2. Brand And Product Platforms

The main goal of brand and product platforms is to gather customer feedback and ideas, eliciting the power of the crowd to move them up the chain. Some of these platforms allow people to maintain extensive user profiles to let others know about their interest and expertise. This category compares community platforms based on ideation.

3. Content Platforms

Content platforms group content into several sub categories based on the architecture of the content and programming you are attempting to build. For example, this category may include Q&A platforms, business networks and small groups.

Finally you can add social website plugins to existing sites. This will make them more like social networks and inject a social experience. Internal platforms created for employee engagement inside companies can also benefit from these plugins.
