Chatter is pretty much cast from the molds of Facebook and Twitter, but Salesforce is also enhancing it to meet the changing collaboration and communications needs of businesses.
It's been less than a year since Salesforce first announced Chatter and only three months since the company made the Facebook-like collaboration tool generally available.
Now the tool, which has seen rapid adoption by Salesforce customers since its rollout, is getting its first major upgrade. Today, in conjunction with the Oracle OpenWorld conference in San Francisco, the company is announcing Chatter 2, a feature-rich update that will become available next month.
