Salesforce.com has introduced a new enterprise collaboration application called Salesforce Chatter. A representative for the company bills it as a "Facebook for the Enterprise."

"Content, applications and people will now have profiles, feeds and groups, enabling them to be deeply connected," she tells WebProNews. "In addition, 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 instantly become social."

Salesforce Chatter lets users collaborate securely in real time with:

– Profiles
– Status updates
– Feeds
– Groups
– Social Apps
– Social Content (docs, spreadsheets, presentations, etc.)
– Social Sharing Model
– Twitter and Facebook
– AppExchange (apps build on Force.com platform)
– Mobile (available for BlackBerry, Windows Mobile device and iPhone)

The Salesforce Chatter social platform includes a rich set of pre-built social components. Developers will be able to add profiles, status updates, groups functionality, feeds, and social content to apps. There is a set of APIs that let developers push data from any app into Chatter feeds, and there are Google, Facebook, and Twitter developer toolkits.

Salesforce Chatter will launch in 2010, and will be included in all paid editions of Salesforce CRM and Force.com. A new Chatter Edition will be sold for $50 per user, per month and will include Salesforce Chatter, Salesforce Content, and Force.com.
