Let's Be Social

Posted By David Marble, Thursday, June 20, 2013

The Social Media revolution has certainly had an impact on how people communicate. The early years of the technology affected mainly personal communications but over the last couple years, its impact on business has been heavily felt. Sites and tools oriented toward business applications have emerged giving us a wide choice of options for the business at large and the individual professional. For example, I have chosen to use TweetDeck to filter Twitter feeds into categories of OSHEAN related technologies and companies I am interested in following. Focused use of Social Media tools can be quite productive and efficient if used properly.


Along this line, OSHEAN has embarked on the development of a new web environment which blurs the line of what used to be a traditional web site and social media. We believe one of the strong benefits of OSHEAN is found in its collaborative nature and we aim to provide a new tool to foster that. Later this summer we will debut a new web site which will offer opportunities for on-line collaboration and a vastly increased repository of resources for our membership. 


The site will have Blogs and Forums to subscribe to, and areas for User Groups to collaborate. Members will have individual controls as to what they want access to and what services they wish to subscribe if any. We are excited about this development and will be showing a preview at our Member Forum later this month.
