Google recently announced that they have created a new Google application for your organization. Like a copy room, coffee station or water cooler, you can create a bulletin board for your company, friends or even organizational team:
I’ve thought a lot about this challenge, and I’m excited to finally tell everyone about what I’ve been working on: a brand new feature of Google Apps for Your Domain called the “start page.” With this, organizations can provide a dynamic and unique-to-you central access point for essential information. Setting it up is quick and easy — much like setting up a Google Personalized Homepage — but with custom logos, colors and your organization’s own content, in addition to modules from our gadget library. Then each of your users can take your organization’s default page and change it up so it’s just right for them.
Could this be a new way to socialize in the office or just a new way to communicate to all of those people in the office, even if you’re not in the office.
Great new app!
