What Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit have done for online sharing among friends, Honey hopes to do for sharing in the workplace. The company has developed an enterprise social network that people can use to collect, store, and share ideas, inspiration, and non-urgent news events with their colleagues.
Email is a great tool for sharing urgent messages, but the entire system breaks down when people’s inboxes start overflowing with links, notes, and other extraneous information that doesn’t need to be dealt with ASAP. Honey has developed a way for companies to bypass this issue, encouraging its users to post non-urgent communication inside the enterprise social network. Once your company has signed up, you can start posting content (like interesting news articles or lunch spot recommendations, for example) in your Honey newsfeed. Colleagues can check the feed for updates when they have time, rather than being interrupted by the familiar ‘ding’ each time a new email message comes in.
The content that people post to their company Honey feeds can be searched by keyword or browsed by popularity, date, or topic. Users also have the option to follow the topics most relevant to their departments or areas of expertise. Honey makes it easy for users to quickly scroll through newsfeed posts to get a feel for what their colleagues have been saying. They can also check Honey from their smartphones when they’re not in the office.
