VoIP Firm Launches Interactive Online Community



Courtesy of TechWeb News

The company that provides the Packet 8 broadband Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) and videophone communications service has launched an interactive online community, creating a forum so its subscribers and users can collaborate.

The Packet8 Online Community, created by 8x8 Inc., allows users to network, post blogs, create forums, get technical support, list classified ads, share business tips, and learn about Internet phone service with VideoPhone users worldwide. Many of the company's employees, including CEO Bryan Martin, have created their own blogs.

Almost 40 percent of Americans reported participation in online communities, according to an AC Neilsen study conducted last fall. Forums that feature hobbies, shared personal interests and health-related topics are the most popular.

8x8, based in Santa Clara, Calif., specializes in VoIP products.

Sort of. We'll see.
No! It's too big for a pocket and too small for real computing. What's the point?
