Collaborate and Share News and Info with Large Groups via Cellphone: Celly | Technology WHS | Scoop.it

Celly lets you instantly group people and topics into cells.

 

Cells function as chatrooms where people communicate instantly via text-based messaging.

 

Cells can also include messages from the web or other social networks to capture your interests.

 

Anybody can instantly create, join, and discover cells by sending text messages to our phone number 23559 (C-E-L-L-Y). Cell membership and message content can be curated for security and relevancy.

 

Cells can be private or public and organized by name, topic, and geography.

 

To capture the flow of information through an organizational structure--like different grades in schools, bureaus in local governments, blocks in neighborhoods--cells can be connected to other cells forming a communication matrix.
