The Socialcast Activity Stream provides a Twitter-like status feed for workers (similar to the news feed in Facebook).
While Twitter can often seem like a waste of time for most businesses, the idea behind the microblogging capabilities in Socialcast is to allow employees to collaborate and reach out to co-workers while cutting down on large e-mail threads.
Socialcast updates can be sorted based on things like questions and ideas. Updates can be sorted into customized categories and can have files attached to them.
5Updates on Colleagues
Simple social networking features in Socialcast let employees view details about co-workers and choose whether to follow the updates and messages from those colleagues.
If a post in Socialcast ends in a question mark, it is automatically categorized as a question in the system, making it possible to sort and track all outstanding questions.
Very basic analytics make it possible for administrators to have a simple understanding of how employees are using the Socialcast system.
