Present.ly: Nice Idea, Poor Execution.

December 24, 2009

This is regarding the free version of Present.ly.  The paid service might yield an entirely different experience.

Here’s a Snarky video of what Present.ly is suppossed to be:

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking, “why would I want to know what sandwich my co-worker is eating?”

So you get the idea: Closed off twitter for business.  I set up an account and realized how useful a service like this could be for small companies that need to communicate short form.  What I’m not so sure about  is whether  Present.ly is a business tool or a social tool for the office.

If your small company is heavy on collaboration and communication, I would  go with something easier on the eyes (Yammer, Co-Op) or something that gives the right side of the brain a little more nutrition (colaab, Zen)
