Liferay Portal contains several features and widgets for leveraging its social framework. The Activities widget lets you broadcast user activities on a Site. This is a good way for Site members to see what’s going on in their communities. When placed on a user’s private Dashboard, the Activities widget displays the activities of that user’s social connections. Users can make those social connections via the Contacts Center app, which lets them establish connections and followers throughout the portal. What’s more, widgets can be exported as OpenSocial gadgets and/or used with Facebook.
This guide shows you how to do these things, and more.
