Innovative, perhaps foreshadowing things to come...
From an enterprise perspective, organizations require the ability to publish to a Facebook audience as effectively as to a Web site audience. From an employee perspective, social networking provides a ready-made knowledge-management platform for their workers, which will increase adoption rates to the levels that knowledge management was always meant to achieve.
In response to customer demand, the Alfresco Facebook Platform has been designed to ECM enable social computing tools. The platform allows content-oriented Facebook applications to easily be developed using the content services provided by Alfresco's core platform.
The Alfresco Facebook Platform enables enterprise content to be uploaded and shared with customers and employees in a controlled, secure and audited way. New platform functionality includes:
- Application registration
- Facebook authorization and single sign-on
- FBML support
- Facebook model support including:
- Application Friends
- Mini Feed
- News Feed
The Alfresco integration with Facebook provides a platform for employees to access and utilize organizational information effectively with tools they know and like.
