Thanks for the invitation to visit the beta of the new site.



-- Navigation is difficult.  Hard to find my way back to the Collaboration community page.  New Blog is sometimes on left, sometimes on right of page.

-- Editor is OK.  Was able to proceed reasonably easily.

-- Some tools might be more handy. Like Byron Battles, took a bit to figure out to start a new Blog to give feedback (vs. a feedback button).

-- The overall index of communities is daunting.   There are so many of them that it may be hard to find key topics.  Thus, please don't try to use the community for an information communication vehicle.

-- Agree with Byron that it would be preferable to link to some space that I'm already using -- Facebook, Linked In, etc.

I added a friend based on request.  It seemed virtually the same as the Linked In procedure and worked all right.  However, finding the "create a new blog post" took several minutes of guessing and hunting before I found the right screen and tab to create this blog.


My initial impression is that this is the same as Linked In, and if I were to belong to one, what I am doing now with the Cisco Community is a duplication of effort.  I ask myself, "If I had not been invited to participate in the beta (and thanks for the invitation), why would I want or need to belong to Cisco Community and Linked In?"


Perhaps the answer will reveal itself during this beta along with other secrets of the universe.  More comments to follow...

Feb 3 - The sign-up process is quite similar, if not almost identical, to Linked In so far (being 10 minutes into this beta).  I just typed this into the space above this large space.  I am not sure the purpose of the top space (Now I is the title space, but that is not intuitive). It was not clear to post the comments in this space.
