Nowadays more emphasis is given to social networking
What if employees can get this info much easier through an application which they access the most which is "Sametime"?
It would be good if we can find the ids of few important social networking sites in our sametime contacts so that we can add them directly through ST(one click) instead of getting the id from the person concerned and then logging into the social networking site and then adding the person
I have attached few screen prints related to this
1. An option must be provided under the Preferences section of ST where we can enter the user ids of few prominent social networking sites like facebook,twitter and linked in
2. Once this info is entered, the person who is viewing our sametime chat window should be able to view the ids and should be able to add us/follow us by clicking on the hyperlink present in Sametime through Sametime
3. Once the person successfully accepts, then the hyperlink should be disabled

Why not put a plug-in like Wildfire in to handle that? How do you handle the ST Gateway piece? You would need the GW for this, and have enhancements to the code to ensure encryption is maintained for the sites you seek. Which sites do you use? Social sites come and go... thinking a more lightweight solution would be better able to keep-up with the needs. Just a thought.

This might explain better what I meant by the Gateway Server...

Use Lotus Sametime Gateway to connect with any of the following gateways or communities:

Lotus Sametime communities deployed outside of your firewall
AOL Instant Messenger
Google Talk
Microsoft® Office Communications Server communities
Yahoo Messenger

The Gateway server provides the capability of presence and chat federation with remote Sametime communities, Microsoft Lync communities, XMPP-compliant communities, GoogleTalk and AOL.
