    Overview

    Chatter is a part of the sales cloud service that SalesForce1 provides for businesses looking to optimize their efficiency by transferring most or all of their data onto a cloud server. Chatter is the social media platform aspect of this service. It has many functions, including the capability to post comments as status updates for others to view, a news feed to receive these updates immediately, user profiles, and groups.

    Chatter is used widely to cut out the kind of inefficiencies that come from having a sprawling network of team members and locations for data that frequently never come together despite the fact that they are a9ll needed for the same project. With this service, team members are able to share,collaborate, and discuss ideas about their project, tweak each others progress, and create a more productive work force overall.

    Slack is where work happens. It’s a digital workspace that powers your organization — all the pieces and the people — so you can get things done.

    Slack brings all your communication together in one place. It's real-time messaging, archiving and search for modern teams.
