Cloud Computing: Socialtext 4.0 Supports Groups, Microblogging Channels
Socialtext, the enterprise wiki pioneer, released version 4.0 of its platform March 3. The new release boasts a new Groups object to provide users with a "virtual gathering place," to rally around a particular topic or goal. Socialtext Signals, the company's microblogging tool, now lets users filter the short messages colleagues share with them by group. Socialtext Desktop lets users "flashback" from any microblogging message to see the context of the discussion at the time it was published. In this slide show eWEEK walks through the new capabilities, geared to trump offerings from rivals Yammer and Socialcast.
