Hello Zimbra Social Media Channels; Farewell Telligent

By | November 12, 2013
Since the acquisition of Zimbra by Telligent, the team has been furiously working away at merging our two organizations. Part of that merge includes our social media presence.  Many of you have probably noticed over the last several weeks that we have been directing everyone to our new Zimbra channels. We have phased out and shuttered our old Telligent channels, including our Telligent Facebook page, Telligent LinkedIn company page, the Telligent Google Plus page and the Telligent Twitter handle. It’s a little sad to see our old channels go. We had some good times sharing and chatting with you out there. However, though we said goodbye to Telligent social channels yesterday, today we are saying hello to Zimbra’s social channels. Please allow me to welcome you to our new Zimbra channels.… Read more »
