Salesforce is known for continually updating its products, launching new features and versions throughout a given year. So it makes sense that three moths after launching the company’s foray into social collaboration, Chatter, to the public, Salesforce is already releasing a new version. Today, Salesforce is launching Chatter 2, what it calls the “Next generation of social collaboration technology.” The new version will be available in October, says the company.
Salesforce Chatter, which was originally announced last November, was launched into public beta in June after four months in private beta. In the realtime collaboration platform’s first three months open to the public, Chatter has been adopted by 20,000 companies; with 25 percent of Salesforce’s client base using the platform.
