It is still a new year and we're starting it with an awesome new component for all of you Joomla! users. Let me present to you EASYDISCUSS!
EasyDiscuss is a social collaboration tool that works for Joomla! website especially in gathering user-generated content on a specific topic. The component provides a centralized community-driven area for ideas, information, resources, and feedback that are valuable in making important decisions, or creating results.
So, if you are familiar with Yahoo! Answers, this component works just like that in your very own Joomla! website.

EasyDiscuss creates an environment for social discussion between users by users where everyone's' experiences and opinions are valuable input in deciding the next course of action.
Marketers will find this resourceful tool in planning for their next marketing strategy, or creating a new product/service. EasyDiscuss displays which discussion is receiving the most user participation each time a customer posts/comments on a topic and this allows marketers to engage with them.
