Salesforce News

More than 100 million people tuned in for last year’s Super Bowl, so it’s no stretch of the imagination to believe that the same was true for tonight’s match-up between the winning Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers. And Super Bowl XLV delivered. What an exciting game!

And in case you hadn’t noticed all the buzz over at the official Salesforce Twitter this week, they did indeed score the premium before-and-after-halftime commercial spots to advertise their Chatter service featuring a collaboration with Will.i.Am the Black Eyed Peas.
