Tribe is a platform to build a community, based on a collection of social media best practices, popular for its ability to deeply integrate into products and websites. It also includes a wide range of direct integrations with third-party tools and modular apps to extend the functionality.
Common use cases are social communities, private communities, support communities, Communities of Practice, membership communities, and MROCs (Market Research Online Communities).
Tribe is best for SaaS companies, retailers, gaming companies, and marketplaces. Customers love its ability to integrate into products and websites with embeddable widgets. Also, its design closely follows popular social networks.
A common frustration is Tribe’s lack of a mobile app, though its website is fully responsive.
