    I was wondering about it since Ive been using it for some days and I feel it has segregated oxytocin in my system because I created channels for everything in projects and teams. It works awesome, so much Im planning to invite all my contacts to a team I created to keep track and share many information instead of talking individually to all or in Skype groups that everything get lost in the time.

    What do you think?

    I tried slack for some days, it amazing looks professional, fast, the only problem I found is paying to get more than 10k messages which is the limit I think

    replacing skype, FB and other communication tools? I don't think so for...slack pricing is little high so not for everyone





    because in the beginning users need something for free

    If you can't afford $6.7 per user,you're doing something wrong with your business

    BTW I tried few weeks ago for an hour, it has some cool features

    Slack is like IRC but closed to invitation to teams and channels.
    You can make a very big channel with alot of interaction, or just a channel for even your family communication. (Just an example)
    Organize your whole life in an effective way. It even have internal apps: https://slack.com/apps
