NewsGator introduced a new software module for its social computing suite, designed to improve information sharing and business results. News Stream for Social Sites 2010 is an optional extension to NewsGator Social Sites 2010 designed to help paid users more effectively collaborate with colleagues.
The News Stream module enables organizations to select an unlimited number and variety of blogs, articles, Twitter streams, and other feeds to syndicate to the Social Sites 2010 environment. Individuals see only the stories that match their interests or news that colleagues have chosen to flag for them. Organizations can use the module to keep intranets fresh, relevant, and valuable.
News Stream stories appear in the user's personal activity stream, on their MySite Web pages, on their desktops, on their mobile devices, and in Social Sites communities. Users can tag, comment, and share news with colleagues and communities.
The News Stream module for Social Sites 2010 will be available this month.
