Their blog post has some screenshots of what’s on offer: blogs, wiki, social network, bookmarks, documents and more, all under the one banner.
Apparently this is what companies want, all modules from the one vendor…here’s an example.
For more on enterprise social networks, check out the comprehensive post on TechCrunch.
More on Blogtronix:
- here is a user…under the Groups link on the sidebar are 3 groups: Blogtronix, Corporate Blogging, and Support.
- so a users page is a river of news of posts made to all groups, you can filter to just one group by clicking on a group link.
- a post on the users blog, when clicked on the Support Group
- here’s the same post from the main user page in the July06 archives (scroll down to end)
- here’s the same post at the actual Support group page
So this post has 2 unique permalinks, one at the group page, and one at the users page
One issue, when I’m at the Support Group I can’t limit posts by just one user, if I click on the user link that sits next to a post it takes me to their user page, instead of their user page filtered to that group.
A user page lists connections/friends, I can’t see Facebook social network type features, like private messages, comment wall, etc…
You can keep track of friends updates with an inhouse RSS Reader (internal and external feeds), but you can subscribe to anyone here, they don’t have to be the same people as your friends/connections.
I can find a wiki and documents, but I can’t see an example of forums, Q&A, expert locator, bookmarks.
The front page displays posts from all author’s by some selected tags, here is the Internet tag.
Here is an authors blog, we can see the same post above, but at the author’s site, this means each post has to unique permalinks.
If we choose a tag at the end of this post, it will again show us posts by all author’s with this tag, I thought that since we are on the author’s blog, we could see posts in a tag limited to just the author’s posts…you can do this from the tag cloud on the sidebar.
The weird thing is that when you click to see the whole tag cloud, these tags are no longer limited to the authors blog.
The front page is like a slice of the group blog page, this group blog page is like the backbone.
I see the profile has hyperlinks for interests, if this was aggregated into a group tag cloud, we would have an expert locator.
Only thing I don’t see are bookmarks, adding friends, messages and comments wall: bookmarks could be links blogs, adding friends and messages could help the authors communicate, as with comments wall (visitors could also use the comment wall).
