Have You Seen What’s Happening on Our LinkedIn Group?



Hello all! You may recognize me – I’m Luke, a community manager on our BlackBerry® for Business LinkedIn® discussion group. I just wanted to take a moment to share some of the exciting things that are currently happening in our LinkedIn community!

The discussion group has been growing very quickly, with new conversations, ideas and members popping up every day. I’ll highlight two discussions in particular that have been really neat to be a part of, but first I just want to take the opportunity to thank the members of our social communities. It’s great to have a group of people who are using our products and who are willing to engage with us in feedback and discussion. It’s definitely encouraging to see these social properties grow and thrive.

Check out the following two discussion highlights and once you’re finished, head over to the BlackBerry for Business group on LinkedIn to join the conversation!

“BlackBerry PlayBook in Business”

This thread was started to get a feel for how the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet is being used in real-world, everyday business life. We always hope to understand how the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is being used by end users, learn new areas of application and to be aware of how various companies and industries are making use of our products in general.

The result has been phenomenal – many users have shared their personal experiences, discussed the variety of tasks performed and given their thoughts on the variety of features. I believe that there’s something here for all of us to learn in terms of how the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet can be used and how it is being used by individuals, groups, consumers, and professionals.

“What feature would you most like to see in future BlackBerry PlayBook tablets that has not been already promised?”

This is where corporate social media gets really exciting. This discussion thread is user-generated, and holds a goldmine of feedback on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. Many group members have shared what they already enjoy, but also what they hope to see in the future.

This feedback is constantly being consolidated and made visible within Research In Motion® (RIM®). In this group, everyday device users can have a say in the products that they’re using! The perspectives have been really great to be aware of, stemming from a wide variety of industries and use demands that individuals have as they apply the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet to their specific line of work.

These are just two of many great discussions occurring daily on the BlackBerry for Business LinkedIn group – and elsewhere on our social channels. I just wanted to share this piece with you to drive awareness and to thank everyone involved in these conversations that are helping to spread knowledge and improve the BlackBerry platform products of the future.

What are you waiting for? Head over and join the conversation.
