Title: EXPOSING EXTERNAL CONTENT IN AN ENTERPRISE
Abstract:
Exposing content to individuals in an enterprise is provided. An external content sharing system includes a graph server comprising an API engine, a graph index, and an activity processing and analytics engine. When a user selects to share external content via a user agent, the API engine receives an API call including a URL of the external content from the user agent. The API engine accesses the content, extracts metadata, and stores the metadata as a node in the graph index, where connections are made between the node and individuals who are socially close to the user. The API engine receives a query request for content associated with an individual socially close to the user, queries the graph index, and provides a result including the metadata of the external content and the URL for generating and exposing a visual information element representative of the external content to the individual.
