Salesforce.com lands Facebook as a customer

Social-networking giant will use Salesforce.com's Sales Cloud 2 system and have access to Chatter, designed to be the Facebook of the enterprise.

Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff talked so much about the Facebook imperative that he landed the social-networking giant as a customer.

Salesforce.com said Wednesday that it has landed Facebook as a CRM (customer relationship management) customer for its sales operation. Under the deal, Facebook will use Salesforce.com's Sales Cloud 2. The system is deployed.

With the move Facebook gets access to Salesforce.com's Chatter, which is designed to be the Facebook of the enterprise.

In fact, Facebook and Chatter already look like they were separated at birth.

It's a small social-networking world after all.
