Newsgator’s Social Sites 2.0 integrates with Sharepoint to create a Facebook-like environment on an enterprise’s intranet. The video embedded below features Brian Kellner, NewsGator’s Vice President of Products, demonstrating the interface that the software adds to existing Sharepoint functionality.

Newsgator’s software was part of presentation by Lockheed-Martin on the results of its own 18-month project. “Project Unity” combined Google’s Enterprise Search Appliance (ESA), Newsgator’s Enterprise Server and Windows Sharepoint Services (WSS). Newsgator powers their feed management and reading experience. I’ll be writing about Unity in a future post.

You can hear more about Social Sites 2.0 from Brian in this Social Sites 2.0 podcast. (MP3)
