Leading social HCM technology company Peoplefluent has released the next version of its enterprise collaboration and networking software, Socialtext 6.0. The new Socialtext streamlines employee interaction and engagement to boost business employment. Enhanced functionality of the platform includes micro-blogging, social networking, content creation, expertise location and video capabilities, and simplifies the process of sharing the expertise, ideas, and corporate data.
The environment Socialtext creates facilitates a quick search for people and expertise, the development of task-centered groups, and sharing and creating content. Socialtext 6.0 automatically adapts to various web browsers, OSes, and devices to further boost the user experience.
Socialtext releases version 6.0: Socialtext recently upgraded their platform to include several new enhancements and features. The addition of video technology allows users to record, host, and share videos with each other (among a few other things). The activity stream was also update to show a preview of any content that is shared in the feed. Search functionality was also updated with auto complete and term suggestions to help users find information. Finally, some cosmetic changes were also done to some layouts and the people and groups directories.
My POV: Some great additions here. Most of the features should be expected from most platforms but the video technology is something that many vendors still don’t offer (for some strange reason). Ironically video conferencing and recordings are becoming very popular within organizations so I’m glad to see that Socialtext added this to their recent release.
Socialtext, a social business/activity stream system, has released version 6 of its core offering, and it features a more comprehensive search feature, and a video integration right in the stream.
This is a major update for Socialtext, and video integration in version 6 extends beyond adding videos to the activity stream. Videos can be recorded, hosted and streamed to various devices, commented on and shared, and even be searched to exact moments. There are also prebuilt widgets available for sharing videos from third parties.
The activity stream has also been enhanced in Socialtext 6, and it features previews of embedded files from URLs, and an image viewer that shows pictures inline. The stream is also now perpetually scrolling, and that makes past information easier to access and find.
