Introducing Salesforce: A Real Time Social Network for the Enterprise…..CHATTER!!!!
What is Salesforce Chatter?
Allows any company to collaborate in real time with a secure, private social network for their business. Content, applications and people will now have profiles, feeds and groups, enabling them to be connected.
Developers will now be able to use the Salesforce Chatter platform to build social enterprise applications, and all 135,000 native Force.com applications will be able to tap into Chatter.
Can I Connect To Facebook?
Salesforce Chatter will let users post profiles on Facebook, which include things like contact information, area of expertise, work history and a photo.
The social network will also include the ability to post real-time status updates.
Salesforce is tapping into the real-time stream that will feature status updates, not only from people, but also from content and apps. Content will notify users in the Salesforce Chatter feed when new or updated content is available.
Users will be able to post content, as in documents, spreadsheets and presentations, in Salesforce Chatter’s feed. Companies can decide which employees have access to certain information on a network, with a multi-tenant sharing model.
Can I Connect To Twitter?
Salesforce Chatter will enable users to filter the most relevant Twitter feeds into their Chatter app.
- A user can set-up a Twitter search for a competitor and automatically stream the real-time results into Chatter.
Employees will also be able to pull information from their Facebook profiles to auto populate their Salesforce Chatter profiles.
Will be available on the BlackBerry, Windows Mobile devices or iPhone.
Will be included in all paid editions of Salesforce CRM and Force.com.
Chatter will be sold for $50 per user per month and will include Salesforce Chatter, Salesforce Content and Force.com.
Benioff will also be revealing more about Salesforce Chatter and its real-time strategy atTechCrunch’s Real-Time CrunchUp on Friday, November 20.
