Support for Social Networks

[tweetmeme source="wordpress" only_single=false]

We are working hard on a number of new things to support Social Networks like LinkedIn and facebook. Our task list includes:

a. Inside facebook Integration – Being framed within facebook, being able to use it within facebook, invite your facebook friends to join and share activities with you, etc.

b. Making it easy for logging into dunnitt from your existing Social Networking Logins like your facebook, twitter, MySpace, Google, Yahoo ones.

c. Being able to import friends or contacts from the above social networking sites, invite them to join dunnitt and share activities with you.

Our goal is to remove every hurdle you think there is, from participating, and using dunnitt!

Let us know your thoughts on what other social networking or other kinds of memberships you want dunnitt to support.

We hope to release this in a few weeks time!

What business are we in – Micro-Collaboration! And get more out of Existing Social Networks

[tweetmeme source="wordpress" only_single=false]

This week we figured out that the business we are in is Micro-collaboration!

Twitter is used for micro-blogging! When what you have to say to your social network or friends is short and sweet like what you are up to at that time or share an interesting web page you have come across, you use Twitter to share that information in a micro-blog!

dunniitt is all about micro-collaboration! You want to simply find out the status of something you are collaborating with your friend, family or colleagues at work or solicit their opinion about something, you need a micro-collaboration tool.

Micro-blogging is one way but micro-collaboration is every direction with every participant. Every micro-collaborator will be able to see what everyone else says in real-time from any device, any where !

Examples of micro-collaboration are:

  • Trying to set up a meeting with one or more people and trying to find a suitable time that works for everyone.
  • Catching up on the status of some activity you shared with somebody else.
  • Trying to organize a potluck dinner and making sure you don’t end up with everyone bringing only desserts!
  • Doing an informal poll on what kind of restaurant people at the office would like to go to for Friday’s lunch.
  • Creating a shopping list and more than one person updating it from anywhere in real-time!
  • Performing a quick brainstorm among two or more people on activities you can do this coming long weekend

Your family, friends and colleagues are all distributed among various social networks like facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Twitter, Gmail, etc. How do you collaborate with them without resorting to email and phone? Dunnitt!

You should be able to find your friends among multiple social networks, bring them into smaller lists of people you want to micro-collaborate with and then do it!

That’s what we are upto!
