What exactly is Miiverse?
The Wii U offers a virtual community where Wii U owners can share pictures, exchange messages, find new friends, and find help. Nintendo has done more than just bring a new controller to the public, they brought a virtual world to the console.
Everything you do in the Miiverse is stored on to your profile. All the pictures your draw, all the messages you leave. You can also easily locate all of the new activity by your friends. What they are playing, what they are drawing, and what they are saying.
When you first load up the Miiverse, you see there are 5 tabs.
User Menu - By clicking this option, you will have access to your profile, favorite communities, blocked users, search users, and settings/other. Your profile tells you how many posts, friends, following, and followers. You can click on "Yeah" when you like someones drawing or written message. This works exactly like our "like" feature on our forum.
Activity Feed - This feature shows you all of the activity from you and your friends. For example, F34R posted, "I like watermelon" in the Nintendo Land Plaza. Ray showed a picture of him getting the top time in New Super Mario Bros U.
Communities - Here you will find communities which act very much like sub forums for each game and app.
Messages - Here you will receive messages from anyone if your settings allow it.
Notifications - Here you will receive notice of new friend requests, and replies to anything you post in the community.
What is really nice about these communities is that you can access them at any time by pressing the "Home" button on your gamepad. Lets say you are playing Black Ops 2 and you are stuck at a certain spot. You can press the "Home" button and click on Miiverse. This will automatically take you to the Black Ops 2 community where you can then share your screenshot, and ask for help. I have noticed that it almost always only takes under a min before someone replies.
This is just the beginning of what this new feature can bring to the console. The Wii U is more than just a fancy controller, it is a whole new way to stay connected with friends and other players.

Nice one but remember as well Miiverse will remove post's if they involve keywords like uplay .com www. http: it seems nintendo wont allow you to post links to sites even if there a part of there games
Your probably right F34R, an automatic system that scans for outside links.
10 years and counting!
