Is there enough utilization of chatter that this will be effective?

I like the idea and use chatter a lot, I'm curious if other people do too.

Try setting your main page to if for a couple weeks. It mainlines you right to where the action is. Not the headlines, -the conversation. Not just the comments, -the latest comments.

It makes the whole Hubski experience more immediate and lively feeling. Instead of seeing a page of links with some various number of shares that you then regard and decide whether you want to click, you see your folks talking, and oh yeah, they're talking right now so you can just jump right into a live convo.

I use chatter all the time. It's the easiest way to find out if old threads are still active and find conversations I want to be a part of.

In the best case scenario, this change will encourage people to check it, then stumble on things they might not otherwise have seen. Chatter has never really caught on like it was originally supposed.

ecib told me it's his home page. I think it will make chatter more interesting.

I have it as my homepage too. I check the feed only once a day and keep up with what's happening based on chatter conversations. It'll be interesting to see how this will change my chatter - so far I expect it to be for the better.
