Enterprise Social Networks
Social Networks in general allow individuals to connect with
information and with other people who share their interests.
These connections occur in an online environment, where the
exchange is often written down and preserved for others to
later discover. Through Social Networks, we are creating a
vast archive of ideas, connections, and conversations.
Enterprise Social Networks yield these same benefits. Within
a closed, private network, employees can create for each

conversations. Having greater access to information about
their role, their project, and their organization allows
employees to work more efficiently and to innovate more
Knowledge increases by sharing.
