According to Chairman and CEO Marc Benioff, the acquisition will help Salesforce “deliver to the enterprise the same integrated collaboration and communication experience that made Facebook the world’s most popular Internet site.” No word yet on who will portray Benioff in the movie version.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
