Microsoft Selling SharePoint as Social

When most folks think of social networking, Twitter, Facebook and MySpace leap to minds. But Microsoft would rather you think about SharePoint. Microsoft is hoping that partners can make the point about SharePoint's social skills, and thus formed the Social Enterprise Alliance.

So far, it looks like only two vendors have joined the cause: speakTECH and Telligent. Not sure if Microsoft Googled or even MSN Live Searched "Social Enterprise Alliance," but if it had, it would've seen the first Google result is an organization that's been around for years and has way more than two members. Oops.
