Problem: Inconsistent collaboration formats
Online collaboration tools typically feature a variety of different collaboration formats. It's often unclear whether your contribution should best be posted as a blog post, a wiki, a forum thread, a comment or even a social bookmark. And then it's hard to keep track of everything, because each format operates by its own notification and navigation rules. Yoomoot merges comments, wikis, forums, blogs and social bookmarks into one simple and flexible format
Moots are like wiki pages
By default, Yoomoot users can edit one another's moots. Edits to a moot can be viewed and conveniently undone via the moot's history interface. Meanwhile, moderators have the power to reorganize moots in a more logical way (for example by breaking up an article into questions and answers).
Moots are like comments
Two types of moot, questions and answers, can be added as replies to other moots, including other questions and answers, so that discussions can be extended indefinitely and have many tangents. In others, these moots are like comments and forum posts.
Moots are like social bookmarks
yoomoot can be used to bookmark interesting web pages and post them to the yoomoot website for everyone to see. Bookmarks are one of the four kinds of moot.
Moots are like blog posts
Moots that you create or co-author appear on your profile page. Your fans can track these moots via an RSS reader or via yoomoot's 'favorite users' interface. Effectively, Yoomoot provides you with a blog (albeit where every post is simultaneously a self-sufficient item and a part of a wider conversation).
Moots go through a personalized human filter
Your profile also includes your 'recommendations': moots you agree with or recommend reading. Your 'favorite users' page amalgamates all your friends' recommendations. Thus yoomoot can be used as a Twitter-like system of spreading quality content between friends.
Moots are consistent
The four types of moot – article, bookmark, question and answer – all share the same basic features, making the process of organizing and accessing your 'collaborative documents', 'comments', 'social bookmarks', 'blog posts' and recommendations much simpler than on traditional social media sites.
