    Our note taker's computer's battery died...and notes were lost.  So going from memory.



    • Introductions
    • Presentation by Susan Scrupski of Dachis Group - 2012 Social Business Trends
      • Susan Scrupski - Could you possibly attach your presentation or upload it to this group?
    • Discussion Topic #1 -  Success Stories and Challenges
      • External:  How do you keep people engaged and grow them to become advocates
        • Suggestion:  Focus efforts on getting them engaged on their 1st visit.  Make it easy for them to find what they need.  Walk through of the New Look: Thrive on Jive? experience in the Jive Community and how the app helps in this regard. 
          Note:  Thrive on Jive is a plugin written for the Jive Community; however, Jive Professional services can discuss implementing it as a PS extension on any hosted or on-premise Jive installation.  Contact Stewart Wachs for more information.
      • Internal/External:  How do you incentivize people to participate internal, external, or internal to external?
        • Suggestion:  Status Level tied to Incentives and Prizes that are relevant to the user-base
        • Suggestion:  Provide a safety net and/or scaffold to engage externally with minimal risk, such as a social norm that wraps information shared into an understood context. (i.e. Information provided here is protected under the following terms, ....)
    • Discussion Topic #2 - Jive Product Offerings
      • Jive Anywhere - Great way to quickly integrate any web based system into Jive.
      • Jive Cloud -  As a customer, you have access to the Jive Preview Community.  Join the The specified item was not found. for more information about how to use this Preview Community to plan your platform upgrades/rollouts.
    • Discussion Topic #3 - Jive Product Feedback
      • More documentation and exposure of Categories in the system.  Currently, not a lot of information.
      • Idea:  Ability to edit categories without editing content, similar to tag edit interface.
