Web Crossing on Wednesday introduced
WebCrossing Neighbors 2, a new version of its private-label social networking software. WebCrossing Neighbors is a hosted system priced starting at $195 per month.
WebCrossing Neighbors is intended to provide companies and organizations with their own personalized social networking system for interacting with customers and colleagues. Based on a dynamic tagging engine, the software supports “degrees of friendship” to help build social networks. WebCrossing Neighbors includes features like common areas for interest groups, personal user areas, blog pages, discussion forums, photo, video and file sharing, and more. It’s customizable and extensible, as well.
New to WebCrossing Neighbors 2 are multilingual support areas, so sites can feature multiple language support. A new “IP Address to Country Mapping” feature helps the system automatically detect the country that a user is from — this can be used for security or marketing functions.
