While facebook is proprietary and applicable mainly for public social networking, Elgg provides an alternative to achieve the same by providing a private social networking platform. This is most effective in enterprises as data exchanges need to be always kept private and confidential.
Using Camphor Networks Platform, you can easily instantiate Elgg as just another application with the project. Once set up, users can use this to upload useful information with free thoughts exchange. We believe, at grassroots, this truly enables a large and highly productive atmosphere fueling collective innovation across the board. More than anything else, this can make working without Platform a very enjoyable experience to say the least.
