Jive Software -- The Next Company You Need To Know About Jive Software has been around since 2001, but in the last couple of years it's finally found its niche: building a social collaboration platform for businesses. Companies can use Jive's products for internal collaboration, as well as to build external communities -- for instance, Nike uses it to create discussion communities around specific sports. The product is complicated and the company is in a buzz-heavy sector -- anything with the word "social" in it these days seems like an IPO candidate -- two reasons why it might be easy to overlook. But we just got off the phone with CEO Tony Zingale as well as Oudi Antebi of OffiSync, which Jive just bought. They convinced us it's time to pay close attention. Here are some reasons why. Big name customers. Two of our own observations: Enterprise software is underhyped -- consumer-facing tech companies like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn are so popular that it's hard to get in early at good valuations. So when is Jive planning to file for its IPO?

BuzzStream CustomScoop | Media Monitoring, Online News Clipping, Media Intelligence, & Media Analysis - CustomScoop Social Media Monitoring and Analysis with SM2 from Techrigy (Alterian SM2) Do you know the process your customers take to buy and connect with you? Their journey is often filled with many steps, stops and starts. What you do to help them along the way makes all the difference in gaining a competitive foothold. Taking action to improve the experiences your customers have within that journey can convert them from shoppers to customers, and then to advocates. Too often customers don’t ask for what they want, and rarely do they behave in the way you expect them to; however, they are telling others directly in social media. Taking a walk in your customer’s shoes isn’t necessarily a walk in the park, but it can provide a rich and contextual view into exactly where the customer is in their journey. Taking this view of your customer’s world lets you make better informed and faster decisions about value propositions, brand strategies, and, more importantly, how to engage customers.

Google Algorithm Changes Downgrade Sites With Too Many Ads Got a lot of ads on your website? Google's new search algorithm, which looks for sites that maintain a good balance of content and ads, could automatically filter it out of search results pages. The change comes after complaints of searches regularly turning up sites that favor bulky ads over the content. The search engine will show more high-quality websites by downgrading pages that display too many ads, according to a blog post from Google engineer Matt Cutts. Google, though, is already coming under fire for the changes. The change, Google's Cutts notes, will affect less than 1% of global queries or less than 1 in 100 searches.
