TeemingPod Basics

What is TeemingPod?
TeemingPod is a SaaS component that quickly and easily adds social interactions in web pages. For users, TeemingPod provides a small place on any Web page to get together and to interact on-the-spot, while staying on the page. For Web developers, TeemingPod provides a platform that helps to add powerful social interactions right inside their Web applications or Web sites.

What is unique about TeemingPod?
Embedded interactions. Guided interactions. Relevance-based display. These are the three big things with TeemingPod.

First, your social interactions are embedded right inside the Web content. You do not have to leave the content page and go to another social networking site to discuss it with others; instead TeemingPod fits right where you need it on the page.

Second, the interactions are guided by templates. You will not feel lost in a long threaded discussion, or a blog which rambles on, or a wiki that links in a thousand different ways. You will enjoy a structured interaction, such as a discussion with well-defined perspectives and points to support each perspective, for instance.

Third, relevant information automatically bubbles up in TeemingPod. This means, the power of social ranking and relevance calculation at your fingertips.

Do I need to install any software?
No. TeemingPod does not need any installations. It shows up on a web page in your browser. It only requires Flash Player 9 which is free, on your machine.

How will users use TeemingPod, once I set it up?
Users who visit your Web page will see a TeemingPod icon and click on it. This will bring up TeemingPod. They will interact within TeemingPod, and tuck it away when they don't need it anymore.

Which browsers are supported by TeemingPod?
TeemingPod is supported by most popular browsers including Mozilla Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer.
