Shareable Quid: 4 Distinct Types of Sharing

Up until the point of this post, "Shareable Quid" has been used as a blanket term to refer to many different types of sharing of a Quid artifact that a user might want to employ—for example, sharing a link to a synthesized Quid deck on the web, embedding a link with an interactive Quid visualization into a news or blog site, etc. Based on what we already know about our current and target users' various business cases for leveraging Quid data and artifacts, we've identified 4 distinct types of sharing: Collaboration, Engagement, Reporting, and Publishing. It is important to sub-segment general "sharing" because each of the 4 types yields unique requirements, artifacts, and workflows based on distinct user needs.
