Get Social with DNN Blog

As this attractive dnn 6.2 overview introduced below:

Everyone is talking social. And evidence is mounting that social collaboration has real business benefit. Social intranets drive employee productivity and increased efficiency. Communities turn customers into advocates and help grow business.  The latest version of DotNetNuke builds on the already strong Web Content Management System (WCMS) capabilities that have made it the number one Web content solution in the Microsoft ecosystem. The new release enables businesses to quickly build internal social networks to improve collaboration, communication and employee productivity. It also enables the creation of external communities that turn customers into advocates, which lowers support cost and increases revenue opportunities.

In the conclusion, the DNN 6.2 Social API enables developers to write applications that access and control the activity feed, user relationships, social groups, user profiles and notifications. Quickly these are modules (not distributed with the core) that are integrated with new 6.2 features (relationships, journal, notifications, services framework, etc.), such as Active Forums 5.0 & DotNetNuke Q&A 1.x. Now our ultimate dnn module - #SunBlogNuke will be one member to embrace those social features, especially for the journal activity stream.
