Jiglu enables staff to easily share their news and expertise by networking with others

Quickly spread news with status updates

Status updates

Telling everyone what's happening in your work is as simple as entering a few words and hitting return. Your status updates will be shown in the activity stream of everyone that follows you and in your user profile.

Find people to follow in the user directory or invite those you think might be interested in what you have to say.

Share useful links

Links

You can quickly share a link with your followers by pasting its URL in the status update box, hitting the clip button beside any link you've seen anywhere in the system or using a bookmarklet in your browser.

Links and their contents get specially indexed, making it easy to see what they contain and where and when they have been shared.

Deliver deeper analysis with a blog post

Blogs

For longer pieces, Jiglu makes it easy to start a blog and begin posting entries. Blogs can be for single users or groups of people who want to post on a particular subject. Images and documents can be easily attached, while content from approved web services, such as YouTube videos, can also be easily embedded.

Blog posts can be scheduled in advance for publication. Unobtrusive versioning lets you revise posts, in combination with other users if required, and compare any changes. Comment moderation ensures discussion stays on track.

Add your commentary

Commentary

Users can add their responses to content in Jiglu or intepret it for others using a variety of easy methods.

Direct replies to status updates and blog posts can be made. Users can also choose to start a blog entry or status update about items from a content monitor or collaboration space. Jiglu keeps track of where the information came from, letting you follow a thread as it crosses through different Jiglu groups.

Find colleagues sharing your interests

User profiles

A user directory and user profiles let you quickly locate people by name, team or interests.

Administrators can create multiple headings under which a user can then provide information, such as contact details, biography or presence on external systems. User interests are automatically indexed, enabling others to quickly locate those with appropriate expertise.
