This is the first birth release in the collection Anahita™ social applications and one of the most essential ones. We have been using the Anahita™ Groups for about 6 months now to provide service and support to the Anahitapolis members. The only problem was that until recently only the website administrators were able to create and maintain groups. In the 1.0 Birth release any of user types within the system, depending on the configuration, can be allowed to create their own groups, assign administrators, and maintain them.
An Anahita™ group profile is just like a person profile except that a group represents a collection of people coming together to collaborate and stay updated in regards with a shared goal or context. A group has:
- an avatar
- identity (title, description)
- a story feed
- a social graph
- a collection of social application that are available within it such as (Photos, Discussions, blogs, etc.)
Instances of applications such as discussions, photos, blogs, etc. work within group and people profiles. A group can be followed just like how a person can be followed. A group is entitled to privacy just like a person is entitled to privacy. Group administrators have the option to remove or ban followers from a group.
