Boston, Massachusetts  --  The American University has launched a new community focused social networking website for its students, faculty, staff and alumni.

Using the CommonSpot technology developed by PaperThin, the new site features a wiki style informational tool about the university, student and faculty profiles, a University newswire and additional types of community focused content.

“As with all things on the Internet today, sharing is essential. Whether between students and friends, faculty and staff, or SPA and SOC, the new site utilizes CommonSpot to foster content sharing across the AU community,” said David Swartz, AU chief information officer. “CommonSpot makes site management, and creating and sharing Web content much easier which was essential to the successful launch of our new website, and in bringing the entire campus together as a community. Thanks in part to CommonSpot, AU’s site has vaulted into a new era.”
