Social business defn #1 (philanthropic)“a social business is a non-loss, non-dividend company designed toaddress a social objective within the highly regulated marketplace oftoday.” (Wikipedia/Nobel Laureate Prof. Muhammad Yunus)“ideas, businesses and people who are creating positive socialchange.” (socialbusiness.org)

  15. 15. “Social networking applications are not new to business. Most suchapplications fall into three main categories: external relationships withcustomers and brand influences; internal relationships with employeesand partners; and societal relationships with citizens and communities.Many companies and government agencies already have a variety ofapplications in each of these categories, but much remains to be done.We are still in the early days of learning how to best translate our newcollaborative technologies and applications into more effective businessand societal relationships. The issue is not technology, even thoughsocial technologies are still relatively new. The key issue isorganizational capital, that is, the management practices and culturaladjustments needed to enable the organization to deploy and takeadvantage of these new capabilities.”http://blog.irvingwb.com/blog/2010/09/reinventing-relationships.html
