Just a few weeks after Microsoft announced its SharePoint 2013 public beta version, NewsGator today unveiled a major new release of its Social Sites software that is compatible with both SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013 and offers an innovative way to find, consume and contribute content to make users smarter and more productive.
One of the new flagship capabilities of Social Sites is a completely redesigned user interface called Lookout that provides intelligent information streams and more user control over how enterprise information is consumed. With drag-and-drop simplicity, users can configure a personalized way to view all and only the content that’s relevant to them — creating a very different social experience. Users simply select the types of content they need – including activity streams, people, communities, topics, subjects, notifications, etc. – and Lookout intelligently filters out the “noise” from the useful information, serving it up in a multi-columnar dashboard view.
