  • When I first created a version of this presentation in 2002 while at Delphi Group, I'd initially thought I was already too late to experience or say anything 'new' and relevant. Turns out, I was ahead of my time. When presenting in 2008 at the AIIM show in Boston, had another packed room of 250-300 people, to whom most of this was still 90% new.

    Every time I've given this presentation at various conferences, it's been to a packed house, and a heck of a lot of fun to present.

    There's more to social networking than simply friending everyone in sight.

    There's more to creating a successful internal social network than just installing software.

    There are plenty of organizations that shouldn't even attempt to 'do social networking' until they create an environment and culture that won't just destroy any attempts by people to do social networking.

    No doubt - if you don't participate in social networking, inside or outside of your organization, you won't receive any of the potential benefits.

    You may, in fact, be significantly impacting your business, however, if you chose not to participate at all.

    There's a middle ground, however, and it's finding the appropriate ground for your organization that's the real challenge.

    The question becomes, then, HOW will you participate? What are you trying to accomplish? Are certain networks better than others, for those purposes? How do you keep your corporate secrets from washing out into the network? Should you care?

    It's still relatively early days for online social networking on a massive scale, but there are some best and worst practices that you should be aware of, and not just stumble blindly.

    Plenty has been learned already - will you take advantage of lessons learned, or will your company flounder in this 'new media' and abandon before seeing any useful return?

    In my role as Principal and Co-founder at Information Architected - I am always open to
 Discuss, Debate, Consult and Educate your needs and concerns regarding social networking from an enterprise point of view.

    Social networking has made a huge positive impact on me as an individual, and in carrying across benefits through the positions I've held and work I've done for clients in the last 7 years.

    How can I help YOU make the most of social networking?

    Don't hesitate to get in touch.

Transcript of "Build Smarter Internal and External Communities"

  1. 1. Build Smarter Internal & External Communities via Social Networking Methodologies and Technologies ? Dan Keldsen Co-founder and Principal at Information Architected ! 1 www.InformationArchitected.com
  2. 2. “It’s Made of for People” What you should get out of this presentation... “Social Networking” is no fad... Best experimental playground is the public SNSes. Findability is the primary key. You need to decide what your reasons for networking are, and how best to accomplish those goals. Underlying principles stay the same, for the most part. 2
  3. 3. Step Back in Time... Social Networking + Venture Capital in 2002/2003 The cynic in me said “uh oh - another blackhole for investor’s money!” 3
  4. 4. The Applications are EVERYWHERE 4
  5. 5. What can social networking do for YOU? Good memory and “traditional” systems WON’T CUT IT ANY MORE You are using only 1% of your relationships on average... Until Telepathy is brought to the masses, we need help! 5
  6. 6. But First... Where did the premise of “Six Degrees” Come From? 6
  7. 7. Stanley Milgram Harvard Researcher Father of “Six Degrees” in 1967 More like NINE Degrees Some paths “can’t get there from here” (only 18 of the 98 Nebraskans made the connection) 7
  8. 8. Bacon Numbers Bacon Number # of Actors 0 1 1 1762 2 140433 3 380712 4 91811 5 7171 6 911 7 92 8 13 Total number of linkable actors: 622906 | Weighted total of linkable actors: 1834077 Average Bacon number: 2.944 (http://oracleofbacon.org/) 8
  9. 9. Customer Value Today - measure Lifetime Customer Value (an individual) Tomorrow - measure Customer Network Value (both current and expected lifetime) Score the network, target the larger chain, think BIG near-future: tie to meters/dashboards through sales, crm, marketing 9
  10. 10. They Speak, But Do You Hear? Internal External You don’t know WHAT you don’t know Awareness You don’t know WHO you don’t know Listen, engage, rinse, repeat! Responsiveness Customers (and employees) might actually know something
  11. 11. Participation You Your Organization Your Customers Your Partners Your Suppliers The World A million submarkets, of 1- to-1 conversations
  12. 12. Chaos Theory Magnification of Small Effects (Malcolm Gladwell - connectors, mavens, salesmen) Lorenz’ Butterfly Welcome back to the 60s (and 90s)! What seems random, isn’t - just need the math! 12
  13. 13. Visibility With no “map,” how can you navigate social networks? 13
  14. 14. With no network... There’s nothing to map or otherwise “mine” Build your network(s) first, but keep an eye on what you want to accomplish while you do 14
  15. 15. ? Broadcast Search “Does anyone know anyone at Cisco?” “no” (thanks for the spam!) “Yes, why?” “Yes, but I’d never tell YOU!” Hours/days/weeks/months later... “Sorry, Jim (@ Cisco) doesn’t work here any more” ! 15
  16. 16. Federated Search Good idea for “enterprise search” why not “relationship search?” Pull contact/context into a master repository (meta or central), with privacy and security controls and radically increase productivity AND opportunities 16
  17. 17. The Age of Relationship Intelligence Relational Databases marked the beginning of a new age of computing It’s no accident that Social Networking Tools took this long to arrive - computing power, infinite JOINs Before you can CODE, you have to UNDERSTAND - it took physicists, sociologists, anthropologist, mathematicians, and others to understand this - and NOW we can code 17
  18. 18. Faces of a Stranger “They’re the faces of a stranger, but we love to try them on” Knowing there IS a relationship is step one - might be enough for your need WHAT is the relationship? HOW STRONG? 18
  19. 19. You are Number 6 Bacon Number of 2 Patrick was in ‘Treasure Planet’ w/Jack Based on meeting once? a Angel who was in ‘Balto’ w/Kevin phone call? Require confirmation from both parties? Common workplace, alumni, interests? Frequency of communication? Spikes in communication? Public databases/networks? Private databases? Org charts? Length of relationship? Who “owns” relationship? (Average McGoohan number: 2.947) What’s automatic/manual? 19
  20. 20. Who owns relationships? Your Or Your Network? Company? It’s a Wonderful Life - What happens when a connector is removed? Brother dies, Evil capitalist runs the town, Wife becomes a spinster, Pharmacist kills kids. It’s chaos! 20
  21. 21. Strength of Degrees Trying to sell someone 6 degrees removed? Shoot for 2-3 degrees max. Looking for an internal expert - who cares how “distant” they are? Looking for terrorists, or tracing the spread of infections? There is HIGH value in distant relationships - perhaps to 30 degrees (Non-Obvious Relationships) (finding major hubs is a shortcut however - ask me about Pareto’s Law and Power Laws) 21
  22. 22. The Medium is... It’s long been held that the medium is the message The ultimate medium is ... US. (you, me, and the rest of the globe) The Fabric of Society takes on a different bit of meaning, eh? Wrinkle in Time - Fold the Market, Remove the Middlemen 22
  23. 23. Some Solutions
  24. 24. nTag Infrared and RFID Stores Profiles Tracks who met who and commonalities Can watch the network grow Exchange Biz Cards Live Polls 24
  25. 25. LinkedIn March September September 2004 - ONE 2004 2004 new contact later 3 yearsnetwork is 1200+, His later... so not much overlap, which is an IDEAL situation 25
