Application: ForumFeed(tm) -- multi-party unlisted feed for private group information exchange
FeedBack ( 0) Because Enfeedia accounts can be designated as "unlisted", it's easy to set up an unlisted multi-party forum using an Enfeedia feed. 'Unlisted' has the same meaning as for phone numbers: If your feed name is not known to others, they cannot access your feed. And like the phone company, if you designate your account as being unlisted, Enfeedia will not reveal your feed name. Or you can choose more privacy by specifying the feed be "members-only" such that it is password protected.
The ForumFeed™ application is especially convenient when using ReadAFeed to access the feed. Enfeedia previously announced ReadAFeed (see news). ReadAFeed access to ForumFeed provides an elegant way for persons using browser-equipped cell phones to participate in the chat.
To give others permission to post to a ForumFeed, simply assign a reporter password to the feed. Each participant specifies a PIN to gain access to the feed without giving them access to or control over your account information.
You can think of Enfeedia's ForumFeed application like Twitter but without the 140 character limit, and with the ability for others to whom you give the password to post on your ForumFeed. And of course, you can take advantage of the other publishing features of Enfeedia such as attaching an image that can be a link and embedding multiple text links in the description. And also take advantage of the features of RSS feeds, like setting up alerts or subscriptions.
Anywhere one has access to an online computer -- including browser-equipped cell phones -- one can read and post to the ForumFeed. They only need to know the account name and feed name. If they wish to post to the feed, they additionally need the reporter password.
