Speechbobble Launches the Social Networking Customer Council


TORONTO, Ontario - May 26, 2011 - Speechbobble™, one of Canada’s fastest growing enterprise social networking companies, today announced the launch of its Social Networking Customer Council™, a think tank focused on advancing social networking technology in the workplace and helping users discover new applications that can help their organizations work more productively and cohesively.

The Social Networking Customer Council comprises Speechbobble customers and business partners. The list includes more than 30 potential representatives from across Canada and the US in telecommunications, banking, publishing, health, music, travel and tourism, education, and government organizations.

Based on early results of customer pilots of internal Private Social Networks (PSNs) across North America, the fast-moving enterprise social media space is yielding new best practices daily. Customers and partners of Speechbobble will benefit from sharing those practices across industries and platforms to understand the compelling business case now emerging for internal social media as a part of the standard-issue corporate IT toolkit.

“Great applications are built on customers’ experiences and feedback,” said Josef Zankowicz, CEO of Speechbobble. “As we execute our product vision, the constant input from the Council will become increasingly important to tuning our social networking platform to maximize benefits for all our customers as well as help us anticipate future directions and requirements.”

The Council is being chaired by Dr. James Norrie, Chief Social Media Scientist at Speechbobble. Face to face meetings and online collaborations will be augmented by social networking on the Speechbobble platform. The Council will also aim to provide public comments on social networking trends and usage.

“I’m delighted to be working with Speechbobble users and partners to socialize thoughts, ideas and insights about the evolution of private social networks for enterprises,” said Dr. Norrie. “The broad representation of participants should yield stimulating results for virtually any organization that is considering social software for new ways of sharing business information and knowledge.”
