The following list includes vendors in a variety of social business categories including Intranets, Communities, Enterprise Social Networks (ESNs) and Group Chat/Persistent Chat Rooms. Perhaps it would be better if I curated separate lists, but so many products seem to span categories.

Both small startups and established enterprise software companies are listed.

I have not yet included “Messaging Apps” like CoTap, Jive Chime, GroupMe, Talko, Mez, Lua
