Facebook in Clearspace, create content via email, and more!

Posted by Gia Lyons on June 16, 2008

I haven’t blogged about how ridiculously extensible Jive Clearspace is. Or, how active the global Clearspace development community is. No need. Just check out the Clearspace Plugin Catalog, along with the discussions and ratings for each plugin to get an idea. Tell your geek friends about it.
You say you want Facebook for the enterprise. How about Facebook in your enterprise profile?

The Facebook plugin integrates users’ Facebook profiles into Clearspace while allowing each user to control how (or if) their Facebook information is shown.

You say you want to comment on Clearspace discussion threads, documents and blog posts via email. You’ve already been able to do that via the Email Watch feature. But now you want to create discussions, documents and blog posts through email, too. Ok. Now, you can.

The Advanced Email plugin gives your users the ability to comment on blog posts, documents and discussion threads and to create discussion threads, documents and blog posts, all via email.

You say you want to manage rich media, too? No problem. You can easily embed rich media from consumer sites with these plugins:

Oh, you want to create videos on the fly within Clearspace documents? That’ll be here sometime in July – September:

You want to populate your Clearspace blog with content from some other blog? No problem.

You say you want a social software platform. Jive Clearspace might be what you’re looking for.

    Given all this, how do you expect us IBM UC2 folks to keep from breaking the 9th commandment? Seriously!!

    Whoops, I meant the 10th commandment…the part about not coveting your neighbors goods. Hard not to given all the functionality and plug-ins and such.

    Better get back to basic memorization – don’t worry, I wasn’t even thinking about “bearing false witness” against you Gia…even though I’m still bummed you left, I’d never resort to such tactics. :-)

  3. Interesting. With Facebook looking to gain an enterprise footprint do you see a growing relationship with them?

    Hello Kim! I don’t know, actually. That’s a question for our management team, probably. From a technical perspective, though, it’s just a matter of time before all of we social software vendors make it ridiculously simple to surface social data from consumer site within enterprise solutions. That’s what I think the DataPortability project should evolve to, if it ever plans to encompass enterprise efforts (see:

  5. Makes sense. I don’t know alot about DataPortability but it would make sense if someone were the ultimate “keepers” of my identity. Facebook, Myspace, Healthvault, Google Health all come to mind. Potentially a service like this could add transparency and credibility to whatever networks or communities I participate in.

  6. Thank you for putting this information out there, Gia. I authored a similar post a couple months ago at

    The Veodia plugin demo at looks great. Any idea when the Facebook plugin ( will be ported to Clearspace 2.x?

    Hi Rob! I do not know, but your best bet is to check to see if that question has already been asked and answered in the Jive Community, and if not, ask it. Just click on the “Facebook plugin” link in my post above to start!

  8. I drop a leave a response when I especially enjoy a article on a website or I
    have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion.
    Usually it is a result of the passion displayed in the article I
    browsed. And on this post Facebook in Clearspace, create content via email, and more!
    Connected. I was actually excited enough to post a comment :) I do have some questions for you if you don’t mind. Could it be just me or does it look as if like a few of these comments look as if they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at additional sites, I’d like to
    keep up with you. Could you list the complete urls of your community sites like
    your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
