Just came across Melcrum’s Communicators’ Network, a community based social network.
I’ve just had a snoop around and it seems to be social networking across groups.
All users have a profile, showing:
- latest blog posts
- expert tags (by interest, and by specialisation)
- it doesn’t say what groups a user is a member of
- it doesn’t have the latest forum posts by a user
Here is an example user.
The Communicators’ Network has lots of groups, and each group has members, and there is a forum for each group…I don’t see a group events, documents, wikis, etc…doesn’t seem very set up for groups, moreso for individual networking.
I can’t even see the latest blog posts, and comments by members in a group.
Here is an example group.
Not sure if it works this way, but what I’ve said before is essential that you can publish blog posts in your own user space, and decide to tag particular posts you want to appear in a group you are a member of…as not all your blog posts will be relevant to a group, or perhaps any groups.
I have a few more services offering groups and networking at my post, A community or network around your blog.
