Adobe Media Server Standard does not support server-side scripting and therefore does not support social applications.

In addition to streaming video applications, Adobe Media Server Extended, Adobe Media Server Professional, and Adobe Media Server Starter can host social and other real-time communication applications. Users can capture live audio and video, upload them to the server, record them, and share them with others. These server editions also provide access to remote shared objects that synchronize data between many users, and so is ideal for developing online games.

You can use Server-Side ActionScript to connect to other systems, including Java 2 Enterprise servers, web services, and Microsoft .NET servers. This connectivity allows applications to take advantage of services such as database authentication, real-time updates from web services, and e-mail.
