eLearning 24-7

Hodgepodge of social media components – albeit the extensive and main one – social networking with a FB, Linkedin components in there, and of course a blog – thankfully no pure micro-blog like thing nor wiki (A congrats on that one, btw). Blog – your external blog. the Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, External blog, IM connections – Yahoo, AIM, etc., Extensive API and Mashup directors for you to pick and choose from.
