Facebook's Monica Keller Joins Socialcast As Director Of Engineering

Facebook Activity Stream software architect and Open Standards advocate Monica Keller is joining the engineering team at enterprise software startup Socialcast.

Keller will be assuming the role of Director of Engineering at Socialcast, which provides software that combines activity streams and microblogging for larger organizations interested in collaborating around realtime data.

Keller was an Open Source and Web Standards Program Manager at Facebook, where she was an activity stream pioneer. She will now be helming Socialcast’s support of the Open Graph Protocol, also developed at Facebook. Socialcast will be the first enterprise software provider to support the Open Graph Protocol.

The addition of Keller to the Socialcast team represents a further commitment to expanding intelligence surrounding the corporate social graph. This new focus is the basis of many of the product developments Socialcast expects to launch before the end of 2010.

Previously a MySpace Group Architect, Keller had been at Facebook for six months before making the move.
