Simple but smart
As with many of these new private sharing services it’s hard to ignore the tumble weeds as they blow past while you wait for your friends and family to join up too. If they can even be bothered that is.
Glassboard have done something simple but very smart to help alleviate this problem. By letting new users join up to an existing group to which everyone is invited, this immediately lets you do three important things: Feel there is an existing community around the product, talk directly to the creators by submitting feedback and feature requests and finally discover people with whom you may wish to share privately in another board.
Glassboard also benefit by getting immediate and direct feedback on the product and can gauge the success of the on-boarding process in realtime. As always it’s the little things.
