The Good, The Bad, and The… Better???

Spoke is upgrading its algorithm and will be re-processing its entire dataset, starting April 17th and running through May 2nd.

This process is going to make search results cleaner by reducing duplicate profiles and by adding deep relationship data for members. We anticipate it is going to last two weeks, during which time members will not have access to validation dates, or dates that information about a person was last updated in Spoke. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause our members, as we know many of you rely on validation information to send emails or build targeted lists of contacts.

As this necessary process runs its course, you will begin to see those validation dates return with a substantially higher degree of accuracy, culminating in the addition of highly accurate communication and relationship statistics for those of you using the Spoke Toolbar, context revealers, and grouping tools.

Stay tuned to the Spoke Insider Blog for updates on this process.
