In this pattern, IBM Web Content Management (WCM) authoring processes is integrated with social facilities offered by IBM Connections, to make the authoring process more effective.
WCM authoring tools are increasingly central to the management of the websites produced by WebSphere Portal - managed pages is based on WCM - and so social integration of the WCM authoring process is an important part of a social portal.

- Publish content to and from WCM to IBM Connections using Social Media Publisher.
- Send a WCM Workflow Notification to IBM Connections Activity Streams.
- Action a Workflow Action Request via an Embedded Experience Open Social Gadget.
