SOCIAL APPS PROVIDE AN UNPRECEDENTED PLATFORM FOR CONSUMER AND EMPLOYEE INTERACTION – THEY SHOULD BE CONSIDERED THE NORM
Social Apps for us are the best. Back in the old days, the web merely used to push content, and provide little in the way of social interaction. Nowadays, if you visit a site that doesn’t give even basic social functions, it can be a bit of a disappointment. This page should probably not exist for too long as it is a part of everything we do – it’s the old 3ev dogma again: it’s all about the user.
