    • 7. Social Software Is Not A New Idea Until now, most PC software was designed for individuals using individual PCs. But today, more and more people are working in teams on networked PCs that require a new kind of software. Software that lets them quickly share ideas and information no matter where, when or how they work. Enter Lotus Notes. The first software than actually thrives on the fact that people need to work together to be effective. Lotus Notes creates a new communications environment where users can develop applications - for sales tracking, project management, customer service, and free form discussions of all kinds - and routinely access and share this information from their desktop to anyone, anywhere in the world. In fact, no other software maximizes your investments in networked PCs like Lotus Notes. After all, helping people work together is what Lotus does best. ` #DF12Social
