Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff talked so much about the Facebook imperative that he landed the social networking giant as a customer.

Salesforce.com said Wednesday that it has landed Facebook as a CRM customer for its sales operation. Under the deal, Facebook will use Salesforce.com's Sales Cloud 2. The system is deployed.

With the move Facebook gets access to Salesforce.com's Chatter, which is designed to be the Facebook of the enterprise.

In fact, Facebook and Chatter already look like they were separated at birth.

It's a small social networking world after all.

    Facebook is just using this service to see what the enemy is up to. This is where facebook going to have to expand, so getting close to the enemy is what is needed.

    It doesn't get much bigger than Facebook as a client, they are worth more than pure <a href="http://www.buygoldbullion.org.uk/">gold bullion</a> as far as I'm concerned Salesforce.com have landed a big hitter.
