I took some time yesterday to take a closer look at some of the non-FamilySearch products. It is interesting to me to see such a great push toward new collaborative efforts. Almost every product I examined had some form of collaboration tool. Take, for example, myfamily.com. This website is built on a collaboration-friendly platform with some fabulous UI work to boot! It keeps things very simple and streamline. For a quick glimpse, check out the features tour. Doesn't everyone need one of these on their website? I think they do.
Mr. Quass' site, werelate.com is another great collaboration tool. He likewise has a tour, which he creatively titles a "helicopter ride." Dallan has incorporated a nominate feature in his genealogy wiki.
One of my personal favorites for collaborative features is the facial recognition software integrated into MyHeritage. What better way to collaborate than to share those nameless family photos?
