Salesforce.com previews Chatter social media developer site
Salesforce.com has launched the developer preview of Salesforce Chatter, which provides social networking
capabilities on its Force.com platform.
According to Salesforce.com, Chatter allows developers using Force.com to build social media
apps using just a few mouse clicks.
The Chatter platform allows developers to add user profiles, user status updates, Chatter feeds,
group discussions and support for social networks in their Force.com apps. It is also integrated
with the Google Developer Toolkit, which Salesforce.com said could be used to push data into a
Google Spreadsheet or query a Google Calendar.
The company has also unveiled Chatter DevZone, a Chatter-powered community where developers can
share ideas on building new social enterprise apps.
