We use Social Text as a platform to air our issues with different departments. We voice our concerns and suggestions so we can help find a solution to the problems we incur on a daily basis. We need to have social text as an app so we can communicate in real time not only during work hours.

Best suited for: - Team of remote support is a great visual way to address technical issues; Especially when talking about production environments. - Team of Project developers, a great tool to do tests remotely when multiple people from the customer need to connect, Vuforia Chalk support group calls and differentiates each person based on the color of annotations. Less suited for: - IT teams, which its support is mainly focused on SW issues.

Cons
Discontinued Products
  • Search needs a ton of improvements. It was very slow a year ago
  • Search result quality was also not that good
  • I know they have improved their UI recently but when i used it last year it did not really have any design elements which could be used to make the articles look more presentable. It was important for us as we used it for external communication as well.

  • No subscription version limited to 3 minutes calls.

I frankly like Confluence better than socialtext because of the speed and the quality of search. They also have better design elements which can help make the articles pleasant to the eyes.
