Some examples of the power of adding Social Networking to the Enterprise

Some folks wonder why anyone would want to add social networking to the enterprise. Let me offer some examples.

  • People get to say what they're working on. This not only improves awareness of what people do, but also allows others to offer their help or ask to shadow.
  • The content of chatter on the social network creates a searchable knowledge base that everyone in the organization can benefit from even if they weren’t directly involved in the original conversations.
  • It allows companies to connect with their employees much like public social media allows individuals to do on a personal level.
  • It offers a more modern document management system, or at least document management process awareness. You'll know when a new version of something is available or a new document exists.
