Launching Today: Find Customers & Do Networking on “Skype in the Workspace”
May 14, 2012
Today, Skype announced the launch of Skype in the Workspace, a new site to help startups, small businesses, and freelancers build their companies.
According to Skype’s blog post, Skype in the Workspace will help businesses connect with customers, suppliers, and partners – as well as useful professional contacts – through messages, talk, and Skype.
The details are still unclear, but this “community” site sounds a lot like a social network – and thus a LinkedIn competitor. Perhaps even Skype doesn’t know how it will evolve:
We’re looking for a limited number of participants to be a part of this beta and help us test, push, and stretch Skype in the workplace to its limits.
If selected to participate, you have the first opportunity to provide feedback to shape the community and impact the experience to benefit you and other businesses. And as we improve Skype in the workspace, we’ll open it up to more people.
Skype in the Workspace is in invite-only beta; sign up here.
