Something about the name of this intranet software makes me smile.
I’ll have to put both Intranet Dashboard [Link] and Interact Intranet Suite [Link] on my list of products to watch out for. Although, and I am sure that I am not the only one that noticed this, both companies share very similar web strategies, in some cases right down to the wording. And don’t get me started on these ever-present contact forms that do more harm than good — I just wanna check out some hands-on info about the product without taking five minutes to fill out a form.
A quick follup to my post from yesterday: Over on Mashable, there is a short article about why your company should have a social media policy for external social media sites like Facebook, Youtube, Xing, or every other site where your employees can add a profile that identifies them as representatives of your company.
This article sums up the focus points that have to be taken into account if you are trying to establish a useful and usable corporate guideline for internal social media tools. Additionally, it links to a whole batch of best practice examples, from IBM and Sun up to the old lady of journalism, the BBC.
