Sococo brings people together in virtual meeting rooms where they can "see" each other with simple bobblehead-style icons that provide clues to each user's participation in an online meeting. For example, an avatar wearing a headset represents someone participating via VoIP, an avatar with a phone to its ear is calling into the session, and one with its eyes open is paying attention to the screen-sharing portion of the meeting (as opposed to reading email in another window).
Avatars also blink to show who is talking at any given moment.
