What do you like best?
1. Socialcast has a a great user interface and it is very user friendly.
2. I like that I can communicate with coworkers and read periodic updates or funny stores (i.e. the woes of our new parking entrance).
3. Features that are a part of the most popular social media tools. @, multimedia attachments, tagging, following, content filtering/streams, groups, privacy controls, email summaries of recent activity.
4. It is a great social network for team projects, where you can share and keep files for records in a single place.
5. Comments also allow for a more fluid back and forth than emails.
6. I like being able to crowd source questions within my work community.
7. Where I could send an email and get one answer, with Socialcast I can send the question to an entire group and get multiple answers from different perspectives.
What do you dislike?
1. I don't like that you have to post to specific groups.
2. I wish if I posted something, it would send out a blast to everyone.
3. Sometimes when I tries to post pictures the, it does not post the right side up.
4. Unless I'm in a certain group, I cannot see what people post.
5. The groups are not easily searchable.
6. live chat app facility is not there.
7. We do not have the cloud version and the version that we have does not have the full functionality (yet) of the cloud version.
