Social networking is a cultural phenomenon. Social networks have evolved the online experience from a somewhat impersonal unidirectional experience into one of the primary vehicles of communication and interaction for many people. From consumers to colleagues within businesses and organizations, virtually every netizen relies on content, information and opinion from their friends and peers. New relationships are formed and old ones are reignited. Whether your goal is to create communities to bring customers together or provide your employees with a vibrant network of their associates, you need to move fast and implement even faster—that is where RapidSocial comes in.
As you look to capitalize on this phenomenon by creating focused social networks or incorporating social networking elements into your new online strategies, there are numerous challenges associated with getting started. That is why we created the RapidSocial platform. While there are many companies providing hosted solutions in the market today that enable you to quickly create a social network, everyone on the platform has the same feature set and user interface to choose from. However, success in social networking comes from the ability to innovate and differentiate your network.
The RapidSocial platform provides a set of components that have already been tested on existing social networks but are built to be customized for different user interfaces and additional business logic. What this means to you is that we can focus on the things that differentiate your business and your offering rather than building from scratch or trying to integrate disparate tools that weren't designed to work together.
The RapidSocial platform has the following components:
- Member management
- Member directories
- Group invitations
- OpenSocial integration
- Open source ad server integration
- Integration with public networks including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Flickr
The components are built in Ruby on Rails, enabling us to rapidly prototype and deploy new features and get you to market fast. ThoughtMatrix's experienced team members will work with you to create a world-class information architecture and visual design and then leverage the key components of RapidSocial to bring your concept to life.
Ensuring brand consistency and integrity has never been more challenging. From email to presentations to marketing campaigns, the sheer number of individuals that have access to and an impact on your brand has grown tremendously. Keeping up with the fast pace of business requires a frictionless system designed to provide the right balance of access and control of your branded assets.
