GroupWise and Social Net- working

A fellow GroupWise enthusiast contacted me recently to let me know that he thought an “I Love GroupWise” group should be initiated on Facebook.  There were a couple of less positive groups on the site, and while there were also a number of pro-GroupWise groups, none was really “active and visible”.  So, we created the I LOVE NOVELL GROUPWISE group.

There has been a lot of discussion of Social Networking lately among various groups that I’m associated with.  Some people think it’s a vital part of a total “Web Presence” for a company.  Others find Social Networking a waste of their time.  My take on it is as long as it’s important for one of Novell or Caledonia’s customers, then it’s important to us as well!

So, if you are a fan of GroupWise and Social Networking, come on over and join in.  You can find us here.  And as a GroupWise fan, you will also be interested in Omni-TS’s Facebook Integration tool for GroupWise!

See you there!

  1. So why is the group set as closed and require permission to join the group? If we want to get the world to see that there are many who love GroupWise, then we should make the Facebook Group publicly visible in FaceBook by anyone.

  2. I haven’t decided yet how I feel about it, but it’s easy enough to join a closed group, and I see no problems with leaving it that way overall. GroupWise users ARE after all an elite group of people, so being in a closed group isn’t a bad thing 🙂

  3. Oh – and by the way, it’s a closed group in that it requires you request to join it – but it is visible to anyone on Facebook. It’s not actually “private” in that sense!
