    Good day/noon/evening

    I was just wondering if anyone has given up on other social networks to use solely BBM Channels?

    can't say that is in the near future for me. I don't spend a lot if time on Twitter, FB or LinkedIn but more people don't spend anytime on BBM Channels or just BBM in my area for that matter.
    I wish they would.

    I spent most of my online social time on bbm channels. I share what I find there on fb. However, my fb mates don't know the source is bbm channels.

    Love channels.

    I use them daily! Hourly.

    I use reddit tho on the computer.

    And added a twitter account mainly for things to post to my discgolf channel. But only for that!

    Never used twitter untill I started this channel.

    No facebook or linked in for me tho.

    I really like the added usefulness a channels brings to BBM. Especially to the feeds section but I so believe that it's still missing more than a few features. I don't think many people really use it either unfortunately

    It's interesting to see how people use social networks. I don't use BBM, I don't like it, but I do use BBM Channels since I have my own which is reasonably popular but it annoys me a bit how the channels feature seems to be buried inside the app. A casual user will never know such thing exists unless he goes digging into the app (Yeah, I know it's just one button, but still...)

    Am I the only one that feels BlackBerry isn't putting enough effort on channels anymore? BBM seems to be lacking development as of late.

    Right, BBMC should be its own thing, Open BBM/ menu / channels / my channels too many steps to get there IMO

    I personally do not see the appeal in the channels.

    To be honest, I really do not know how to use them. I sign in and just look for channels I like. I do not see the social aspect of this.

    Can someone help me understand and how to use it?

    Lol it doesn't really seem like you've actually used them

    Find something u like, let's say it's cars, and of browsing the Internet of information for it, you get that info right in the feeds tab of BBM. From there, u can comment on the article with others this getting the social aspect of it

    I do believe that it really needs to be updated though. It's been nearly a year with no changes

    On a personal capacity?
    - BBM Channels can only share your status & pictures & the features are pretty limited.
    - you cannot check in to a location & share with your friends
    - you cannot share a video or a song on BBM Channels, it is pretty awkward

    On a Brand capacity?
    - BBM Channels is not Web searchable so it can be suicidal
    - limited reach to BBM users only & that is pretty limited
    - sharing multimedia content is pretty limited
    - the only plus side is that it is easier for your customers to communicate directly to you.

    I see that BBM Channels has a long long way to go before it will be a formidable competition to other social networking tools.

    I don't think that BBM Channels is ready or is capable to be a full fledged social network to replace Facebook or other social networking sites yet. It's capabilities & features are too limited at the moment.
