Near-Time, an Enterprise 2.0 hosted collaboration service, announced the availability of social networking functionality for the Near-Time platform including a member interest engine, community level dashboard, and advanced search facilities. These capabilities are built on an integrated platform. Near-Time's on-demand delivery model allows community managers and members to leverage these new social networking features in their collaborative spaces. They can then create networks of communities, linking to other users and groups across Near-Time-enabled organizations and institutions, based on their interests, profiles, and needs. The platform update also offers improved search functionality, the ability to tag interests and users, new member profiling features, integration with Google Maps, and group calendaring.
