Both homepages provide a redesigned layout that includes a personalized newsfeed with updates and news from individuals within the network.  With the new Community Tab, members can create "mini communities" to establish smaller groups with similar interests, such as a local Medifast Weight Control Centers. Additional functions in the future will include a robust recipe section where members can search and submit recipes.
