Blog is a journal oriented content displayed in reverse chronological order. Blogs are useful to provide commentary or news on a particular subject of choice, such as news on the business you're in, or local news; event details etc. Corporate Blogs and Group systems are used to multi-author one or more blogs from the same system and are a great place for social interaction and collaboration.

- Need to disseminate news about your business
- Multiple people in your group to blog and work together
- Internal Knowledge should be distributed to peers for review and collaboration
