Hmm, I think this is a smart move by Salesforce. Offering social web functionality in an established (and secure enterprise system) is probably making more inroads for Enterprise 2.0 as a concept and mindset.
Yet, we will see how much of the transformative powers remain after the “corporitization of the social web”. It’s interesting here that at least the evolving nature & perpetual-beta approach to developing ind implementing solutions seems to pull through, see the video with Salesforce’s Parker Harris which I am linking to in an instant 😉

Update: this is worth of more analysis, this whole area of established enterprise software (be it CRM, ERP, SCM, …) and the interrelations with collaborative-minded Enterprise 2.0. Will see when I get around …
