We live in an age when an unruly amount of content can be seen floating around the inboxes and browser folders of the majority of the internet-using masses. This is kind of a good thing if you ask me. It indicates that there is a strong desire amongst many to keep up-to-date on what’s happening in the world and that most of us have a seemingly insatiable thirst for learning new things.
Content has become a form of social currency. Sharing interesting articles with colleagues is one of the ways we demonstrate our interest and investment in the work we do. The downside is that this process of perpetual content generation, searching, sharing, and bookmarking has resulted in avalanches of information and clogged up inboxes. When stumbling across something interesting and work-related online we often bookmark the page with the intent to revisit it later and maybe share it.
Seems simple enough but a quick assessment will probably show that this process isn’t being approached very efficiently. Disappointed by the tools designed to help make bookmarking and sharing easier, founder Peter Rozee decided to design a more viable and practical solution himself. After a long self-funded journey of coding and development he has recently released Chabooli.
A Better Way To Bookmark
Chabooli is a communication, collaboration, and content sharing platform that operates in the cloud – making the information users share a simple click (and internet connection) away. Chabooli aims to serve as a, “digital postbox, content library, and conference room.”
This mix of communication and organization functions make it a very practical tool to use for project managers, small business owners, and anyone else whose job runs on communication and collaboration. Chabooli makes it easy to share a variety of content types. Bookmarks, documents, and PDFs can easily be shared across groups without emailing or having to share a bunch of links.
Tackling a project is easier with Chabooli because users can create a folder, drag and drop files into it, and select who they would like to give access to. Then all of the comments and activity can take place in one centralized location, which can help eliminate those endless email chains.
On top of making content easy to retrieve, review, and reply to in one concise thread, Chabooli comes with some pretty nifty features like:
- Dropbox integration
- Permission based communication
- Content organization
- Private and public sharing
- Cloud based bookmarking
- Folders are sharable across social networks
- Mobile device optimization
The combination of these features allow users to organize and share content quickly and effortlessly. Take the cloud bookmarking feature for example. A user can find something online, bookmark it, and then access it any time, from anywhere, on any internet enabled device. They can also share their bookmarks with others or keep them private.
This form of social content management has broad appeal to people working in teams. It’s about time someone figured out how to make collaboration a more social experience.
Chabooli is currently in private beta, with limited spots available. To request beta access, visit Chabooli.com now. If you’re in the market for even more social content sharing goodness, check out Chabooli on Facebook and Twitter.
