Okay, a quick look at Techmeme shows there's no shortage of "RSS is dead" kind of debates to go around, but many mainstream users on the web have no idea how to use it. We're offering an alternative built around specific topics to our customers in Facebook through a new application called the Dell Buzz Room.
The Dell Buzz Room Facebook app brings the top news, tweets, videos and photos from around the web. The tool uses cool technology from a company called OneSpot. We'll feature a mix of Dell and industry news in several categories. These categories include Environment, Education, Healthcare, Entrepreneurship, Cloud Computing, Social Media, Product News and Mobility. Similar to the new Power to Do More site, we wanted a way to incorporate the most popular industry and social content for our customers in Facebook, where they are already spending time online.
So how does it work?
Enter the Buzz Room through our Home tab on both our main Dell Facebook page and Dell for Business Facebook page. Once you’ve arrived, click on the color-coded boxes on the top panel of the application to choose your category and your content below will automatically update. Sources include Twitter, top blogs, top online news sites, Dell content sites as well as related photos and video from sites like Flickr and YouTube.
We want to hear what you think about the Buzz Room. Let us know in the comments below!
