Tribalfish reinvents the term ‘Discussion Network’ by providing a 2011-level user experience that overcomes the depth limitations of Tweets and Facebook posts, the lag-time of blogs and forums, and the bloated nature of collaborative email threads.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) July 19, 2011
Tribalfish today opened its real-time discussion network, redefining how users complete discussions typically started (yet limited) on Twitter, Facebook or Google+. Tribalfish replaces existing blogs and forums with a long-form content environment that also leverages social network behaviors, making it easier to discover topics and capture new audiences.
Because social networks fall short of enabling a deep customer engagement experience from start to finish, they are mainly used to broadcast or discover news headlines that link to locations off of social networks for additional information or discussion. Blogs and forums enable higher quality content but with limited discoverability and interactive discussion capabilities. Tribalfish overcomes the limitations of both of these environments, enabling a completely new level of live, meaningful discussions between private and public audiences.
“Tribalfish reinvents the term ‘Discussion Network’ by providing a 2011-level user experience that overcomes the depth limitations of Tweets and Facebook posts, the lag-time of blogs and forums, and the bloated nature of collaborative email threads,” said Lyle Ball, chief executive officer, Tribalfish.
Tribalfish founder Chris Crabtree added, “With Tribalfish, we found a way to combine the ease-of-use and connectivity of social networks with the rich publication features of blogs and the active feedback of forums...ultimately, providing a much more meaningful and satisfying connections among people, topics and groups.”
Publishers, including online marketers and intranet/community managers, benefit from open, indexed and discoverable long-form content that behaves like a super-charged forum with the addition of a unique real-time audience counter, added social features to make content discoverable and a single dashboard to track interests, groups and individuals followed.
