First S3 application platform upgrade
XeeMe as an App
XeeMe is now an application on the S3 platform that can but must not be used in conjunction with other applications. Those who just want to have and manage a XeeMe without all the other apps can do it now with ease. The XeeMe specific Dashboard shows all XeeMe relevant information and allows to manage a XeeMe right from that dashboard without the need to understand any of the other application aspects. Once users are comfortable with their XeeMe, they may add Focus for networking with other XeeMe users, Buzz to support or create Buzz campaigns and so forth.
Buzz as another Key application
With the completion of the S3 platform Buzz users don’t need to understand XeeMe or any other application for that matter. All it takes is to add Buzz as an application if it is not auto-installed by the registration process. A user can now manage a Buzz campaign without getting confused by other aspects of the XeeMe system.
Braino Only Environment
What is true for Buzz is equally true for Braino. Those who signed up to learn about social media strategies and care less about other tools at that stage will not be irritated by score boards, Wall of Fame and other aspects of the technology mix we offer. A buyer of an online class gets Braino auto installed and lands directly on the Braino Dashboard page.
Application independent account administration
As part of the separation between platform and apps, we also separated the general account administration. It resides in the main navigation and covers all aspects of an account, independent of what applications a user is using.
The platform has one application independent dashboard showing a users Profile, credits, achievements, system update information as well as the latest Buzz Campaigns. Buzz has become a key application and as such it shows the latest campaigns on the main dashboard. Even if users are not using Buzz, they can still support it without installing it.
Score Board Update
Klout decided to have a policy that does not allow to list a Klout Score next to another score. Oh well. Since PeerIndex is no longer providing public scores, Kred has a hard time to get their website into a readable form, and connect.me is in a stage of new orientation, we decided to remove the external scores all together.

More intuitive – less clicks – easier to navigate
Obviously for those who were using the system for a while, this is a change that causes to retrain the mouse, that guides you to the right places. But all in all it is more intuitive and easier to learn for new users.
Technical Aspects of this upgrade
This upgrade actually completes the S3 Platform development. The Platform is now truly application and XeeMe independent. In the past the XeeMe architecture was still a key part of the platform itself. In other words, XeeMe became an autonomous application in the platform itself.
User administration is a huge part of every application, no matter how small or big it is. With the new user administration we only lay the foundation of a XeeMe in that process. But a user does not need to manage a XeeMe as part of the account administration. Application specific user credentials are tide to the application map and its DNA between a user and an app.
Genetically Networked Architecture
Since the inception of XeeMe we are using a genetic computing technology we invented and called it “Genetically Networked Architecture”. Almost all settings, attributes, rights, rules and capabilities are genetically encoded. That allows us to process a large amount of credentials in a fraction of traditional methods. We will share more about the GNA later. However the new platform is fully GNA enabled and allows credentials to be easily encoded and the inheritance of profile information into the DNA of application chromosomes.
