Miiverse on the Nintendo Wii U has been changed in certain ways. A new community has been created called Miiverse Announcements that can be found under User Menu where news and information about Miiverse will be posted. The changes include:
You can now see when you have a new Follower in Notifications.
After you comment on someone’s post you will no longer receive notifications when someone who is not the poster comments on the post. You will only get a notification if the original poster makes a comment.
A new post can only be made about every 5 minutes to prevent multiple posts from the same person appearing in a row. This time constraint doesn’t affect commenting.
Added “Users Aged 12 and Under”, updated “By Gamers, About Games”, and made other changes to the Miiverse Code of Conduct.
Nintendo wants you to stay on topic in communities and refrain from making posts asking for friend requests or asking people to Yeah your posts.
Nintendo has tweaked Miiverse in certain ways. You can check out the details below:

-”Other communities” is added, through this greyed out at the moment

Nintendo has revealed in a recent Nintendo Direct presentation that they are planning on expanding Miiverse this Spring. They are going to allow users to create their own communities, allow for more than one official community for title, improve usability, and add a filtering function in Miiverse.
Nintendo announced that will be able to browse Miiverse from a smartphone in Spring. It will start out as browser based but Nintendo is planning to make a Miiverse smartphone app.
It has been talked about before that the Wii U will allow you to take screenshots of games. In a recent Iwata Asks it brings out that if you press the HOME button on the GamePad while playing a game and click Miiverse, you will be able to post a screenshot of whatever was on screen when you clicked the HOME button. This feature could be utilized for helping people through tough parts in games or maybe even to just show off a cool scene in a game.
