Google Now Supports “Author” Tag

Google announced support for authorship markup—a way to connect authors with their content on the web. They are experimenting with using this data to help people find content from great authors in our search results. They now support markup that enables websites to publicly link within their site from content to author pages. For example, if an author at The New York Times has written dozens of articles, using this markup, the webmaster can connect these articles with a New York Times author page. An author page describes and identifies the author, and can include things like the author’s bio, photo, articles and other links. The markup uses existing standards such as HTML5 and XFN to enable search engines and other web services to identify works by the same author across the web. If you’re already doing structured data markup using microdata from schema.org, they will interpret that authorship information as well. http://www.google.com

Mediafeedia Offers Content Management for Facebook

Mediafeedia announced an enterprise edition of its social content management software. The web-based Mediafeedia service connects to Facebook through its application programming interfaces and allows users to post directly to Facebook pages or schedule posts to be published later. Other social publishing products such as HootSuite support multiple social networks, but Mediafeedia wants to distinguish itself with its singular focus on Facebook. Many of the other social publishing tools were originally built around the features and limitations of Twitter and added Facebook support as an afterthought. In addition to publishing features, Mediafeedia offers Facebook monitoring services for large organizations. The Mediafeedia service will produce digest versions of those comment notifications for routine activity on a high-traffic pages and send special alerts based on keyword filters. So far, the main feature that distinguishes the enterprise edition is that posts are not labeled as posted via Mediafeedia (instead featuring the enterprise’s own branding). Free in its beta release, Mediafeedia is preparing to introduce a pro edition with additional page tab management features priced at $9 to $39 per month. The enterprise edition is priced at $199 to $3,000 a month, based on company size and page traffic volume. http://mediafeedia.com/

Nuxeo Releases New Version of Open Source Document Management Software

Nuxeo, the Open Source Enterprise Content Management (ECM) platform company, released a new version of Nuxeo Document Management and Nuxeo Enterprise Platform today. Nuxeo DM 5.4.2 offers a host of usability and social features to make the user experience even smoother and more streamlined. Key contributions highlight the value of community involvement in the strategy of continuous innovation for the Nuxeo platform. The release of Nuxeo DM 5.4.2 and its underlying platform, Nuxeo EP, demonstrates execution on a vision of ongoing innovation, community engagement, and open standards support, delivered to content management application architects and developers. Driven by community feedback, many of the new features and enhancements improve usability of the application, using state-of-the-art technologies and standards, such as OpenSocial, OAuth, HTML5, WebDAV, and CMIS. The new WSS connector was contributed by Nuxeo partner Gagnavarslan, an ECM solution provider in Iceland. The Nuxeo and Gagnavarslan teams collaborated to integrate this new component after passing the Nuxeo QA process. With this connector, the Nuxeo repository can be mapped as a drive under MS Windows or Mac OS X. Other contributions include ongoing enhancements for the OpenSocial integration from customer Leroy Merlin. It now supports the GWT OpenSocial container, making the dashboard faster, and providing more gadgets and layout options. In addition, the Nuxeo platform is now completely integrated with OpenSocial and fully supports OAuth, allowing for external gadget integration in Nuxeo DM, and the use of Nuxeo DM gadgets in external containers, such as iGoogle. OAuth support ensures control of which services are used and the scope of data shared between applications. While the GWT container is well equipped to manage dashboards, a new light OpenSocial JavaScript Gadget container offers a quick and easy way to add an OpenSocial gadget to a content template in Nuxeo DM. Other highlights of Nuxeo EP and DM 5.4.2 include: HTML 5 Drag’n’Drop; New system properties for the CMIS interface; Improved User Interface layout; Content Views; and Facets.
