Quoddy is an Open Source Enterprise Social Network, which shares a common "look and feel", and substantial functionality, with consumer facing Social Networks like Facebook or Google+ as well as proprietary Enterprise Social Network products like the products from Jive Software and Yammer among others. Quoddy makes up one component of the Fogcutter Suite and is based on Groovy & Grails. Quoddy could be termed "Facebook for the Enterprise" but that would be oversimplifying a bit. Quoddy is intended mainly for organizational use and therefore has capabilities which make it uniquely suited to provide the social fabric to support organizational knowledge sharing, knowledge transfer, collaboration and decision support.
Relative to consumer Social Networks and other Enterprise Social Networking products, Quoddy adds features like:
Technology Preview Release 1 (TPR1) is the first Quoddy release and provides a solid foundation for our future roadmap and the forthcoming fully certified and supported Quoddy Enterprise from Fogbeam Labs
