Social Mechanics allows world-class companies to apply the same dynamics that power popular social networks to drive similar user behaviors right where they belong – on top of their own websites and applications.
These mechanics create a more engaging experience for users by making a company’s digital touchpoints inherently more social and dynamic. Empowering customers and employees with the ability to follow relevant people, content, products, and data, Social Mechanics provides better context for how other users interact with their favorite websites and get work done inside their critical enterprise applications.
Key Features for Badgeville’s Social Mechanics
The Behavior Graph sits at the core of Badgeville. In addition to fostering people-to-people connections like a traditional social graph, the Badgeville Behavior Graph empowers site owners to connect users through their activities around key objects, such as commenting on content or reviewing a product.
Social Context is a collection of rich activity streams that surface the contextually relevant behaviors users perform. With personalized filtering, end users can receive updates from just the people and content they explicitly follow. Leveraging Badgeville’s ability to process rich metadata, companies can also create Custom Streams that map behavior updates to specific content, site sections, and application modules.
Find & Follow. Users can cull their social networks to see if they have any personal connections on the site, and easily follow them and others. They can also follow specific pages, products, and content with the simple click of a button.
Real-Time Notifications. Alert users about contextually relevant behaviors as they happen in real-time, connecting them with valuable content and products.
