MindMixer, one of the most powerful online community engagement tools in the industry, is back.
Over the past 7 years we’ve learned that to truly help organizations build stronger communities and make more informed decisions, they need to be able to rely on both quantitative and qualitative data.
After having hundreds of conversations with our customers, we've realized that while mySidewalk has grown into a powerful quantitative data tool, MindMixer remains a stronger qualitative community engagement solution.
For our current products, this means:
As of December 31, 2017 public profiles and map annotations will no longer be offered as a part of the mySidewalk product. Any open discussions (on public profiles) will end on December 31, 2017.
MindMixer will be the sole engagement solution offered by mySidewalk.
The mySidewalk team will continue building tools that make data easier to use and citizen feedback easier to collect. Best of all, we will be rolling out ways for the two products to enhance each other (stay tuned for more details).
Why does MindMixer matter?
People don’t always have two hours on a Tuesday night to attend a city council meeting. But that doesn’t necessarily mean they don’t care about their community’s future. In fact at mySidewalk, we know people care. We know because we’ve worked with thousands of local leaders to help them connect with passionate residents through transparent, meaningful and productive online conversations. It’s those experiences that make us who we are.
