Socialware, Inc. Key Developments
Socialware Adds Advanced Natural Language Content Recommendation to Social Media Platform
Nov 13 14
Socialware announced new advanced natural language processing functionality, available immediately. This new functionality "reads" content that is available for advisors to share on social networks and, based on a semantic analysis of their contact's interests in their social profile, recommends which content be sent to whom. Socialware will also craft compliant emails to introduce the content, including mandatory disclosures. Sharing content that is relevant and useful is key to building strong relationships on social media. With this new capability, advisors can share recommended content that is specific to an individual's likes and interests based on the information in their social profile. Using a unique algorithm, the Socialware platform recommends content of interest that an advisor can share through email or social messaging, directly from the Socialware platform. Instead of sharing strictly corporate content that is generic and broadly targeted, the advisor can hone in on a person's interests and make the conversation relevant and valuable, which is key to building relationships on social. Advisors can set reminders to connect with contacts regularly to stay top of mind, and they can view a dashboard of metrics to track effectiveness of the content they share. This new capability is designed for the mobile social advisor and can be used compliantly from a phone, tablet or desktop computer.
