steam's exciting features are available to gamers right now.
Here's a quick overview of the new Steam features in the update in case you've missed the updates. Firstly, Steam has new "Game Hubs" for every single game in their index (or so they say). These hubs are centralized locations for screenshots, user made Workshop creations, videos and news, along with forums and comments as well. Steam
Groups have also been updated with a new layout, forums, and ways to personalize each group with favorite games and such. Similar to Game Hubs, each use's profile iis updated with a content wall showcasing the media they've introduced into Steam. Add in extensive new ways to follow friends and their gaming activities, and tons of smaller upgrades and Steam is looking better than ever for the greater gaming community.
Whenever you get a chance, mosey over to the Steam "Community" section and try out some of the new features. As a freshly launched system, there's bound to be some growing pains, some friends you all of a sudden know too much about, and other extenuating circumstances that may put you off. Check back in a month or so, and maybe see the new features in a new light, with content flourishing... or, you know, stagnating. Hooray for new features!
