Nice product offering for its time but no longer relevant in the industry.

Pros

Slick design and snappy interface. Socialcast incorporates all the social media features such as news feed, threaded conversations, ability to create groups, etc. It is really is Facebook for work. I also like the ability to bring in external users and have them directly interact with company employees. Easy integration with single sign on providers and able to import users and groups from directory services.

Cons

Tends to be fairly noisy at times so you do have to manage your event notifications. Most of the time, many messages get lost in the shuffle. The productivity industry has now turned to the slack, Hipchat, Microsoft Teams style of communication which is much more dynamic and interactive. The instant messaging in Socialcast is pretty basic and doesn't offer any unique features of like voice calling.

The way we communicate is changing and companies can't rely on free apps to handle vital information...

Pros

It's a mature solution acquired by VMware. The advantage is that it's proven and friendly to the youngest employees. Every company must to invest in social network solutions for business because it is the future. Email will never die, but communication will be different. DO not rely your business communication using public services because it;s beyond your control.
I love the name also, it's unique and catchy... I love it.

Cons

Pricing model is hard to understand, that's the basic part. It should be flat... and charge only for extra storage or something like that.
