I meet with a lot of social software companies, ranging from startups that have yet to go public to the established large vendors. This presentation highlights three of the areas that I would like to see all of the vendors doing a better job on: 1) Activity Streams, 2) focus on the individual 3) Analytics.

These slides were presented at Defrag 2012 in Denver, CO on Nov 15, 2012 www.defragcon.com

  • While I'm not worried about total protonic reversal, I am concerned that having status updates, file sharing, Q&A, news links, CRM updates, social media feeds, workflow approvals, ERP orders, support tickets, polls/surveys and a dozen other sources of information all piped into the same stream can make social software almost unusable.

  • Allow users to control the content in the stream by voting for things (posts, people, topics) they like.Does not need to be complex like mail rules.Take a look at Zyte
